Where’s the wax paper……

 

When freezing hamburgers, chops, or steaks, which tend to stick together when frozen, separate them with pieces of waxed paper or freezer wrap. You will then be able to remove the amount needed without thawing the whole batch.

When grilling…….

 

Don’t pierce your meat with a fork or prongs. The juices will escape, making the meat drier and less flavorful. Use a spatula or tongs to move and flip your food.

Get the tongs out…….

 
Always use tongs or a long handled metal spatula to turn the food, never a fork. Why allow all the flavorful juices out?

When Grilling…..

 
Make sure the meat is fully defrosted and do not place the meat directly on the grill after removing from the fridge. Let the meat sit while preparing your grill. It will be no more than 25-30 minutes.

When grilling……….

 
Is it done? The best way to know if protein is fully cooked is to check its internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer.

Hold the Salt……..

 
When grilling meat don’t add any salt until the meat is cooked to prevent it from getting dry and tough, as the salt will draw away moisture.

Planning on using a Smoker, keep these hints in mind………..

 

 

* These’s a wide selection of wood flavors to choose from. Hickory and mesquite wood are very popular for smoking meat. The wood of alder, oak, pecan, maple and other fruit trees like cherry, plum, apple and peach are widely used for smoking as well. Try soaking your wood chips for 30-40 minutes and allow them to drip-dry before introducing them to the fire.

* Leave all the fat on the food as you are smoking and grilling meat. It will up the great flavor to the food and this fat melt off into the pit or grill.

* There should not be any flames as you are smoking your meat. If it flares up, take off the food and increase the rack distance above the flames. Or, spray down the flames using water.

* Don’t leave your meat to remain in the smoker when it is done or it will dry out.
