Both experienced grillers and those who fear the flame can appreciate a few pointers to make their meals even more delicious.

The flavor difference from using a quality salt and pepper grinder can be seen in the results. When using a salt grinder remember to use dry, course salts like a rock salt.

Watch the temp

No one wants undercooked or over cooked food. When the beverages are flowing and the conversation is gregarious, hovering over the grill can be a bore. Luckily several thermometers offer connections to your smart phone. For example, iDevices offer a grill thermometer that gives alerts when the food is at a particular temperature. No more excuses for food being incorrectly cooked.

Toast the food
