We have a great guest post today from our friend’s at JES Restaurant Equipment! Check out the infographic, below, on some very common mistakes that grillers make, and the corresponding tips to help make your 4th of July cooking the best it can be!
Now that the weather’s warmed up, millions of people are firing up the grill and cooking up delicious meals. But how many of you are making these common grilling mistakes?
- Pressing your burgers flat with the spatula (smooshes the juices right out)
- Cooking too fast (or too slow – don’t forget the sear!)
- Burning your sauce (put sugary sauces on when you’re almost done cooking)
- Cutting into meats without letting them rest (resting the meat for about 5 minutes seals in the juices – thicker cuts need even longer)
We focused on tips for a gas grill (like the popular Holland Grills), but these tips will work equally well on charcoal grills.
