Tips for Grill Masters

  • Use high-quality wood pellets. Make sure the pellets are food-grade. If you use pellets that are designed for non-food purposes, they may contain binders and glue.
  • Season your grill before using it. Use a high smoke point oil such as peanut oil, refined avocado oil, or canola oil.
  • Clean your grill regularly. Don’t use a wire brush because fragments of metal from the brush will break off and get in your food. Instead, use a wooden grill cleaner or the cut side of half of an onion or potato.
  • Don’t overcrowd the grill.
  • Let meat rest before slicing and serving.
