Here's The Secret To Grilling Perfect Burgers

  Here's The Secret To Grilling Perfect Burgers Game changer.

This is the summer I grill something different. Maybe you can relate. I’ve always thought of grilling less as a means of cooking, and more as a set roster of dishes. How do I break out of my routine when, like many of us, it’s so easy to fall back on what works?

Let’s forget about ribs and rib eyes.

This is the summer I grill something different.

Maybe you can relate.

I’ve always thought of grilling less as a means of cooking, and more as a set roster of dishes. For big gatherings, I fire up my “famous” ribs, and everyone asks how they get so crispy, while remaining fall-apart tender. (Hint: Slow-cook in the oven, then shellack with sauce over a live fire.)

For good friends, I splurge on a dry-aged rib eye and I then brag about the deeply seared, perfectly medium-rare finished product like a dad talks proudly about his child. Except I’m afraid I’m guilty of sharing photos of my rib eyes even more often than I do of my 10-year-old son.

The Perfect Way To Grill Chicken

  The Perfect Way To Grill Chicken Never underestimate the power of a marinade.If you're a planner, start marinating your chicken the night before you're gonna grill. If you're lazy (like us!), set aside 20 minutes before you grill for the flavors to start to meld. A good marinade has four components: acid (like lemon juice or balsamic vinegar), one key seasoning (dijon, fresh or dry herbs), fat (olive, sesame, or veg oil), sweetness (we always go for honey when grilling), and last but certainly not least, SALT. Don't skimp or you'll regret it. We love the marinade on this California Grilled Chicken.

We’ve also got a number of seafood recipes for the grill that will show you how it’s done. Whether you’re fancying salmon or a whole wriggling octopus, these recipes are sure to break you out of any burgers ‘n brats rut .

We have a pretty standard kitchen stove and a grill outside. Also, if you're not familiar with John Thorne, author of Simple Cooking, I'd recommend you check his stuff out . More on the food-writing side than strictly recipes , but his recipes are really good.

How do I break out of my routine when, like many of us, it’s so easy to fall back on what works?

Best-Ever Barbecued Ribs

Well, first, I’ll riff on what I already know. I recently came upon some lamb ribs at a local farm stand. I took the same approach as BA’s ultimate ribs, seasoning them with a basic dry rub, and pre-cooking them in the oven before finishing them on a medium-hot grill (beware of flare-ups; they’re plenty fatty). Because I had no pomegranate syrup, as our recipe by Seamus Mullen calls for, I simmered some honey with smashed garlic cloves and a pinch of chili flakes. When the nicely charred ribs came off the grill, I painted them with the garlic-infused honey. Sweet, smoky, crispy, meaty. Wow.

And because I know I’m adept at developing a quality sear on a steak while hitting the just-right doneness, why not apply that touch to something other than a rib eye? I loved the article in our June/July issue on grilling cuts of meat we typically braise. In winter months, I’m all about pork shoulder and brisket, simmered slowly a Dutch oven. But did you know can take either cut and throw it on your grill?

For the grilled brisket, senior food editor Chris Morocco freezes the meat for about 45 minutes, which allows him to thinly slice it, about ⅛" thick. Into an Asian-inspired marinade it goes, a quick turn on a hot grill, and then it’s finished with a scallion peanut sauce. Brisket like you’ve never had before.

Pork Shoulder Steaks with Grilled Mustard Greens

As for the pork shoulder, it means asking a butcher to carve the boneless cut into ¾"-thick steaks. Because it’s seamed with so much intramuscular fat, it yields an addictively flavorful and juicy steak. I couldn’t stop nipping at it when senior associate food editor Molly Baz was developing the recipe in the Test Kitchen.

This Simple Grilling Hack will Change Your Life

Finally, because you can’t survive on meat alone (I think?), I’m going to diversify my vegetable game. On a recent episode of the BA Foodcast about trying to lead a more vegetable-forward life, food director Carla Lalli Music got me all excited to grill cabbage. Who knew? We have a recipe for charred purple cabbage with a cooling mint raita and cucumbers. It’s officially now on my to-grill list.
