Some things just go together, like peas and carrots. You also have your Kick Ash Can and Kick Ash Basket, for example. Then, there is beer and BBQ. Nothing sounds like a better time than enjoying the two of these together! With so many kinds of beers out there, though, it might be hard to find the exact one that will go best with your meal. Let us be your guide!
One of the first things you learn as you attempt to up your grill game is to cook to temperature and not time. Steak should be cooked to 120 degrees and then seared, whereas brisket and pork shoulder should be cooked to 205 degrees and chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees.
The classic misunderstanding of time over temperature can lead to some embarrassing situations when cooking for a group. Your wife asks you when dinner will be ready and you respond with 10 more degrees. With steak and now pork, you can safely pull meat early and not risk your health, but never chicken. It must always be cooked to 165 degrees... or does it?
We talk a lot about the fine art and details of grilling here at Kick Ash Basket®. But we thought in this post we would step back and ask a basic question: what is grilling? We’ll take a look at the history of grilling, different types of grilling, and why we love it so much.
