Grilling With Sausages

Updated on August 29, 2012

Grilling Tips

Grilling seems so simple, and it is but there are a few tricks to make your BBQing experience fabulous ! There is more to grilling than just throwing food on the grill. If you want fabulous food every time from the grill, follow these tips.

* Do not put BBQ sauce on until the last 10 minutes of cooking. There is sugar in BBQ sauce and if you put it on when you first start cooking meat it will cause the outside to burn. Especially chicken which takes about 45 minutes to cook.

* For gas, do not put it on high. A lot of people do this and once the meat is put on the grill the fat starts dripping down into the grates and this will cause flames to start shooting up. Keep your grill at a low - medium temperature.

* For charcoal, always have a spray bottle with water handy. Charcoal gets extremely hot once the coals are white. Once you start putting meat over the coals, flames will start shooting up. Once this starts happening just use your spray bottle and spray it on the coals. This will prevent your food from burning.

* Less is more, when it comes to spices and sauces. Men especially go with the "More is better" motto, but not when it comes to grilling. Resist the urge to put on those extra spices or sauces. Grilling gives meat a unique flavor all of its own. You don't want to mask that flavor by overdoing it with sauce or spices.

* Move your meat around the grill. This is especially true if flames start shooting up and pretty soon your whole grill is covered in flames. Chicken and hamburgers are two meats that cause your grill to flame up. Move those meats around to the outsides of the grill and put your hot dogs, sausages, and brats in the middle to prevent them from burning.
