Tips for the Grill

Planning to put burgers on the grill this weekend?

We found some helpful tips that will impress your guests.

Follow these tips for that perfectly char-grilled juicy burger.

  • Use beef that is no leaner than 85%. Meat with a higher fat content will be juicier and more flavorful. But be aware, patties from higher fat meat will shrink more when they cook. 

 

  • Add just about anything you like to your burger mixture, such as Fresh or dried herbs and spices.

 

  • Don't combine salt into the mixture, especially if you're not going to grill the patties right away. Salt will extract moisture from the meat, leaving you with dry burgers. Instead, sprinkle each burger with salt right before you put it on the grill.

 

  • Leave the meat mixture (or patties) in the refrigerator for several hours to allow all the flavors to mingle.

 

  • To form patties, wet your hands a little to keep the meat from sticking to them.

 

  • Don't form patties too thick or too thin. A 3/4-inch thick patty is ideal.

 

  • To keep patties from swelling in the middle, make small indentations in the center.

 

  • Medium-low to medium heat is best.

 

  • Keep the lid closed while cooking; it shortens cooking time and keeps burgers moist.

 

  • It's hard to resist, but try not to flatten your burgers with the spatula. It squeezes out flavorful juices.

 

  • Cook ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

 

Bonus Tip: How to keep grilled burgers moist. A hot, hot grill achieves just the right char and paints the perfect grill marks on burgers, but the fierce flames can also dry them out. Graham Elliot, a judge on MasterChef, has a pretty cool solution: hide a small ice cube in center of the patty! That's right, the cube melts as the burger grills, and keeps the meat nice and moist.

Be Safe!

Fireworks Safety Guide

  • Never ignite devices in a container
  • Do not try to re-light or handle malfunctioning fireworks
  • Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding

  • Never use illegal fireworks

 

Sparklers Are Dangerous

Every year, young children can be found along parade routes and at festivals with sparklers in hand, but sparklers are a lot more dangerous than most people think.

 

Sparklers burn at about 2,000 degrees – hot enough to melt some metals. Sparklers can quickly ignite clothing, and children have received severe burns from dropping sparklers on their feet. According to the National Fire Protection Association, sparklers alone account for more than 25% of emergency room visits for fireworks injuries. For children under 5 years of age, sparklers accounted for nearly half of the total estimated injuries.

Consider using safer alternatives, such as glow sticks, confetti poppers or colored streamers.
