Girlling Tips for Colder Weather

Days are passing and it’s getting colder. Good news—you are at the game.  Bad news? There’s nothing good to eat at the stadium.  Solutions?  Tailgate!  Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you have to put the grill away… Here are some cold weather grilling tips to ensure that you and your food aren’t the laughing stock of the arena…

  1. #1 Get yourself a charcoal chimney starter…
    A chimney starter is a metal cylinder with a charcoal grate mounted inside. Unlit charcoal is placed into the top of the cylinder and newspaper is placed in the bottom, under the grate. When the newspaper is lit, it burns and lights the charcoal above. That way, it’s ready when you are.
  2. #2 When it comes to meat, be brave!
    Braise a pork shoulder at home, and simply reheat indirectly (have the coals only on one side of the grill, and place the roast on the opposite side…you are guaranteed to impress!)
  3. #3 Bring up the heat.
    It’s that much colder outside. Raise the heat in the grill by 25%!
  4. #4 Bring gloves!
    When you can’t feel your hands, chances are you can’t feel how hot the meat is.
