Cheers! Grilling Secrets
I LOVE to grill.
Even in the middle of winter I can be found bundled up in boots and a puffy jacket lighting the grill for dinner.
Since I love to grill here are some of my grilling secrets and a few of my newest favorite recipes.
Cheers! Barbecue Secrets
There is nothing better than a Perfect Grilled Steak with Herb Butter. Seriously, I would choose this over almost any other meal out there!
The best way to ensure perfect meat is ThermoPro LCD Digital Food Thermometer for BBQ Grill Oven Smoker Built-in Clock Timer with Stainless Steel Probe. This is my favorite cooking tool to use for the grill and the ONLY way to guarantee that you don’t overcook or under-cook your meat.
Imagine a pile of these Grilled Shrimp with Roasted Garlic-Cilantro Sauce gracing your barbecue! People will be talking for days!
When you are cooking fish or shrimp this Weber Original Stainless Steel Fish Basket is the best tool to make sure it doesn’t fall apart or fall through the grates.
I can eat a whole batch of these Grilled Mexican Street Corn by myself but it is way more fun to let everyone else in on this messy goodness!
Grilled corn on the cob is so easy to make with these Heat Resistant Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves! I have used these gloves almost every time I grill from checking the meat to turning the corn or anything else on the grill. It is like an extension of my hands on the grill.
BUT I AM NOT FINISHED YET!!!
Now I am seeing the things needed for cooking too. It’s a process. Grilled food I love, but condo does now allow grilling. I suppose the beef steak with herb batter can be cooked on the pan?
I usually only grill chicken for kebabs but I should definitely become a little more adventurous especially with these tips. The temperature machine is a great idea we used to have one at work but one at home would be so useful too.

It is seriously one of my favorite tools ever! Glad I could give you some inspiration!
I’m not sure if I’ve told you before, but I am a reformed vegetarian / vegan so any tips relating to meat are absolutely cherished!
I’m still not sure If I would enjoy the steak, but those grilled shrimp, and chicken with tropical salsa look to die for! I can’t wait to try them!
This may seem like a silly question, but how do you use the Cedar Grilling Planks? Do you put them on top of the grill….. or…?
Keep up the amazing work! I’m really looking forward to your future posts and delicious goodies!
As usual, beautiful dishes coming out from your kitchen. We love grilled meat but only have them on weekends. Now, my mom bought an electric grill and i hope the taste would be the same as when we use charcoal.
And probably, being vegetarian, I could use a LOT of these same tips to grill vegetables! 🙂
I want try this so bad, I love grilling and the smell. I have never came across ThermoPro, everyone shoud have it. And that corn though… I cant even.
Thanks for sharing your grilling tips Alison, I love barbecue foods and there’s nothing with a skewer of slow, chargrilled meat on a sunshiney day/

Thanks Sarah! I agree with you!
The pictures have my mouth watering! We enjoy grilling as well. I have not purchased any items though to go along with our grilling experience. This is something I should look into to!
Thanks Leigh Anne! These tools make a world of a difference!
Whoop whoop Alison , I am back checking on your latest posts ! Needless to say , that this will go out to my friends again . Great post as always , perfect timing as the weather will be BBQ-weather soon ! Can’t beat a great afternoon ( well , our ‘afternoons’ usually end by midnight sometimes when BBQing ) with friends around the BBQ , some fresh made Sangria with it , and life is good !
Life is good when you put it that way! I want to come join you and your friends at the BBQ! 🙂
I absolutely love grilled food! Summer is amazing because my boyfriend’s dad makes the BEST Barbecues! I think i may have to get the thermo pro for myself! That corn looks yummy too 🙂
Summer is the best because grilling is the easiest way to cook and the fastest in most cases!
Just like you, I would grill all year round, you just can’t beat that taste. Shrimp and veggies from the grill is my ultimate fave
I agree with you, there is nothing better than a steak perfectly cook to my licking. I find it astonishing though that some restaurants simply can’t cook steak and they make it rubbery and chewy. Even I can cook a better steak! 🙂

It makes me so mad if they don’t cook my steak right, too!
We grill all year long, as well! In fact, it can be the middle of a blizzard and my husband doesn’t mind. Your pictures look incredible! Inspiration for dinner the rest of this week!
I love when I have kindred spirits out grilling in the winter with me!
When I saw the grilled shrimp, I was like “OMG! Such torture!”. I’m allergic to seafood specially shrimps and crabs but I love them anyway. I still eat them and just prepare meds. LOL. So it really made me hungry when I saw the photo. huhu. Anyway, I love grilled food too but we do not have the tools you’ve mentioned. Will try to look for them here. Thanks!
You make me laugh! Stay safe, Aika!
I need to get my hubby a new grill. We love cooking out in the warmer months!
A new grill…that is like music to my ears!

Mexican grilled sweetcorn on the cob sounds delicious and the utensils sound helpful too especially those handy gloves.
Living on the south-central coastal bend of Texas, we grill year round. My husband can grill pretty much anything to perfection, in my opinion! Beef, pork, chicken, venison, turkey, goat, shrimp, oysters, fish, an array of vegetables – he’s grilled it all! YUM!
You are a lucky girl, Kat! 🙂
Some good oven gloves are priceless for a chef! Great list of products to try out!
I agree! I always use mine!
That herbed butter looks amazing on the meat. I have got to do that soon!
I know! It is so easy to make too!

I love grilling and this is the perfect to do it (i.e. spring). I love kebab and always grill it. I can’t wait for the winter to go bye bye.
Wowwww! the pictures made me crave right now!! i also love grilling but not does not know how to. I just prefer grilled food right now because it’s much more healthy especially now that im watching my weight. Lucky me though my mom does the grilling for me. hehehe.
In the states (in Memphis to be exact) we would start really grilling in March… It is starting to warm up here in Norway and the snow is finally melting! I can’t wait for us to be able to grill! Its part of my Southern roots! These are some great secrets that I am saving until it’s grilling time here!
I love grilled food, but sometimes the weather isn’t practical to go outside.
My better half totally thinks he’s a grill master and would love this post. I have to get him a grill basket before the summer hits!
That would be the best gift! Grill baskets are the best!
My husband is so crazy when it comes to such grilled foods, particularly he loves grilled chicken kabobs so much. These are some wonderful secrets that could help get the best out of them & my goodness that grilled Shrimp is amazing!
