Grilling Tips

summergrilltips
  • Don’t forget: keep raw meats in the refrigerator until cooking time.
  • Keep raw meats separated from cooked foods, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure that you have cooked your meat to the proper temperature.
  • Trim excess fat from your meet before grilling to reduce the risk of flare-ups.
  • Add sauces at the end of grilling to prevent burning

Americans eat 7 billion hot dogs during peak season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. That’s 818 hot dogs per second. Nearly 6,000 were consumed in the time it’s taken you to read this far.

Don’t forget that all meats continue to cook even after they are removed from heat. You may want to pull it off a few minutes before the meat has reached its desired “doneness,” as the meat will still cook in the time it takes to serve.
