When you sit down to eat at a restaurant, your expectations of a great burger is juicy, tender, and grilled right? Seeing those appetizing grill marks on a burger makes all the difference. Of course, it comes down to the person standing in front of the grill making your food. If you want to learn how to become a grill master yourself, here are a few tips and tricks to get started.
Basic Rules to Follow
Cooking on the grill is an American pastime and an honored position whether you’re hosting a party or preparing a meal for the family. In order to practice good grilling habits, you will want to begin by cleaning the grate to prevent your meat from sticking. Next, you will need to reserve some time for your grill to heat up. You want it to be hot enough to get your burger cooked all the way through, even if it’s just medium-rare. Depending on if you’re working with a gas or charcoal grill, you will want to keep an eye on your food. Some grilling items may need a lower temperature to cook, like your fish, chicken, and vegetables. If you’re cooking a burger, it’s best to use a medium heat for a gas grill. Flip when necessary to get an even grill on both sides of the meat. It’s also important to have the right tools to flip the meat and have them nearby at a moment’s notice. One tip that grillers should always follow is to not step away from the grill for too long; the last thing you want to happen is for your perfectly marinated burger to burn!
