With summer in full swing, barbecues are a great way to spend time with friends and family while you enjoy the warm weather. Our chef Danny Gomez shares his grilling tips to help you safely grill this summer season. Danny has been providing exceptional food to one of our clients in the San Francisco area for the past five years.
Tip #1: Start your propane grill on high heat. Then, before grilling, turn the grill’s heat down to medium heat for 15 minutes.
Tip #2: Keep a small pan of oil and soak a clean rag in little oil to brush the grill before grilling. This helps keep food from sticking to the grill.
Tip #3: The type of food being grilled determines the grilling procedures. Marinated food (including sugar-marinated foods) must be cleaned off before grilling and grilled on low heat, which will prevent the food from charring and sticking. Any other meat or vegetables seasoned with oil, salt and pepper are fine as is.
Tip #4: If the propane grill flames up, turn off the grill and throw salt over the fire. This will ease the fire so you can resume grilling. Do not pour water on the fire – this will cause the flames to grow!
