Summer is here, and the grills are hot! Nothing is better than a weekend BBQ with fresh meat from your favorite Worcester deli and butcher shop, D’Errico’s Market! But, do you know that there are easy ways to bring your grilling game to the next level? Nevertheless, let’s get into it!
Before you starting grilling, it’s best practice to preheat your grill with the lid closed for at least 10 to 15 minutes before cooking. You want the heat to loosen any burnt pieces of food left behind on the grate. Thus, it will be easy to brush off! Furthermore, the heat helps to prevent the food from sticking to the grate. Also, if your stainless steel cleaning brush is bent, losing bristles, or rusty, you should replace it.
There are four big reasons why keeping the grill’s lid down while you’re cooking is imperative. If possible, it should be kept closed for most of the cooking process!
Overall, it’s a simple way to keep the temperature and heat inside the grill more consistent. With reliable and consistent heat, the grill can maintain its temperature for a better cooking process.
Indirect heat cooking is when the primary fire is on either side of the food. This placement is best for large and tough cuts of meat that can take more than 20 minutes of cooking time. Why? You don’t want the outside to burn before the center cooks!
On the other hand, direct heat cooking is what it sounds like. The food with being directly below the food! This type of grilling is best for small and tender pieces of meat that will be done cooking in 20 minutes or less.
