Hey Everyone!

Grilling season is upon us - hip hip hooray!

Has this ever happened to you...have you ever bit into a burger fresh off the grill and chomped down on a wire from the grilling brush? It happened to me last summer, and thank goodness I didn't swallow it.

We immediately threw out the burgers and brush away!

I began my search for a safe alternative, and I came upon this Super Safe Stone Grill Brush by Corona.

It conforms to all grill surfaces and actually cleans your grill 4x faster than wire brushes. It can be used on cold or hot grills.

Best thing is it is SAFE! Both because it's bristle free and made of Pumice Stone, an all-natural cleaner that's non-toxic and safe around kids and pets. Plus using this keeps your grill free from harmful bacteria attracted by food particles.

So easy to use... After just a little bit of use, the pumice brick conforms to any surface to clean between the grates. It works on Porcelain, Stainless-Steel, Iron and other grates - of any size!

Hint 1: Get It Hot!

Preheat your grill 15 to 25 minutes before you start cooking to make sure it reaches the right temperature (and to kill any bacteria).

Your grill should be 400-450°F for high, 350-400°F for medium-high, 300-350°F for medium and 250-300°F for low heat. A properly heated grill sears foods on contact, keeps the insides moist and helps prevent sticking. While searing doesn’t “seal in” the juices (contrary to popular belief ), it does create improved flavors through caramelization.


Hint 2: Tame The Flames

Flare-ups happen when fat drips onto the heat source and catches fire. This causes carcinogenic PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) to form and accumulate on your food.

Meat licked by flames also tastes “off” and flames may char the outside of food before the inside has thoroughly cooked.

To reduce flare-ups, select lean cuts of meat, trim excess fat and remove poultry skin. And, keep a squirt bottle of water near the grill to quickly douse any unexpected flare-ups.

'Go Green' Hint: Choose Local and Seasonal Produce

It's no coincidence that BBQ season coincides with the time many locally grown fruits and vegetables are at their best.

Local produce typically means fewer chemicals were used to grow and preserve foods, and since it doesn't have to travel long distances, less energy is consumed in transporting them.
