1. Clean your grill with a raw onion. The acid from the onion will act as a cleaning agent and season your food while grilling.
2. Always brush meat and vegetables with oil (preferably olive or coconut), which will allow the seasoning to stick to your meat or vegetables while grilling.
3. Grilling without cooking oil in your house? Try Italian dressing! It will serve as a great marinade and prevent your meat and veggies from sticking to the grill.
4. When grilling with charcoal, make sure all of the coals have turned grey/white before adding items to the grill. If grilling with coals that are still black, that is a great indicator that the lighter fluid has not burned off and your food will have a bitter taste.
5. Grill fish on top of lemon slices to give it a fresh citrus flavor and prevent sticking to the grill.
6. If you still haven’t mastered the art of grilling, try using indirect heat (lighting one side of the grill). This will allow you to have control over the heat. One side will be for searing and the other will act as an oven.
7. If you are grilling with wooden skewers, be sure to soak the skewers in water before grilling to prevent a fire. Also, use two skewers to prevent the meat from rotating while grilling.
