Grilling season is upon us and so is Gygi’s Grilling Gala. In all the excitement that comes with the Gala, I thought I’d share some grilling tips. If you own a grill, there are thee things that you absolutely must have:
A thermometer is a must! Without it how will you know when the meat is cooked? An instant-read thermometer is best. Rosle makes a good one. As much as I love the digital infrared thermometer, stay away from it when it comes to grilling. It only reads the surface temperature, not the internal temperature, which is what you want for meat.
Like a thermometer, a timer will help make your work easier. It will keep the guessing game out of grilling and help you not cross the line from done to over-done… I think we’ve all been there. I really love the vintage kitchen timers. They come in yellow, red or light blue. And did I mention they are magnetic?
A nice long-handled set of tongs really come in handy when dealing with a hot grilling surface. I really like this one by Chef’n. Bodum has a nice pair as well.
So that’s it. If you’ve got a grill and the three T’s, you’re ready to get going!
