Put your burgers on ice
Place an ice cube in the middle of a burger while it's cooking. You can also use a pat of butter. This will make your meat as juicy as can be!
Only use half the grill
Nobody likes overcooked, dry meat.
To keep your meat hot without losing all of its juices, only put charcoal on one side of your grill. Then when meat is ready, place it on the "cooler" side. Your your meat will stay hot without being overcooked.
Salt your fish
Soak your fish in salt water for 10 minutes before throwing it on the grill. This will prevent it from falling apart on top of the grill.
Spray on the apple juice
Pour some apple juice into a spray bottle and mist your meat while your grilling it.
This will enhance its flavor and keep it tender. Some people even use apple juice instead of BBQ sauce.
Grill in advance
Instead of running around like a chicken with your head cut off when your guests arrive, try pre-grilling your meat.
That way you can concentrate on your guests and not stress out while you're working the grill.
Cook your burgers up to four hours before your guests arrive. Grill them until they're almost ready and then throw them back on the grill when your guests arrive.
