As grilling masters ourselves, we at Arizona Propane want to ensure your backyard barbeque goes off without a hitch, regardless of whether you’re just starting out or you’re already a grilling master yourself by providing you with tips on what we have learned through much trial and error (which is the only way to learn).
Tip #1 – Prepare Your Grill
The first tip for making any backyard barbeque successful is to ensure your grill is ready to go. This includes making sure its placement is in an area free from flammable objects, such as a tree, and to ensure your propane bottle has enough fuel left.
There is nothing worse than running out of propane, in the midst of grilling, which is why you can count on Arizona Propane to provide you with affordably priced, effective fuel and accessories.
You’ll also want to ensure that its surface it clean and ready to go! You can do this by turning on the heat and using a wire brush to clean on and between your grills slates. We further recommend applying a bit of oil to the surface before grilling with a soft brush.
Tip #2 – Prepare Your Food before Turning On the Grill
If you marinating your food, it’s often best to do so an hour, or 24 hours before you begin to cook. If you’re making kabobs they can, and often do, take some time to prepare. That’s why following this tip will help to ensure you don’t run out of propane before you even get your foot out the door.
Tip #3 – Always Use the Correct Temperature
How many of you have set your grill at its max temperature, just to watch it burn? We’ll admit that we must certainly have. So, just because your grill has a max temperature, doesn’t mean it’s always the best temperature for your backyard barbeque.
Thin cuts of meat, including hamburger patties, should be quickly cooked at a high temperature in order to seal in the juices. Poultry, seafood and vegetables should be cooked at a medium temperature. Any thick cuts of meat, including steaks and whole chickens, should be cooked at a low temperature.
