Nothing says summertime quite like the grill, and trust me, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Make sure your grill is HOT, your food is seasoned properly, and that you leave your food alone while it’s cooking. Seriously, don’t turn it too much. Also, make sure you bring you proteins to room temp for 30 minutes before you throw it on the grill. Too cold of meat on a hot surface chars the outside and undercooks the inside. Ok, now that you have my tips, tricks, and recipes, it’s time to get grilling!
