Mastering the Classics on the Grill

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.

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.
