But here’s how even you can use some of the best grilling tricks that you might not have known. So get out of your kitchen and have the pleasure of outdoor cooking. Here are the top 10 ways to do it better.
1. Buy an organizing station
Barbecuing need several tools. The labor is a lot easier if you have all the tools and instruments needed, well organized in one place. That’s why you need a station. Keep all your utensils, sauces, and uncooked items there. If your station is a roller, you’re too smart.
2. Foil clean your grill
You might consider cleaning your grill to be a big task, but here’s a simple trick. Have you ever used a scrub on your face? It’s a similar procedure. Roll a piece of aluminum foil to make a ball. Now use this ball to scrape off all the things you don’t want on the grill.
3. Pizza is better grilled than oven cooked
Grilled pizzas taste much better than oven cooked ones. The level of cooking that the grills provide can never be achieved with ovens. Add to that the delicacy that smoked pizza feeds.
4. Grill taco shells
It won’t take much to grill taco shells, and the taste will be even better. So why go shopping for them? Grill your own taco shells at home for the most delicious and crisp tacos.
5. Cloves and lemons as pest repellents
Are insects and pests flying around? There’s a natural DIY cure. Take some cut lemons and cloves together and keep them near your grill. That makes sure you don’t invite the flies for the meal.
6. Keep clean with a well-lubed grill
Use grease to lubricate your grill before you start to cook. A lubricated grill means nothing’s going to stick to it after you’ve finished cooking. You neither loose bits of your food nor you get your grill dirty with scraps.
7. Boil before you grill
Nobody enjoys standing in the heat for an hour or more of grilling during hot days. So to cut down the cooking time of your meat, brine and boil it before you grill it. This will make your BBQ faster.
8. Two skewers to keep it from slipping
This is a crucial trick on this barbecue hacks list. If ever you see your food moving on the grill, you have to do this. Put two skewers through your food to keep it stable. Now your food can’t rotate, and you can easily cook it on all sides.
9. Have mason jars for a lot of things
There’s a reason that these jars are favorite of so many people. The number of things you can do with these jars is amazing. Fill them with drinks, use them as dispensers, or make them hold utensils and tools. The applications are immense.
10. Brine your fish to keep it together
Fish often falls apart after you grill it. Add a tablespoon of salt to four cups of water and make your fish swim in that for about ten minutes. Pat your fish dry and grill it. Now it won’t fall apart.
11. Herb it up
If you are a flavor fanatic, herbs can be an add-on. Herb up your barbecue for that amazing taste to your meal. Another great thing about herbs is that it’s going to make your surroundings smell like heaven.
12. Give it a touch of apple juice
Another great flavor booster for your BBQ can be apple juice. Spray about 500 mL of it on your barbecue to make it a bit more yummy. The juice also keeps your meat moist and supple.
13. Smokey lemons are great for your flavor
Cut your lemons and give them a light grill. These smoked lemons will do wonders to your lemonades and juices.
