Grilling with Charcoal

Tip of the Day

I thought it would be a good idea to include some grilling basics since this time of year just screams cook on the grill!

If you’re planning to grill outdoors with charcoal you need to plan your time accordingly. You will need to light your charcoal 30 to 45 minutes before cooking.

When coals are covered in a light gray ash, you’re ready to grill.

Be sure to arrange your hot coals in a single layer so they just touch. Position your rack approximately 4-6 inches above the coals.

If you need to reduce the heat, spread coals farther apart using an oven mitt and long tongs.

If your recipe calls for indirect heat, using an oven mitt and long tongs, spread your coals to in half to each side.
