Up your grill skills

Be your own grill master. Click on your seasonal faves to learn 3 keys to mastering your BBQ: visual cue for doneness, ideal internal temperature and explode a BBQ myth holding you back from grilling greatness.

Grills have their own quirks and hot spots, the weather outdoors is unpredictable, lids flip open and closed – these factors shift cooking temperature and time. Backyard grilling is supposed to be fun and not too exacting. Here are a few top tips to get your best grilling experience:

Clean and grease the grill
Make middle temperatures your default
Cook over flames or indirect heat?
Use a probe-style instant-read thermometer
Let meats and fish rest after cooking

To keep food from sticking, scrape down the grill, brush or spray it with vegetable oil, then turn on the BBQ. Oiling a hot grill presents the danger of flare-ups as you work.


For the meat lovers

The flavour and aroma of grilled meats is hard to beat. Enjoy them simply seasoned with salt and pepper - or dressed up with these easy DIY sauces and burger toppers.

Salsa verde

Ideal for grilled beef, poultry or sausages.

  • In large bowl, mix 2 cups (500 mL) each roughly chopped parsley and cilantro, 1/2 cup (125 mL) olive oil, juice of half lemon, 2 coarsely chopped garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each dried oregano and cumin, and pinch of hot pepper flakes.
  • Using immersion blender, blitz until coarse paste. (If using blender or food processor to chop ingredients, stir in oil by hand at end.) Drizzle salsa over grilled meats and enjoy!

Soy good sweet and savoury sauce

Terrific with pork, kabobs and pork sausages.

  • In a small pot, combine 1/4 cup (60 mL) honey, 1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce, 2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice, 2 tbsp (30 mL) mirin, walnut-sized knob fresh ginger (thickly sliced).
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for about 2 min to slightly thicken. Spoon over meats for a tasty umami kick.
