Philadelphia, PA - Preparing low-fat meats on the barbecue can be a real pain. Lean meats like salmon come with extremely low-fat content and tend to stick to the grill grates. High-fat meats like steak and hamburger are packed with fat tend not to adhere to the grill, unlike low-fat meats.
One technique to make your barbecue grill non-stick is to spray it with a non-stick spray or oil the grill in advance. However, do you know that you could also use a potato?
Making Your BBQ Non-Stick
So, you neglected to purchase a non-stick spray, not a problem. All you need is a potato and a fork. Here's the way it's done:
- Fire up the grill to your sought-after temperature.
- Slice a potato in half.
- Place the potato on a fork or skewer, leaving the inside of the potato exposed.
- Now rub the exposed center of the potato on the barbecue grates. Making certain to cover the entire cooking surface.
- It is just that easy!
Don't have a potato at your disposal; you could also use onion or lemon. Keep in mind that utilizing onions or lemons will help flavor the meat; in some cases, this is great, but it might also incorporate undesirable flavors into the meal.
