  • Grillmasters unite

    If you are a grillmaster (even if it's self appointed) share your secrets here!

    Cooking over open flame is about the only way I know.

    I can tell you that the #1 secret to becoming a grillmaster is marinade. It will take anything to a whole new level! Of course, there are a million different marinades out there so you have to know what you're going for.

    And then there's the age long debate; charcoal or propane?

    I like the taste of charcoal but I use propane at the moment because of convenience. When I have the money and room though, I want to get a Big Green Egg. They're supposed to be the shhitttteeeee. :)

        The most important thing is getting quality meat and quality ingredients. Cuts from the grocery store just won't cut it. Plus don't be cheap on any of the ingredients, no matter how insignificant they may seem. It all makes a difference.

              i don't know how anyone could vote propane for any reason other than convenience/hoa rules.

              the other secret is how long you grill the meat. anyone who grills a burger until it's gray all the way through as a matter of course should never be allowed near a spatula again. the standard cook time should always be medium, with variation on request. this also applies to steak.

                Hank Hill talked me into propane. Propane is just so quick and easy you have your food in no time and it still tastes great.

                  That is actually how I like my burgers. Grey with just a twinge of pink still in it, nice and medium well. You would hate eating meat with my dad, he likes to cook the stuff until it is dark & black. That is actually the reason Im not a big steak fan, my dad would always make it soooo well done that it turned me off from it for a long time.

                    Yeah, you gotta preheat the grill so that when you put the meat on, the heat sears it and seals the juices in.

                      see, and that's cool. i understand some people like the charcoal literally adhered to the meat. but it's just obnoxious when people cook everything that way without taking into account that the vast majority of the grilling public likes it some degree of medium (from med-well to med-rare, but regardless, still somewhat pink).

                          another rule of grilling (actually, eating grilled food prepared by someone else):

                          if i've marinated the meat, taste it before you add A1 (or whatever condiment) or don't female-dog at me because it doesn't taste right.

                          otoh: if it's just a burger and all it's got is some pepper on it, by all means, do whatever the hell you want.

                            Searing actually doesnt keep juices in.

                              Yes it does, but even more important is letting the meat rest.
                              When I eat, it is the food that is scared.
