Grilling is one of the best ways to prepare your dinner. There is nothing like cooking up a nice steak or chicken breast and throwing on some veggies for good measure. However, as with any hobby there are some pitfalls that can turn an enjoyable evening into a frustrating experience—especially if you have never done it before. In this article we will explore expert tips on how to avoid those mistakes and get your grill ready for your next barbecue!
5 + 1 Grill hacks to remember
Grilling can be an art, so keep an eye on what's going on as there is nothing worse than burning your food. There is a little more to it than that though. Let's look at some of the best grilling tips that'll help you get more from your grill.
#1 Keep that grill clean!
Keeping your grill clean is very important when it comes to grilling. It means that you will avoid contaminating the food with old burnt on particles from previous meals, and it also keeps things nice and fresh for future barbecues!
#2 Let Grillbot do the cleaning for you
Grillbot is the world's first automatic grill cleaning robot that can be used before and after every grilling session as it can be used on hot or cold grills up to 250 degrees. You simply pop it on your grill and set the timer to 10, 20, or 30 minutes. Then just let it do all the cleaning hard work so that you don't have to, and settle down to the delicious food you’ve just grilled to perfection.
#3 Oil up those grates before cooking food on them
If you want those beautiful grill marks and to be able to slide your food around easily, then make sure that the grates are well oiled before you start cooking. Not only will this stop things from sticking, but it helps with searing in those precise char marks too!
#4 Place coals at one side of the barbecue rather than in the middle or only light one of your gas burners
This will allow you to set up a two-zone cooking system and avoid burning the food. You can use the direct heat zone to get a nice sear on the outside of your food and then move it to the indirect heat zone to control internal cooking evenly and precisely.
#5 Prepare your vegetables first!
As we mentioned earlier, grilling is an art so you should also be aware that it's best to prepare any veggies before throwing them onto the grill as they will take longer than meats such as chicken or steak if you haven’t sliced them accordingly. Vegetables contain a lot of moisture, which considerably increase the cooking time, unless you create a larger surface area by slicing hem up properly.
#6 BONUS TIP: Don't forget the Grillbot Carrying Case
The Grillbot Carrying Case will make it easy to bring your Grillbot with you wherever you go and will protect your Grillbot from the elements, no matter where you take it. If you're going camping or will be tailgating somewhere, the Grillbot Carrying Case ensures you won't have to take any time away to ensure your grill is safe and clean, as your Grillbot will be able to do it for you, just like at home.
