  • Know the difference between the direct and indirect grilling methods and when to use them.
  • Always preheat your gas grill with all burners on high or wait until charcoal briquettes are covered with a gray ash
  • Oil the food, not the grates!
  • Cook with the lid down–it reduces the cooking time
  • Never cook on a grill that is hotter than 600 F.
  • Clean the grill grates twice every Cook-Out with a brass bristle brush–before and after you cook.
  • Place food “across” the cooking grates so thin items don’t fall through the grates and you get maximum grill marks.
  • Flip only once halfway through the cooking time.
  • Brush with BBQ sauce only during the final 10-15 minutes of the cooking time.
  • Always let your food rest before cutting into it.
