These grilling tips will help you step up your BBQ game.

1. Start Clean

Before diving into the grilling festivities, it's essential to start with a clean grill. UNSTICK BBQ Mats simplify this process by providing a non-stick surface that prevents food from sticking and makes cleanup a breeze. Simply lay the sheets on the grill grates, and you're ready to go.

2. Invest in Quality Tools

Good quality grilling tools can make a world of difference. Invest in a sturdy pair of tongs, a reliable meat thermometer, and of course, an Unstick BBQ Grill Mat to take your grilling to the next level.

3.  Experiment with Different Woods

Add extra flavour to your barbecue by using wood chips or chunks. Soak them in water for at least 30 minutes and then place them directly on the coals or in a smoker box for gas grills. Different woods impart different flavours: hickory and mesquite for strong, smoky flavours; apple and cherry for a sweeter, milder taste.

4. Heat Up Your Grill

Preheating your grill is essential for getting that perfect sear and ensuring even cooking. Allow at least 10-15 minutes for your grill to preheat, reaching the ideal cooking temperature for whatever you're grilling.

5. Oil-Free Convenience

Gone are the days of worrying about oiling the grill grates. UNSTICK BBQ Mats eliminate the need for excess oil, resulting in healthier, mess-free grilling without sacrificing flavour.

6. Use Two-Zone Cooking

Create two heat zones on your grill—one side for direct heat and the other for indirect heat. This allows you to sear your food over high heat and then finish cooking it gently over indirect heat, resulting in perfectly cooked food every time.

7. Effortless Flipping

Thanks to the non-stick surface of UNSTICK BBQ Grill Mats, flipping your food becomes a hassle-free task. Say goodbye to delicate items sticking to the grill grates—simply flip with ease and enjoy consistent cooking results.

8. Embrace Marinades and Rubs

Marinades and rubs are a simple yet effective way to add flavor to your BBQ creations. Experiment with different flavour combinations to find your signature marinade or rub, and don't be afraid to get creative!

9. Keep an Eye on the Temperature

Cooking times can vary depending on factors like the thickness of the meat and the temperature of your grill.  Use a meat thermometer to ensure your meats are cooked to perfection.

10. Embracing Practice and Improvement

Like any skill, mastering the art of grilling takes practice. With UNSTICK BBQ Mats by your side, you'll be well-equipped to hone your grilling skills and experiment with new techniques, ensuring that each BBQ session is better than the last.

Grilling is all about having fun and enjoying delicious food with friends and family.
