Genius grilling hacks for the ultimate BBQ experience

Easy campfire starter

If you want an easy way to start a campfire, grab an empty egg carton and fill it with charcoal bricks. It saves you a mess and it's really easy to light the carton. Once you do that, the charcoal starts.

Spiral-cut your hotdogs

If you use a spiral cut on your hotdogs, they will cook through better and taste amazing. The grooves are perfect for holding condiments.

Enhance your food's flavor with herbs

If you want your grilled food to taste even better, then try cooking with herbs. Herbs will impact the flavor of your food and which types of meats and veggies each pairs best with.

Clean your grill with a ball of aluminum

Scrunch up a ball of aluminum foil and put it between your tongs. Then use it to scrub the grill rack before it cools down. All the sticky stuff should come off.

Or try using an onion

If you don't want to use a ball of aluminum, you can also try using an onion. The onion contains moisture and acidity which helps to break down residue on your grill and remove it. While you're at it, you can also try rubbing your grill grate with an onion before you cook; this can prevent food from sticking in the first place.

Poach your sausages before you grill them

Poaching your sausages is a great first step to take before grilling out. This will help to keep them moist and will also get rid of unwanted fat. It ensures they cook evenly as well.

Cook your fish on top of citrus slices

If you are tired of your fish sticking to your grill rack, then place some citrus slices directly on top of your grill and place the fish on top of the slices. This will prevent sticking and infuse your fish with extra flavour.

Boil your meat before you grill it

Some days are just too hot to stand over a grill. If you want to cut down on your grilling time, you can brine and boil your meats first.

Put a skillet on the grill

If you happen to own a cast-iron skillet, you shouldn't leave it inside when you grill! It is perfect for distributing heat and is great for foods that tend to fall apart like fish.

Grill lemons

If you don't want to cook fish on lemons, but you do want to squeeze lemon juice over your fish when they're finished cooking, try grilling them first. This imparts some extra flavor to the lemons. While you are at it, you can use the extra grilled lemons to make lemonade or margaritas—they taste unbelievable!

Use two skewers to keep food from slipping

While kebabs are delicious, it is really difficult to cook them right when your food is constantly turning on the skewer. Here's the trick: just use two skewers! Your food will no longer be able to rotate, so you can flip it easily and cook it evenly.
