When the heat rises, who wants to heat up the kitchen for even a minute? Instead of suffering, break out the grill and cook every bit of your meal outdoors! You can get suprisingly tasty results with a little fancy grillwork.
We have compiled a list of recipes that will take you from hors d'oeuvres to dessert, and everything is made right on the grill. A few tips for grilling a complete meal:
Know your heat. Not all grills heat evenly and this is actually to your advantage. Once you know where the hottest and coolest parts of the grill are located, you can cook a variety of foods at the same time and make your cookout even more efficient.
Use all the heating elements to your advantage. Try turning down one side of the grill for cooler temperatures (all things being relative. It's not exactly cool anywhere on the grill)and way up on the other end for direct heat/searing. Make your grill multi task and get dinner on the table fast.
Try making dessert on the grill as well. The final course can be grilling to perfection as you are busy enjoying the entree. Isn't grilling fun?
