Keep It Hot. Preheat your grill 15 to 25 minutes before you plan to start cooking – this will help sear the food, improve flavor, and prevent sticking.
Brush It Off & Oil It Up. After preheating, use a wire grill brush to clean off any debris that has accumulated on your grill. Then, to reduce sticking you can oil your grill with a paper towel soaked in STAR Grapeseed Oil – perfect for the job because of it’s high smoke point.
Prep Everything Ahead of Time. Having veggies pre-chopped, hamburgers shaped, and meats marinated will make your job much easier.
Be Safe. Avoid cross-contamination by using separate cutting boards and utensils for raw foods, make sure to keep foods that you are marinating refrigerated, and never baste your food with your marinating liquid. Have some set aside specifically for basting or boil your marinating liquid first before using it to baste. Additionally, make sure you are grilling in an open area and have baking soda on hand in case of fire.
Let It Rest. After your meat is fully cooked and has reached the appropriate internal temperature, place it on a platter tented with foil and let it rest for around 10 minutes to let the juices redistribute.
Be Prepared. Have a first aid kit, sunscreen and bug repellent ready for your fun day of grilling outdoors.
