While historically known as more of the man’s domain, there’s no reason why girls can’t get out there and fire up the grill themselves!
Don’t know how to grill? Let’s change that because I’m on a mission to prove #girlscangrill!
It’s true; I used to be intimidated by grilling and early on, I let my husband do most of the outdoor cooking. However, once we got our Weber gas grill and I learned how easy it was, I was hooked!
In fact, not only did I feel confident cooking up chicken, fish, and veggies on the grill, but I wanted to!
And now I want to help you master grilling as a way to eat healthy, without sacrificing on flavor.
Watch my video below to see how easy and fun it is! Simple prep, simple clean up, and delicious food!
Grilling Tips For Easy Grilling
Here’s why I love grilling with Weber and my best tips for success:
- My Weber Grill is easy to turn on. There’s no charcoal, no lighters or lighter fluid, no matches needed, a simple click of a button and we’re cooking.
- Prepping your food for the grill is quick and simple. So much flavor comes from the grill itself that you can actually keep it simple: olive oil, salt, pepper and maybe some herbs are all you need. Some of my favorite foods to put on the grill are vegetables like sweet potatoes, zucchini, and asparagus. And you can’t forget the meat! Chicken and salmon are two of my favorite proteins to cook on the grill as well.
- Quit peaking and no over flipping. Because if you’re looking, it ain’t cookin’. Go ahead and use a timer or a meat thermometer. My tip to not overcooking your meat is to take it off a few minutes before it’s done. While you prepare the rest of your food, your meat will finish cooking as it rests.
- Clean up with the grill is a snap. No pots and pans to scrub. Keep it simple so you keep enjoying your guests, your family and the beautiful summer evening.
