Safe Grilling Practices:

  • Get Your Grill HOT: Be sure to preheat your grill 15 to 25 minutes prior to cooking. Doing this will ensure that your grill reaches the appropriate temperature and kills any bacteria. The grill should be around 400-450°F for high, 350-400°F for medium-high, 300-350°F for medium and 250-300°F for low heat. 
  • Good Grooming is Necessary: Be sure to brush off debris when the grill is hot. Once the grill is preheated, use a long-handled grill brush to clean off the charred debris from prior usage. Don’t forget to scrap the grill off immediately after use!
  • Don’t Forget the Oil: Lean foods may stick even to the cleanest of grills. Reduce sticking by rubbing a vegetable oil-soaked paper towel on the grill with your tongs. **Do NOT use cooking spray on a hot grill!**
  • Let Your Meat Chill Out: Once your meat has finished cooking, let it rest on a clean plate and cover with foil for about 10 minutes. Doing so will help the juices in the meat redistribute evenly, YUM!
Alright, now that you have the safety part down, it is time to give one of these grilling recipes a try!
