Grilling Hacks for the Perfect BBQ

BBQ tricks make grilling easy + the food taste great!

It’s summer, which means grilling season has begun! These tips will make you love grilling even more!

  1. Onion Magic
    Before you start grilling your food, slice an onion in half. Then stick one half on a fork and rub along the top of your grill. This creates a non-stick layer, which will help stop your food from sticking to the grill. When you are done grilling, use the other half of the onion to scrub off the food remnants.
  2. Light it Up
    Out of kindling? No problem, just reach for a bag of chips. Chips of any kind are pure hydrocarbons which are soaked in fat—and both are pretty much the perfect food for flame.
  3. Soak
    Making kebabs on wooden skewers? Soak the skewers in water for about 30 minutes before putting your fixings on them. This will avoid them catching fire!

    Make your skewers fireproof by soaking them in water for 30 minutes before threading on the vegetables.
  4. Keep It On
    Don’t waste time shucking your corn. Instead, leave the husks on, trim off the excess silk at the top of the ear and grill as is. In 30 minutes time you’ll have juicy burn-free corn.
  5. Ice Ice Baby
    While grilling put an ice cube on your hamburgers to create juicier patties.
  6. Ring My Bell
    Do your stuffed bell peppers keep tipping over? Stop the madness! Grab some tinfoil, roll it into a coil and then wrap it around the base of your pepper creating a ring. This will keep it in place.
  7. Add Juice
    Spray your meat with apple juice. The sweet liquid will keep your meat tender and moist as well as add extra flavour.
  8. Organize
    Put all your condiments in an empty muffin tin. It’s easier than having to carry all of them outside.
