Don’t squash the burger patty 🍔 Pressing the patty flat causes the meat to dry out as the juices are cooked out. Let your patty cook through without pressing it down to enjoy a juicy, tender burger full of natural flavour!
BBQ everything 🌽 Grill vegetables like zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, corn, and potatoes alongside your protein to save time.
Watch the clock 🕒 Our recipe developers work hard to determine the optimal cooking time for the best results. Avoid overcooking or undercooking your meat. To do this, follow the instructions and use a meat thermometer to ensure that your protein is thoroughly cooked.
Cook inside & out 🍖 Unlike steak or burgers, chicken and other proteins need to be thoroughly cooked inside. A covered grill creates a sealed, oven-like environment that surrounds and cooks your food on all sides. If your grill doesn’t have a lid, use an upside-down disposable foil pan or create a tent with tin foil.
Turn up the heat ♨️ Preheat your grill 15 to 25 minutes before you start cooking. This will ensure it reaches the right temperature and for a clean cooking surface. It’s important to note that a properly heated grill sears foods on contact, keeps the insides moist and helps prevent sticking. It also creates improved flavours through caramelization without overcooking the inside.
Your grill should be:
- 400-450°F for high
- 350-400°F for medium-high
- 300-350°F for medium
- 250-300°F for low heat
