This should also be fun:

Everyone post your grilling tips and tips on how to make the grilling funner. Here are some of mine: -Migs

Meat grilling tips:

-Move the heat source, not the meat. This implies a cooking grate which rises and lowers as needed.
-Put the steaks on the grill 1 1/2" thick. Cook until blood sweats from upper surface, then turn over. (Don't keep turning over the meat)
-Use tongs to move the meat. Don't poke it.
-Meat should be served moist, pink and juicy in the middle. "Well done" is ruining meat.
-Never use table salt as it is too fine and thus too strong. Use coarser sea salt or salts specially made for grilling. Apply on top of meat as you put it on the grill. Add a bit (lot less) when you turn it over.
-The longer it takes the more juicy. This implies lower cooking temperature.
-Cook whole chunks of meat slowly, and remove slices from narrow end as needed. This yeilds better results than cooking individual slices.
-Several people eating small finger food sized pieces of meat promotes the friendly communion and makes the grilling last longer than individual portion sized plates which fill people up faster.
-Finger food sized pieces of meat on bits of baguette bread are meat eater utopia.

    Believe it or not I'm 68 yrs old and I'm listening to David Lee Roth sing "Jump" (Van Halen) and as soon as he's done I'm going to go check the Coor's and see if the label is blue. If it is I'm gonna fire up the egg to do some Brats for a late lunch. :)Then I'm gonna put on Pink Floyd and listen to Comfortably Numb. :whistle:

    Not hardley...the wife got me an I-Pod scrambler so I could load music and listen to the good stuff while I mow the yard. I am a music lover and when my kids were growing up thier friends use to think I was crazy listening to the same music they liked. The stuff i was kidding Migs about i downloaded from my srambler to a CD so I could listen to it in my pick-up. :P
