When grilling any type of meat, poultry or other foods remember moisture retention is a must:
Sear - to burn or scorch the surface of something with a sudden, intense heat. Brown food quickly at a high temperature so that it will retain its juices in subsequent cooking.
Smoked - cure or preserve meat or fish by exposure to smoke.
Braise - to fry food lightly and then stew it slowly in a closed container.
Roasting - to cook food (especially meat) by prolonged exposure to heat in an oven or over a fire.
Timing is everything. How long do you soak the meat in that marinade? It depends on the marinade, but check out these general guidelines:
FISH: 15 minutes to 2 hours
CHICKEN: 30 minutes to 12 hours
BEEF: 2 to 24 hours
PORK: 2 to 24 hours
LAMB: 2 to 24 hours
Take four metal or soaked wooden skewers and poke them right through the whole onion, roughly ? inch per slice. Cut onion between skewers into four thick slices. The skewers will help keep the slices neatly together while grilling.
Peaches, nectarines and plums get a deep, caramel-like flavor when cooked on the grill.
Here's a few hints for grilling fruit:
Bring some class to the grilling scene and get to know what wines go with that great grilled food.
Prosecco wine is the Italian version of France's Champagne, prosecco is one of the world's food-friendliest wines. The inexpensive bubbly pairs as well with upscale pork roast as it does with hot dogs and potato salad.
Chianti Classico is based on the Sangivese grape. Its bold, leathery flavors and medium level of acidity make it the perfect partner for grilled steak.
Pinot Grigio is a light and refreshing wine. During dinner, match it with grilled shrimp or spicy seafood.
Grilling times in recipes are based on 70°F (20°C) weather and little to no wind. Allow more time on cold, windy days, or even for higher altitudes. Allow less time for warmer weather.
Large or thicker pieces of meat will require more cooking time per pound than smaller or thinner pieces.
Foods on a crowded cooking grate will require more cooking time than just a few foods.
