Grilling Tips

Flamethrowers are not suitable substitutes for an actual grill. While quick, they tend to overcook.

If the propane tank you picked up at the gas station has a radioactive symbol on the side, use caution when lighting your grill.

The 15-second rule applies to anything that falls or rolls off the grill. You may return the item to the cooking grate in good conscience. Fire covers any mistake.

In the time it takes you to grill 4 whole chickens, you could have grilled 16 chicken quarters instead.

If your hamburger has turned to ash and blown away, you have overcooked it.

It is customary to sing grilling songs while grilling. A few old favorites are:

You Want Cheese On Your Burger?

Leftover Hot Dogs

Your Burger Chipped My Tooth!

That’s Just Extra Flavor

Has Anyone Seen My Eyebrows

If you don’t know the words, you can just repeat a title over and over. Your guests will enjoy that.
