Summer Grilling Tips with Lydia Martinez

Tips for Grilling Brats:

- Always boil them first! If you just pop them on a grill, the outside will burn before the inside is cooked.

- Use a flavorful liquid to pre-cook - from broth to juice to beer.

- Finish the brats on the grill and char lightly.

Tips for Grilling Steaks:

- Salt your steaks heavily 4-5 hours BEFORE you start grilling.

- Let them sit uncovered in the fridge until an hour before you are ready to begin cooking them.

- Bring your meat to room temperature before you toss it on the grill. Cold meat dries out fast.

- Let your meat rest for about 10 minutes before you serve it.

Tips for Grilling Fruit:

- You can grill peaches, apricots, cherries, watermelon, nectarines, pears and apples.

- Brush the fruit lightly with oil and a sprinkle of salt.

- Grill cut side down first for 2-3 minutes / side.

- Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
