On the Road – Grilling Tips | VIDEO | Kroger


[ ♪♪ ] – Hey, I’m Mike.
– And I’m Dean. And we’re grilling our way
across the country. While on the road, we’ve come
across some pretty great tips – for grilling better…
– and easier. Here are a few of our favorites. Starting your grill. If you’re using briquettes,
try a charcoal chimney. It starts quickly and lights
the charcoal evenly. And once the coals are going, be strategic on where
you put them. If they’re all on one side,
it lets you decide whether you want direct heat
like a stove or indirect heat like an oven,
all in the same grill. And it’s always handy to have
an extra pair of tongs to move the charcoal, so you
don’t get any ash on the food. And before you put food
on the grill, rub half an onion
on the hot grate. It’ll clean the surface
and leave a hint of onion. Now time for food. If you’re making kabobs,
be sure to soak wood skewers in water for 30 minutes;
it’ll keep them from burning and leaving a harsh taste
on your food. Same goes for cedar planks
that some people use for fish. This one’s great. If you’re having a party,
throw some fresh rosemary on the grill or straight
on the charcoal. Not only will it make
the whole area smell great, it’s a natural mosquito
repellent. And once you’re done,
a scrunched up ball of foil works great to clean the grill. Just use tongs or wait
until it’s cooled. There are as many tips
as there are ways to barbecue, so get out to your grills
and start discovering your own. We’re back on the road for
the Red, White & Barbecue event.
