BBQ Tips and Recipes For Springtime

Springtime is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to start firing up your grill. The grilling experts at Modern Propane have compiled this list of need to know tips for barbecuing.
  •          Make sure your grill is clean. A dirty grill will lead to flair ups, unnecessary smoke and can add bad flavors to your food. This includes cleaning the food that has fallen into the grill, and grease deposits at the bottom. Taking the grates out and burner covers off will help you give your grill a thorough cleaning. You will definitely notice a difference.
  •          Remember that sugar burns at 265 degrees F. That is why when you are cooking foods with a sugary sauce or rub, to slowly cook them at a low temperature. If you cook them quickly it’ll cause them to burn and blacken prematurely.
  •          Use the correct temperature. Just because a grill has a max setting, doesn’t mean you have to use it. Thin cuts of pork and beef, including patties, should be cooked at high temperatures and quickly. This helps seal in the juices. Fish, chicken and vegetables should be grilled at a medium temperature. Any large cuts of meat, or whole poultry, should be cooked on a low temperature. Minding the temperature, and being patient, will improve the overall quality of the meal you are preparing.

If you are not sure what you are cooking, or looking for some ideas, we have found several places to find great BBQ recipes. This honeymustard grilled chicken recipe is a great meal with minimal preparation and takes about 35 minutes. These grilled scallops will be sure to please any seafood lover. These sweet and sour pork kabobs are delicious and ready in 25 minutes.
