Have you had a chance to use the outdoor grills at Caliber at Hyland Village apartments? The weather hasn’t been great for cooking outside as of late, but summer is right around the corner so we wanted to get residents back to thinking about grilling. With that in mind, we’ve created a blog post to discuss some of the do’s and don’ts of grilling out by the pool at Caliber at Hyland Village.
In the blog post below, you’ll find a list of tips and tricks that you can use to become a grill master this season. You might make some mistakes at first, but as long as you clean up after yourself and leave a tidy space for the next griller, we won’t hold it against you! If you follow the advice in this blog post, we think you’ll be satisfied with your skills by the end of the summer. With that, let’s dive right into the post! When you’re done reading this week’s blog post, please be sure to share the link with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments near Hyland Village.
Do prepare the grill properly
You can prevent food from sticking to the grill by making sure your grill is hot and lubricated before you start cooking. We recommend running the brush wire over the grill before you cook and spreading plenty of vegetable oil on it as well. Oh, and remember to clean the grill of when you’re done so the next resident can use it without having to spend an hour cleaning!
Don’t cut your meat to see if it’s done
You don’t want to eat meat that isn’t done — obviously — but you also don’t want to eat dry meat. When you cut your meat open to check the middle, you lose a ton of the moisture that’s been heating up inside your meat. If you want to keep your meat juicy, you’ve got to learn to be able to tell if it’s done without cutting it.
Do set up different heat zones on your grill
The best grill masters cut their meat (or assemble their burgers) so that every piece is the same size. That way, everything cooks evenly. If you’re dealing with different sized pieces of meat, or different kinds of food, you’re going to want to set up different heat zones. Put the vegetables and smaller pieces of meat in the lower temperatures, and keep your thick chunks of meat in the high temperature zones. That way, everything will be done cooking at the same time!
Don’t forget to use seasonings
One thing to remember about grilling is that you lose a lot of juices and flavor to the grill. Don’t be afraid to add a ton of lemon juice, salt, garlic and even peppers if you’re into spicy food. It’s highly unlikely that you’ll add so much that your food is too rich. Grilled meats can handle a lot of flavor, so don’t head down to the grill area without a big plate full of your favorite seasonings!
