Grilling in the Springtime

Spring… the snow is melting, the birds are chirping, and the grill is heating. Springtime is around the corner which means there will soon be an abundance of produce available to take your grilling to the next level.

Vegetables cook quickly and delicious with just the right hint of smoke from the grill. Add a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper and just the right amount of oil to keep them drying and sticking to the grill.

A helpful hint to remember is that although vegetables cook fairly quickly, they all vary in cooking times. Some take about a minute or two while denser vegetables, like potatoes, will take longer.

An easy way to cook a variety of vegetables is by putting them on a skewer. This will also prevent smaller vegetables from falling through. If you chop larger vegetables up, take into consideration cooking time. Relatively larger pieces will take longer than smaller pieces.Premium 4 Burner Grill

Check your grills hot spots. “And how do I do that?” Well, I am glad you asked! Cover your grill grates with slices of white bread and run your grill on high. After a couple of minutes, cut the heat and turn the slices over. The more toasted slices indicate the hotter spots. Now you’ll be able to place food on your grill accordingly.
