Hello Everyone!

10dollarsBreak out those grills, meats, and sauces people!

The weather is going to be fantastic this weekend here in Chicago, so I thought I would share some more grilling tips today.

If you are using a tomato and/or sugar based BBQ sauce you should not be adding it until the end of the grilling process. These products tend to burn easily and are not considered an internal meat flavoring.

Hint #1:

When roasting or grilling with a BBQ pit closed, open a can of beer and place the beer over the hottest part of the fire. The beer will boil and super saturate the air inside the pit with water vapor, beer flavors and alcohol. This will help in keeping the roasting meats moist, while adding flavor to the meat. YUM!!

Hint #2:

Whenever barbecuing, use tongs to turn the meat. A fork should never be used as it will punch holes in the meat and allow the natural juices to escape, causing the meat to lose flavor and become chewy. Flip never poke :)
