How would you rate your grill skills? Do you just throw everything on and come back 20 minutes later? If you are looking for new grilling techinques, try these tips:

  • If you want perfect grill marks on your meats or paninis, place foil-wrapped brick on top of the sandwich or meat and grill for 5 minutes on each side.
  • Add smoky flavor to your grilled food by making a smoker pouch.
  • To help prevent drying out your food, seal in flavor and moistness by grilling your food wrapped in foil.

Smoking!  Yum!

I really don't have much time to try new things when I cook.

I try new recipes and spices often .. Does that count?

We use our grill a lot so I like to try new things.

I love trying new things.  Right now our meals are being mixed up because it's clean out the freezer weeks (was supposed to be one week, turned to 3) and it seems that I'm serving lots of odd combos for dinner.

I'm trying new recipes constantly and making up my own based on what I have and need to use.

We like to try new things sometimes. My family is picky when it comes to new things so I have to be careful as to what I choose to fix.

I never leave the grill unattended, I probably turn things more than needed lol. I want to try grilled pineapple.

Never squeeze a hamburger. Put things on opposite side of heat and they won't burn.

We get stuck in a rut around our house. We try to mix it up, but with busy schedules it is hard. I tend to try new things in the winter when we are stuck inside more.
