4th of July Grilling Tips

What is one of the top 3 most popular grilling occasions? According to the Hearth, Patio & Barbeque Association, it’s the Fourth of July (as well as Memorial Day & Labor Day). To celebrate one of the biggest grilling days of the year, we have asked our employees to share some of their grilling tips for the holiday weekend. Enjoy, and please share your own tips in the comments!
Get ready for your barbecue right and head to your local retailer and get yourself an AmeriGas Cylinder Exchange grill cylinder. 
~ Jill, Accounting

Take some mesquite wood chips (dried, no need to soak in water) and wrap them in foil and cut slits in the top of the foil and place directly on the grill towards the back. This will add a unique flavor to chicken, beef or pork. ~Bruce, SAP

Grill corn on the cob with olive oil. Yum yum! ~Ben, Credit & Collections

When using wood chips for smoking, soak them in apple juice or apple cider for 30 minutes prior to use. This adds a nice flavor to grilled foods. ~Vitaly, Safety & Compliance

Here’s a grill maintenance tip: Mechanic’s hand cleaner (such as GoJo) works great to clean the outside of a greasy grill (which has been turned off). ~Bill, Human Resources

  • Wash the outside of the grill with ordinary detergent and water to remove the surface dirt.  Let it dry
  • Apply the hand cleaner to the surface with a soft cloth (e.g., terry cloth or an old T shirt)
  • Polish the surface with a clean cloth

Soak cedar plank board in water for 30 minutes before cooking salmon and other fish. ~Paula, Marketing

Grilled pineapple!! Check out this yummy recipe from Michelle, Customer Relations Representative
1 large ripe pineapple
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice

Trim, core, and peel pineapple. Cut into quarters from top to bottom. Slice out the core from each quarter. Cut each quarter slice into four pieces (two pieces lengthwise and two crosswise). You should now have 12 wedges of pineapple (about 3-inch by 1-inch each).

In a small bowl, combine honey, lemon or lime juice. Brush the glaze onto each slice of pineapple, coating completely.

Preheat barbecue grill. Either oil or spray the grill rack with non-stick cooking spray. Place pineapple wedges on the grill and cook approximately 4 minutes on each side (turning so that grill marks are on all sides) until the pineapple becomes fragrant and starts to dry out on the surface. Don’t over cook or pineapple becomes mushy!

Remove from the grill and brush with any additional glaze one more time. Serve and enjoy!

We hope you enjoy these tips and would love to hear others you have. Happy grilling this 4th of July!!!

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any
    interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make
    my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
