Grilling secrets revealed!
In past posts, I've made it clear that I love hosting cookouts in the summer. In addition to the time spent with friends and family, the real truth is, I LOVE to cook on the grill. Burgers, brats, chicken, and even are delicious when cooked over the open flame of a grill. Different foods require different temperatures to ensure proper cooking. Learning the best way to cook a steak to a perfect medium temperature, or to produce a perfectly cooked, moist chicken breast is an art form that takes practice to perfect. Grilled vegetables are a delicious alternative from the norm that take a certain understanding to execute properly.
Almost any type of food you can think of can be cooked on the grill. Many recipes that I have come up with on my own have been variations on marinades or spice rubs to created different grilled dishes. Through trial and error, I have learned some of the Do's and Don'ts for cooking certain foods on the grill, but it has taken me years to gain the experience and knowledge I have now.
