Things to Remember
Cook ProperlyOne of the best ways to ensure that you can clean your charcoal grill without too many problems is to make sure that everything cooks properly. If you burn the meat or use the wrong kind of sauces and spices, you can easily get things stuck to the grill which discolors the grill and is really tough to get off. Avoiding burning and improper cooking sets you up for a successful cleaning session and a lot less scrubbing! Not sure where to start? Check out these 7 tips for cooking success.
A BBQ is about way more than the sum of the parts. Yes, firing up some great meat and assorted veggies on the BBQ is a great start, but it’s not enough to throw an awesome backyard barbecue party.
While this is a little bit reductive, there are basically two kinds of backyard parties that you can throw for a BBQ. First, you can grill up a bunch of food and dish out to people one at a time as the meat is ready. Picture a party where everyone is wandering around the backyard, holding a red solo cup, or whatever they are snacking on. Second, picture a scenario where all the food comes out at once to a dozen hungry people all arranged at a dining table. The essentials for an outdoor dining experience and a “wander and grill” scenario are pretty different (and of course neither is the grill and tailgate!).
We’ll take a look at both scenarios so you can plan the perfect BBQ day:
Chicken has a thin line between perfectly cooked, tender goodness, and so dry that you wouldn’t want to eat it even if you douse it with a ton of barbecue sauce.
