General Grilling Tips

*When I (Kurt) grill over open fire on my Big Green Egg, I like to have the coals mostly in the center.

*Don't put the meat on until the coals are hot!!

*Start the meat right over the hot spot, then turn it shortly and finish over the "cool" spot along the outside of the grill.  Honestly though, it just takes practice and doing it to get it right.

*Don't stick the meat with a fork - you lose too many juices.

*Low and slow on the heat and the cooking - a slightly leaner grass-fed steak will dry out if you put it over a blow torch setting on your gas grill.

*Use tongs - don't press your hamburgers with a spatula.  You lose too many juices.
