As part of my partnership with McCormick Grill Mates we (that’s all you readers and me) are supposed to come up with a “True Rule of Grilling”. I know many of you are of the “low and slow” crowd; play along with us and have some fun, as the best entry will be featured on the Grill Mates’ Facebook page for all the world to see. Or at least all the Facebook world…
To start the discussion, I would like to suggest the following “True Rule of Grilling”.
Petroleum products belong in your car’s gas tank and don’t do a thing for the taste of your food. Use the lighter fluid or self-starting charcoal to start trash piles on fire and keep them away from your grill.
So that we don’t have any duplication of effort, here are the “True Rules” posted so far:
- You shall be a decent host and serve guests the well done meat they’ve asked for. But be a great griller and offer them a taste of your perfect steak.
- A griller shall never cut a steak to see if it’s done and risk losing juicy flavor. A quick press of the thumb will reveal it it’s grilled to perfection.
- The griller and their grill share a bond that none can, nor should, ever break.
- A Griller will keep grilled fish together and tasty by leaving the skin on, glazing it with a wash of egg white seasoned with Grill Mates, or wrapping it in foil before grilling.
- The rib-eye stands as the most highly prized amongst cuts of beef. But all beef is best when flavored with Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning.
- To reach the flavor peak of grilled pork, grillers shall set the fires blazing under the favorite cut of all – ribs!
- Grilling peppers and onions alongside savory sausage ups the flavor ante. But to truly go all-in, a griller will simmer the sausage in beer before it hits the grill.
- Master the art of the most-excellent hamburger to take that first step toward true grilling nirvana.
- When you’re grilling for your boss and all you serve is hot dogs, they;; know it’s time to raise the steaks by serving you a promotion.
So time for all three of you readers to weigh in with your true rule of grilling. Or feel free to expand on the evils of petroleum products on grilled food. Oh, and there are still a few days left to enter our contest.
