Watch the video above for a perfectly grilled, SPIRAL-cut wiener, that will keep your condiments, such as relish from falling off your dog and on to the ground.
Cleaning Your Grill… With an Onion
You may use a grill brush, but this is risk free… meaning, there’s no chance a piece of steel from your brush could end up in your food. Chances are you’ll be using an onion anyway, so take half of the onion, toss a little oil on it, grab your grill tongs and then rub it over the grates of your grill. Magic happens, a clean grill… helps with flavor too.
Hot Spot-Rest Spot
If you’re using a charcoal grill, once your coals are nice and hot, do not spread them out. Crazy, right? Wrong. Move more coals to one side of the grill for your searing and then have less coals on the opposite side, so your meat stays warm, but has a place to rest. Genius.
Aluminum Foil is Your Friend
If your food looks done on the outside, but you have no idea what’s happening on the inside of your prime cut piece of meat, wrap it up in aluminum foil… the inside continues to cook, while the outside won’t burn to a crisp… because nobody has every complained about biting into a succulent, moist piece of chicken.
