When done right, grilled chicken is an excellent healthy meal. Especially if you can get it pulled right at 165 degrees and keep it nice and moist through out the cook. Grilling chicken is definitely a low-fat cooking method and this is even more true if you remove the skin. One thing to note about grilling chicken is the carcinogens that can be created when grilling. As noted by curetoday.com, there are actually two types…

If you love to grill like me, the snowy winter isn’t going to stop me from putting a deliciously grilled steak or burger on the table for dinner! While I’m slowly winterizing everything outside every fall the grill is about the only thing that will remain on the back deck every winter. Prior to getting into the 9 tips I’ve recently added an inexpensive green house to my back deck. This has been a great…

How to Season a Steak Before Reverse Searing It on the Big Green Egg? When cooked properly, steak is just awesome off of the Big Green Egg let alone any other propane / charcoal grill or even in a cast iron skillet on the stove top.

While freshly handmade burgers are always going to be better, grilling frozen burgers are a second best. This is especially true if you are looking for a fast cook on a week night.

Burgers, burgers, burgers. Who doesn’t love a good burger? They can be made in multiple sizes and multiple ways.

It was combined into one word known as spatchcock. This…

When cooking, grilling or even smoking, never rely on just how the food looks. If you have a thick piece of meat, like a steak, the exterior can look like it is done while the internal temperature is still not safe to eat. Always confirm that the meat has been cooked to its minimum safe temperature. If you don’t ensure that the food you are cooking has reached its minimum safe temperature prior to eating…

I live in Michigan and winter is right around the corner. Not only is winter right around the corner but you can never count on the forecast here. It will be calling for a sunny week and it will still rain all week. This makes planning for a cook out more challenging which is why many are curious if you can grill in the garage.
