Fire + Meat = Food

This is the time of year when ordinarily ordinary people are seduced by the pyromania of the backyard grill. Many have been known to rummage frantically through refrigerators full of unidentifiable leftovers in search of some new item to incinerate. To help you participate in this pastime, we offer a few tips and some proven “sure fire” recipes.

There are many types of grills, but the basic categories are charcoal and gas. The choice is a matter of personal preference, but bear in mind that charcoal is more apt to flare up, producing out-of-control flames that can scorch your food and create a fire hazard. A little charcoal lighter fluid will enhance this effect.

The first thing you need to know is that properly lit grills are hot. (See manufacturer’s instructions.) Use caution.

Despite the heat, it takes time to properly cook the food. To avoid the temptation of repeatedly poking and prodding the items on the grill, it’s helpful to have something entertaining to do during the cooking process. I recommend Cheez-Its.
