Tips & tools

To keep things from falling through, getting burnt, etc.

  • Utilize foil, grill baskets or skewers (soak wooden ones in water for 20 minutes before using).
  • Place foods off to side of the grill or on its upper rack for less direct heat, slower cooking.
  • Faster cooking veggies should go on separate kabobs from things that take longer to cook.
