Tip of the Day: Grill Right!

  • Be sure your grill is hot enough before starting.
  • Grill meat and veggies about 4 inches from heat source and chicken about 6-8 inches away.
  • To add more flavor, try adding pre soaked chunks of natural hardwoods like Hickory.
  • Make sure grill is clean before cooking.
  • To prevent sticking, brush or spray a light coating of oil on grid.
  • If your grill has a top, close it to allow smoke to add its flavor.
  • To keep poultry from drying out, grill with bone in and baste continuously.
  • Poultry dark meat takes longer than white meat so start it sooner.
  • Sear chicken on the skin side first.
