It’s grilling time in Tennessee and here’s 5 ways to improve your grilling!

My husband is an excellent griller. He knows his way around a good grill. Char-Broil Kettleman Grill would be a great grill that’s reasonably priced for $129 at Lowes or online It has some great features for a new griller. It has more control over temperature, flare ups and clean up. I need that since I’m so new to grilling. It also has a wide stance and heavy-gauge steel legs that add stability and make it easy to move around.

I’m a so so griller. But my husband knows what he’s doing and I’m just kind of winging it. So I thought if it is beneficial to me it might be beneficial to others to know about ways to improve your grilling. But first check out this video and learn more about the Kettleman grill.

And now the 5 Ways to improve your grilling.

  1. One way to improve your grilling is to marinate it. When you marinate your meat you are protecting yourself from some of the carcinogens that are found in grilled meat. The acidic marinades really help with this. Anything that has beer, citric juice or vinegar in it is a good marinade. Make sure you let it marinade for a few hours. 
  2. Don’t put cold meat on a cold grill. Let your grill heat up for about 20 minutes and then put your meat on there to grill more evenly. 
  3. Oil up the food or the grill. Do one or the other to see better-grilled food. You can wet a paper towel with oil and wet the grill grate before it is lit. Or you can put oil on the meat itself to keep it from sticking to the grate. 
  4. Leave room for breathing! My husband loves to put his charcoal on one side and cook the meat on the other side. This just allows the heat to circulate and cook the food so evenly. It really does make for a yummy meal when cooked this way. If you’ve not tried grilling this way you must! 
  5. Only flip your meat once. I’m the worst offender about flipping my meat quite a few times. Ideally you should put your meat on let it cook and flip it to cook on the other side one time! 

What’s your favorite way to grill meat? Leave me a favorite marinade or recipe you love to use when grilling!

  1. With the weather as it is in the UK, we don;t get to BBQ as often as we would love to – but when we do, I love the herby chicken that we make, or grilled salmon. I don’t really care to be honest – cooking outside makes it delicious anyway!

  2. I am a total meat flipper myself and would be tempted to flip way too many times. Those are great tips. My husband thankfully loves to grill and is really good at it too, so I just leave it to him.

  3. We just started using our grill again last weekend and it was wonderful! Sometimes you really just can’t beat the taste of food that’s been cooked on the grill. Though we use gas and not charcoal.

  4. Confession: I’ve BBQ’ed only twice and that’s only because I can’t physically lug that damn BBQ out of the garage nor can I physically open the lid – it’s so heavy! My spine is held together with metal and a prayer 🙂
    We haven’t had much of a season for BBQing yet but I can’t wait. This made my mouth water!

  5. I absolutely love this time of year. We are big grillers in my home. We love to use the BBQ for all types of meats, fish, and vegetables. My favorite is chicken and steak kabobs. I think a lot of people go wrong by flipping their food too many times and drying it out. Thanks for sharing these tips.

  6. Wow, I learned a lot from your post! I don’t grill. Maybe one day I will try my hand on grilling, and I will make sure I marinade everything before I start the grill. My husband is usually the griller when it comes to grilling. I am in charge of everything else, including cleaning. No surprise there.

  7. This looks like a great charcoal grill! My parents have transitioned to a gas grill but there’s something really nice about getting that charcoal flavor. This would be a nice grill to have for special occasions and as an alternate to our gas grill 🙂

  8. I’m so happy it’s grilling season. I plan to get a lot out of my grill this summer. Grilled food is the best.

  9. Great tips for grilling. We go to a friend’s house and have cookouts there and I will be sharing my new knowledge with our hosts!

  10. My favorite thing is to cut a whole chicken in half, sprinkle it with Meat Tenderizer, and seasoned salt. Let it rest while the coals are getting ready, then put it on the grill, close the lid, and walk away for 20 minutes. Go back and turn the 2 halves over, close the lid, and let it cook another 20 minutes. It turns out perfect every time.

  11. I love to bbq (I am from texas after all haha!). I love to barbeque chicken, ribs and STEAK! I love the tips you gave for bbqing! I’m going to try them!
