Tips for summer grilling from Dantanna's Tavern

Posted: Updated:
Bill Hogan with Dantanna's Tavern stopped by Good Day Atlanta on Wednesday to share some summer grilling tips.

You can watch the full segment by clicking on the video above

Tips for Summer Grilling:
- Remove meat from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before cooking to bring it to room temperature.  This will help the meat cook more evenly.
- Get the grill hot.  Food sticks to a cold grill and will take too long to cook.
- Oil the grill.  This will help prevent food from sticking and help make nice grill marks
- If marinating, let the meat marinate overnight, and don’t let an excessive amount of marinade get onto the grill.
- If saucing (i.e. with barbeque sauce), sauce the meat right before it comes of the grill so the sauce does not have time to burn
- Use tongs or a spatula to turn the meat.  Do not pierce it with tongs as this will let the juices flow out.  Move the meat as little as possible.
- Let the meat rest for a few minutes after it cooks.  This will allow the juices to flow back into the meat and make for a juicier steak.
