Everyone enjoys grill food, but only a few know how to prepare it properly… What is the ultimate secret to making the best grill dish? The answer is preparation. You must prepare a large number of ingredients for a successful grill party. As a result, if you do not plan ahead of time, everything will quickly devolve into chaos. Let’s start with the most important component: proteins. Except for hamburger meat, which must be seasoned just before grilling, you must season your meat at least 1 hour before cooking. A light seasoning is sufficient, but you must season both sides.





Pour the marinade and your vegetables in a zippered plastic bag. The bag lets you easily turn the vegetable during the marinating time, which can be an hour at room temperature, or uIf you don’t have any vegetables, your grill will never be perfect. They are great to grill, but you must marinate them to give them flavor and shine. You don’t need to make a complicated marinade; a simple one will suffice. A little soya oil or peanut oil, salt, pepper, fresh Thai basil, cilantro, soy sauce, fish sauce, ginger and garlic, chili, and lime juice and your veggies are ready after  2 hours in the fridge. Use the same marinade for the meat, but don’t marinate it for more than 3 hours, as the acid in the marinade will begin to break down the flesh, turning it mushy.





When the preparation is complete, it is time to fire up the grill. You’ll need to set up two heat zones on your grill: one high and one medium. If you want to sear your meat perfectly, make sure it’s completely dry before putting it on the grill.



It will be a little more difficult if you cook some chicken. You want beautiful grill marks, but you also don’t want it to dry out. Place the chicken on a high heat zone to get those marks, then move it to a medium heat zone to finish cooking. If you enjoy grilling fish, make sure to coat both the fish and the grill with oil to keep them from sticking.




Last but not least, save the vegetables for last because they cook quickly and you don’t want to burn them, right?

Tips: Move the meat as little as possible or it will break into pieces, especially when grilling fish or meat for burgers.

Never cut your meat on the grill because you will lose all of its delicious juice.

Inspect your meat with your fingers without pressing it. Allow your grilled meat to rest for a few minutes before cutting it. This will keep it moist and delicious.

Finally, invest in quality grilling tools; they will make your life much easier!
