A clean grill is a safe grill

Clean up grease periodically to reduce flare-ups.

Dress the part

Every grill master needs an apron and mitt. Not only for style, but also to protect against splatters.

Spray Down Flare-ups

Keep a spray bottle by your charcoal grill in
case of a grease fire. (Remember, don’t use a
spray bottle on gas grills!)

How to Cook with Charcoal

If you've got a charcoal grill, the trick is stacking the briquettes so the heat
is condensed. Once the charcoal has turned gray, spread them out and start cooking.

Still worried about the taste of your food? We’ll let you in on a little secret. Cheese!

In fact, cheese makes everything taste 78.7%* more delicious.

*Ok, we totally made that up, but it sure feels true.
