Start by organizing all the tools you need. A wire grill brush makes cleaning the grill grates easy. You’ll also want tongs or a spatula to safely turn and flip your meats. Keep a thermometer handy to ensure your food is cooked thoroughly. If you’re cooking vegetables that could fall through the grates, cook these in aluminum foil or a grill basket. Once you feel confident you have all the tools you need, start prepping your food and grill.
Start with a clean surface by brushing the grates. Next, you’ll want to preheat your grill for 10 to 15 minutes by closing the grill and creating heat zones. Heat zones can be created by varying the heat of your burners. Turn one on high heat, another on medium or low heat, and keep the others off. This allows you to cook burgers and vegetables at the same time. While you’re waiting for the grill to preheat, season your meats and vegetables for grilling.
Grilling styles will vary depending on what you’re grilling. Some experts say flip constantly and others say once. We suggest a happy medium. Flip a few times with three to four minutes in between flips. More importantly, you want to make sure you’ve cooked your meat thoroughly. Use a thermometer to determine the internal temperature of the meat and to gauge cook time.
