Grills & Accessories: Tips & Tricks
CLEAN AND MAINTAIN YOUR GRILL
To get the most use out of your grill and best tasting food, keep your grill well-maintained. Clean the grill grates with a grill brush before and after use, scrub the interior monthly and thoroughly detail the interior and exterior every season.
A grill brush and cooking oil are your best defense against food sticking to your grill grates.
PREHEATING TAKES TIME
Give your grill enough time to preheat for optimum results. For a good sear, preheat your grill for at least 10-15 minutes. Keep in mind the weather can impact those times.
ALWAYS BE SAFE
Always handle grilling with care. Only grill outside, monitor it at all times and remain vigilant of gas leaks. If you have any questions, always consult your owners manual.
WOOD CHIPS BOOST FLAVOR
Using wood chips are a quick and easy way to switch up your recipes and infuse food with unique flavors. For tips on how to do this, click here.
KNOW YOUR CHARCOAL
When grilling with charcoal, wait until 2/3 of the coals turn white but before they smoke to prevent your food from overcooking.
LEARN YOUR TEMPERATURES
Use a grill thermometer to ensure your food reaches ideal cook temperatures for best taste and avoiding food-borne illnesses. Here are the minimum internal temperatures for safe food consumption, according to the USDA:
Beef, Pork, Veal and Lamb: 145 °F
Poultry: 165 °F
Fish and Shellfish: 145 °F
BUY THE RIGHT TOOLS
There are several tools you needed for best results. Start with the essentials, then add more gadgets to your repertoire.
