Avid grill masters spend a lot of time perfecting their craft. Fortunately for homeowners, a great BBQ doesn’t require devoting every spare minute to learning grill techniques. All you really need is a high-quality grill and some tips on BBQ basics.
Charcoal vs. Gas Grill
Before you even get to grilling your food, you’ll have to decide which is the best BBQ for your specific needs. When it comes to picking a gas or charcoal grill—there’s no right or wrong answer—just a matter of preference. If you’re unsure which product is right for you—make sure to ask a sales representative to recommend a model based on your needs and lifestyle.
Indirect vs. Direct Cooking
When people think of grilling, many imagine high flames and higher temperatures; however, sometimes you’ll want to cook over indirect heat. Whether you use a charcoal grill, gas grill or even a kamado smoker—you can cook over indirect or direct heat. Make sure to pay attention to the recipe you’re using if it requires direct or indirect heat.
Safety should always be at the forefront when it comes to grilling. The two main things you’ll want to watch out for is cross-contamination and cooking meats to the proper internal temperature. To prevent cross-contamination, make sure to thoroughly clean surfaces and always use a thermometer to check the internal temperature of food.
