Hello Everyone,

10dollarsOh sweetness, it's finally FRIDAY!

Today's quick issue is all about grilling. It's the season, it's the time, fire up those grills!

Let's talk about this great find for the BBQ Grill Mat.

The BBQ Grill Mat is a flexible, smooth, high-heat resistant cooking surface that you put over your grill rack so that food doesn't fall through. This allows you you to cook things like shrimp, veggies, chicken wings and delicate fish fillets without the hassle.

Handy Hints 1: Marinating is not just for added flavor

Marinating quickly tenderizes meat and also adds additional flavor. Use roughly 1 to 2 cups of marinade for every 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of food. The marinade should completely surround the food. Cooked meat should never be returned to a cold marinade.

Handy Hints 2: Direct and Indirect cooking using charcoal

For direct cooking on a charcoal grill, make sure there is enough charcoal to extend in a single layer 1 to 2 inches beyond the area of the food on the grill. Pour briquettes into the grill to determine the quantity, then stack into a pyramid for lighting. For indirect cooking, food is placed over a drip pan and the briquettes are banked either to one or both sides of the pan.
