Summer Grilling Challenge Day 8: Try a New Technique!
How diverse are your grilling skills? Do you just throw everything on and come back 20 min later? Do you try out different ways of cooking chicken, beef, and pork? Try these tips to mix up your meals:
- Leave the skin on chicken: Yes, it adds fat and calories, but it also adds flavor, helps to seal in the juices, and is great for stuffing with herbs and spices -- not to mention it gets crispy and delicious on the grill, so enjoy it once in awhile!
- Cook it on the bone: Chicken pieces -- or a whole chicken, butterflied -- with bones will grill up juicier than those without bones.
- Preheat for Pork: Preheat your grill before placing the meat to seal in the pork's juices and be sure to keep it 3 - 6 inches from the flame while it continues cooking.
- Stuffed Burgers: Go a little crazy and add a surprise in the middle of your burgers. Start off with just onions and cheese or get wild with these five recipes from foodrepublic.com. Not quite sure how to stuff a burger? Check out this easy how-to guide to get started.
