Quick tips and techniques to help you master your gas grill
Grilling, like most forms of cooking, is more art than science. You can follow a few basic rules but after that, it is your skill and style that will make you a great griller or a not so great griller. These tips will help you with many of the problems most people have. As you will notice, maintenance and grill care as a big part of the process. So follow these techniques and avoid the most common mistakes people make when they fire up their gas grill.
A dirty grill flares up, smokes incessantly and leaves a bad flavor on your food. Keeping your grill clean will reduce all of these problems. This means more than turning your grill on high for 10 to 15 minutes before or after you use it. Certainly, much of the grease will get burnt off during these high temperature “cleans”, but not all of it. Food that falls into the grill, ash deposits, and other gunk remain until you get down in there and clean it all out.
Almost every story I’ve heard about someone burning food on the grill startswith, “I just stepped inside for . . .” Trying to catch the score of the game, put together a side dish, or just hang out with family or friends can leave your grill to get out of control and burn whatever you are cooking. Successful grilling means paying attention to what you are cooking. This is particularly true for foods you cook hot and fast like burgers, chops, and steaks.
Ever run out of gas while grilling? Ever done it while you have a house full of hungry guests waiting for dinner? If you have to run out to refill a propane tank you are going to be gone for a while. If you have a spare, full propane tank available it will take you a couple of minutes to get cooking again. Keep extra fuel on hand you and will never have to worry again. The trick is refilling the empty tank while you still have a full one hanging on the grill.
