Summer is here...Here are some "BBQ rules":
Always keep your grill clean. This is essential for good-tasting food and general safety.
Always keep a close eye on what you're grilling. Food can burn quickly, so be on guard and check food frequently.
and fruits at the outer, cooler edges of the grill since they tend to burn more quickly than meat.
grilling low-fat meats and other foods that can stick, apply oil or nonstick cooking spray to the grill grate before placing it on the grill and before the grill is heated.
Turning food is essential to even cooking. However, turning too often slows cooking and can result in tough, dry food. Ideally, most fish and meats should be turned only once during cooking time.
Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 20 minutes before building kabobs to prevent skewers from burning.
Spice up your food a good hour or two before it hits the grill.
Don't apply sauces prior to grilling.
Happy grilling from our COOK LA kitchen to yours.
