Be a barbeque star with these outdoor grill purchasing and usage tips

By Cristian Stan Subscribe to RSS | August 12th 2012 | Views:

If you are thinking about getting an outdoor grill, one of the main aspects that you should consider is how well it will withstand the various weather conditions and the fact that it will be outdoors for a longer period of time. When you compare prices, make sure you do it along with the price of an outdoor cover for your grill. If you want to maintain your grill in a good condition for as long as possible and extend its life to the maximum, you should definitely buy a cover as well.

Even if it is not always necessary to buy a sturdy outdoor grill, you most certainly don’t want your grill to tip over in the yard on a windy day. However, this is a potential issue with mostly charcoal grills that are sometimes made of rather flimsier components. Also keep in mind that charcoal grills which are lightweight, will most probably burn out quite rapidly.

If your purchased grill includes cast-iron grids, it is recommended to season them prior of its first usage to get a rustproof, nonstick finish. Use hot, soapy water and a rigid brush to wash it. Once the grids are dry, use melted vegetable shortening to rub them. Next, put it on the upper rack of the oven and bake the grids for one hour (at 350 degrees). Leave it on the oven and let it cool completely. When they are cooled down, you can pit it back right on the grill or store them in a dry place without covering them.

Generally it is considered that charcoal grills offer remarkable flavors, but there are gas grills that allows you to make use of hardwood wood and lump charcoal chips to obtain that unique barbeque flavor. Different fuel types means different cooking time, so you should have plenty wood chips to ensure you will not run out of your flavor enhancer supply.

For a truly memorable summer, make sure you follow the 5 outdoor grilling tips:

1. Purchase an outdoor grill that has a sufficiently large cooking surface to house your biggest anticipated use.

2. To ensure good weathering and long-lasting performance buy a grill made of stainless-steel and with cast-iron grates.

3. To obtain those unique flavors while grilling, make sure you use wood chips.

4. When you have thick meat, it is recommended to use instant meat thermometer and indirect grilling.

5. Each use should be followed by a thorough cleaning of your outdoor grill.

During the summer months, your outdoor grill will be frequently used by you and your family. Thus, it is important for the grill to be large and hot enough for most family events.
