How are your barbecue skills?
One common issue is that the fire is too hot when the food is put on the grill. That's easier to adjust in a gas grill by reducing the temperature.
When using charcoal getting the right fire for the type of food being cooked is key. There are five different ways to set up the grill for optimum performance:
• single-level fire
• two-level fire
• modified two-level (half-grill) fire
• banked fire
• double-banked fire.
Plus, the shape, depth, and circumference of the grill may require modification to those five methods.
Learn all the details about these fires.
Other tips to make the experience and clean up superior are:
Brush debris off the grill when it's hot with a long-handled grill brush. Do this again after preheating the next time you barbecue to remove any debris from prior meals. NOTE: There have been recent warnings against using the traditional wire grill brushes. Here’s a link to an alternative:
Reduce sticking by oiling the grill with vegetable oil. Soak a paper towel and use long tongs to rub it over the rack.
A chimney starter is great for starting a charcoal fire. Add crumpled paper in the bottom, then fill it with charcoal. Light the paper and the coals are ready in about 20 minutes without the use of lighter fluid.
