How to Grill the Perfect Burger

 

1. PICK THE RIGHT MEAT
The fat-to-lean ratio of

the meat is critical for
a juicy burger; equal
parts ground chuck and
ground sirloin deliver
the best balance.

 

 

2. SHAPE SMARTLY
Before grilling, make
an indentation in the
center of each patty
with your thumb. This
prevents patties from
puffing up as they cook.

 

3. HANDS OFF!
Never press down
on a burger with a
spatula when it is
on the grill; all that
does is push out all
the flavorful juices.

 

4-GrillSteaks-GuidetoGrilling-S17D2

How to Grill Great Steaks

 

1. GO LEAN(ISH)
Trim off most of the
external fat before
grilling; it can cause
flare-ups on the grill.
(For extra flavor,
use trimmings to
grease grill grates.)

 

2. TAKE YOUR TURN
Grill over high, direct
heat and only turn
steaks once during
cooking – when the
meat has a good sear
it will release easily
from the grates.

 

3. LET IT REST
After grilling, steaks
should rest for 5 to 15
minutes, depending on
thickness, to allow the
juices to redistribute
throughout the meat.

How to Grill a Pork Chop

 

1.THINK THICK
Chops that are ¾ to
1-inch thick work best
on the grill because
they won’t overcook.
Bone-in ones have the
most flavor.

 

2. BRINE AWAY!
Pork chops are always
at risk for overcooking
and becoming tough,
but a brine helps
keeps meat moist
even if you leave it on
the grill for too long.

 

 

3. HANDLE THE HEAT
Set up your grill for
indirect grilling so you
can sear chops over
high heat, but then
finish them slowly
over indirect heat.
