Grilling secrets for great food

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm not the greatest cook and I'm a terrible griller.  I'd like to improve in the grilling area, so I'm asking if you'd share your tips on how to grill great food.  I have both a charcoal grill and a gas grill.

Thank you in advance!

There was an issue of Bon Appetit that did a whole segment on grilling.  Check their online archives.  I think it was last summer that it published.

On a silly note-my best grilling tip is let DH do it!

Here's a recipe/technique from that issue:  http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2011/07/salt-and-pepper-rib-eye

And the link to the whole issue-I learned a good amount for prepping the meat before DH grills.  http://www.bonappetit.com/magazine/toc/july-2011-toc

 I let my husband do the grill. You are getting good tips though.

(My DH passed away last November.  He wasn't very good at grilling either.)

I like more of seasonings on my meats rather than marinades.

Quoting queenbree545:

What are some of your favorite marinades?

I'm sorry to hear that.  Had I known I would not have been so careless with my suggestion.

Me too!  I like to layer on the seasonings early and let them soak in and then do it again.  mmmm, so good!

Thank you.  Don't feel bad, because you didn't know.  The past months have been very rough, but we are making it through.
