Understanding Basic Grilling Safety Tips

bbq grillA barbeque pork recipe can be one of the most difficult things to perfect. It isn’t just time spent working on the flavors, or figuring how hot for how long-it’s also trying to master the different subtle ways that wood, sauce, meat and presentation can work together to make a mind-blowing bbq pork recipe. Naturally, the most important part of barbeque is the meat. Different meats bring different things to the table-beef tastes rich and full, deer tastes a little wild and pork is…indescribable. One of the hardest things to decide is whether you want to focus on a certain cut of meat or learn the niceties of several. Grilling safety is, or at least should be, a vital step in having a fun and safe summer meal outdoors.

Safely grilling involves multiple points of awareness, but the first and main safety concern for grilling safety should be fire safety. Fire safety while grilling can be accomplished much in the same way as cooking safely within the home. Just as one would not leave a hot stove top on, or leave food cooking on the stove or in the oven without supervision, so too should a person who is grilling food outside remain with the food at all times while it is being cooked. A fire extinguisher should be on hand at all times to put out any flames that get out of hand, just like there is a fire extinguisher in most kitchens for this same precaution. But not all fire safety precautions from the kitchen can simply be carried over to the outside grill without additional fire safety measures.

Then there comes the hard part. Granted, it takes a long time and a lot of work to finally get the meat to where it is perfect. But then what do you do? With barbeque, cooking the meat isn’t even half the battle. That’s where the real work starts. Discovering the perfect balance of ingredients for sauce-regardless of what the ingredients are-is what takes the most time in perfecting barbeque. Whether you cook it in a pit for the day or throw the cut on the grill in your back yard the meat right, seasoning, like having a wondrous dry rub or Chef David’s Gourmet Pork Dust, is what will make your cooking stand out from all the rest.

Charcoal grills operate by lighting and heating a grill by lighting charcoal briquettes. These briquettes can get very hot and one of the main dangers is trying to douse already lit charcoal with lighter fluid. When most people start looking to take their barbeque to the next level, one of the first things they do is to go to the store, pick their favorite meat and a good sauce. Most people try to enhance the overall flavor of their meat once they’ve gotten it to the point they want it to be, and this is probably one of the best approaches to take. Chef David Gourmet Pork Dust is one of the very finest ways to improve bbq pork. Remembering fire safety while manning a gas grill is equally as important as when a person is using a charcoal grill. Gas fueled grills will require a person to be knowledgeable about how to use their gas canister or tank, how to operate the controls of the grill, and how to clear the lines of any clogs should something become lodged in the gas lines. By remembering safety at all times while grilling this summer, a family can enjoy their summer fun even after the activities of the day end and the food gets cooking.
