Poke the patties a few times with a skewer so the burgers remain flat during grilling instead of turning into meatballs
Follow these tips for grilled salad perfection.
A spotless grate goes a long way toward preventing your salad ingredients from sticking. It also helps avoid imparting an unappetizing burnt flavor. The best time to clean the grate, using a long-handled brush, is when it’s piping hot: immediately after you’ve removed your food from the grill or after several minutes of preheating.
To tell when you’ve heated a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high, you should be able to hold your hand about 1 inch above the cooking grate for only 3 to 4 seconds before needing to pull it away from the intensity of the heat.
Oil be back:
Greasing your grill grate is another method for sidestepping any sticking. To do so, soak a wad of paper towel in oil, hold it with tongs, and rub it over the hot rack.
A high-sided grill basket is ideal for tossing around everything from cherry tomatoes and bell pepper slices to chunks of eggplant without the worry that they’ll slip through the grate to a fiery death.
