In honor of National BBQ Month, here are some grilling tips from The Companion Group, courtesy Steven Raichlen.
1. Always light your gas grill with the lid open. Failure to do so could result in an explosion.
2. Oil your grill grate before and after use to prevent food from sticking.
3. Never press on a burger with the back of a spatula. All the flavorful juices will be lost to the fire. Avoid stabbing food with a barbecue fork: the juices will leak out. Use long-handled tongs or a spatula to turn or move food.
