Grilling helps you bond with a close, comfortable gathering of your family and friends and helps you savor delicious food. There is nothing else like a smoked, browned steak or whole roast with grilled whole vegetables on the side and ice cold mint margarita which you labored away at and helped bring to life. Here we will try to assist and advise you in grilling a great meal so that the process and the outcome both are exceptional and hassle-free.

Grill Type

There has been much debate about whether to use a charcoal grill or a gas grill for grilling ever since gas grills have entered the picture. Although many grillers agree that a charcoal gives better, unfiltered, traditional flavor, there is no denying that gas grills have been gaining more fame than their predecessor. This is due to a number of factors some of which include that gas grills make the least amount of mess, are easy to clean up, can cook faster, and are more convenient and portable. Whichever grill you choose, make sure that it is easy to operate for you and that you are getting what you would want from a grill out of it, be it some extra flavor (which is subjective), or extra convenience.


It is especially convenient if you have your grilling and cooking space figured out and set up all before starting the process of grilling. Being prepared prevents you to get distracted by hurdles which could lead to burnt or undercooked food. Before starting to grill, you should set up a clean table or extra workstation next to your grill, at a safe distance, where you can easily remove the grilled food from the grill and place it on a plate. Some grills have several burners and cooking stations which you can utilize to grill and do other light cooking like browning vegetables side by side. Have people assist you in setting the food up while you are grilling to make sure that you avoid leaving the station at the food’s near-ready time. 

The Meal

Depending on what you are preparing on your grill, you should note down a couple of grilling specifics with regards to the meal you are cooking; what temperature to cook at, whether you will be cooking on direct or indirect heat, and the length of time required for it to be cooked. Make sure that your grill is pre-heated regardless of what temperature you will be cooking at and also ensure that you have already taken care of the problem of meat sticking to your grill by applying a bit of cooking oil on it before starting to grill.
