4 August 2010 One Comment

If you enjoy incorporating the use of a portable charcoal grill, it is important that you learn a few charcoal grilling tips. There are at least two unique methods when it comes to the type of cooking done on a charcoal grill. These methods are identified as “Direct” and “Indirect”. Prior to cooking on your grill, it is important to ensure that you know which foods are appropriate to these cooking strategies. Many meats that are large are typically cooked in an indirect fashion on the grills that are available today. Foods such as hamburgers and even hot dogs are typically cooked in a direct fashion.

If preparing meat, it is important to use approximately thirty pieces of charcoal for each piece. If you want to avoid the complications that are associated with foods that typically stick on a grill, you should use oil and lightly cover the grate where the food rests during preparation and cooking. If you shut the lid on your portable charcoal grill, you will discover that meats and other products have a higher level of taste and quality in general. If you enjoy using a portable charcoal grill, it is important to ensure that you maintain the product by cleaning it regularly and reducing the amount of moisture that it comes in contact with. If you follow these tips, you will find that it is easier to cook and clean the portable charcoal grill that you have.
