Don’t Start Until It’s Super Hot
Heat the grill for 15 to 20 minutes before you are ready to cook. The very hot heat will sear the food when it makes contact. This will intensify the flavor and keep your food moist on the inside, carmelized on the outside. It will also prevent the food from sticking.
Give It A Good Scrub
Once the grill is very hot, use a stiff grill brush to scrub away past bits of food from the grates. Scrape again right after you are done cooking. Just be sure to check for wire bristles on the grates. These have been known to become embedded in the meat. They can cause harm to people who accidentally swallow them while eating.
Brush With Oil
Now that the grill is hot and clean, brush the grates with oil. This will further assist the food from sticking and also make the next cleanup go easier.
Check The Temp
Keep a food thermometer handy in order to be sure your food is fully cooked. Each brand will mark the perfect temperature for beef, poultry, veggies, etc.
Watch For Flare-ups
Fat can drip from the meat and ignite quite a flame. This can char your food and it can also be dangerous. If you are experiencing flare-ups turn the grill down a tad until the problem corrects itself.
Let It Rest
Give freshly grilled meat about 10 minutes off the grill before you eat it. This will redistribute the juices and make for an exceptional piece of meat.
