Moisture must be retained for tender, juicy and flavourful meat. The following tips will help accomplish this:
- Do not use a fork, as piercing the flesh allows the flavourful juices to escape.
- Turn meat each time bubbles appear on the surface, so that the moisture goes back into the steak. (Steak should only require turning once or twice)
- Barbecue sauce is best applied towards the end of cooking to prevent the sugars in the sauce burning.
- To prevent food from sticking, you should brush or rub cooking oil on the cooking grids or food.
Caution: Never spray oil onto the grids while burners are on; apply vegetable oil cooking spray before lighting the burners.
