Grilling Do’s and Don’ts
1. Always start with a completely clean grill. The amazing fish that you cooked last week was indeed tasty, but unless you want a hint of fish with your hot dogs, you need to clean your grill before cooking. It is recommended that you clean your grill each and every time you use it. Wait until it cools down, and then clean the surfaces with baking soda and the racks with grease fighting dish soap and water.
2. Before you begin cooking, spray your cooking area with a nonstick cooking spray. This will prevent your meat from sticking with grill. When you are rotating or removing from the grill, then that will be easily removed. If your meat sticks and tears in grilling, you will lose a large amount of juice which having protein and your meat may dry out and hard.
3. Never place food on the grill before the perfect temperature for it. The fluctuation in temperatures will cause your food to dry, hard and out or burn. If you are using a charcoal grill then make sure that the coals are completely gray before putting the meat on it for grilling. This will allow the temperatures to level out and not to lose their taste, and the majority of the lighter fluid to burn off during grilling.
4. While marinating before you cook will add flavor, covering your meat in barbeque sauces before cooking will dry your meat out, and may even cause it to burn. This happens because most barbeques sauces contain high amounts of fat and sugar, which burn really easy. Alternatively, lightly seasoning your meat will work well, and will not have any adverse effects. If you must use barbeque sauce, only add it in the final minutes before taking your meat off the grill. Just remember that meat has a natural flavor and taste that is only brought out by grill barbequing, so you do not want to ruin that with small mistakes.
5. Searing your meat will lock in the juices and taste, but you do not want to cook your meat at that temperature for the whole amount of time. Once you have seared both sides, reduce the heat to medium. This will ensure that your meat is full of flavor and tender.
6. Once the meat is cooked, never put it back in on the same plate you had it on when it was raw. This could cause the spread of many unwanted illnesses or diseases due to a small mistake. Do not handle cooked meat with the same utensils that you used when it was raw or uncooked.
7. Never poke your meat while it is cooking on grilling. Poking holes in meat will cause the juice inside to leak out into the bottom of the grill. Not only will this make your food dry and unappealing at the end of grilling, but it also could potentially ruin your barbeque grill or taste. At the very least, it will cause a buildup of unwanted grease and juices on your grill or places, which will make cleanup harder for you after grilling.
