10 Tips for Perfect Grilling
To help you get the perfect steaks every time, follow these simple tips from the experts at Omaha Steaks:

1. Clean and preheat grill on high.

2. Lightly oil everything before putting it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking.

3. Season food before grilling.

4. Sear the outside of steaks when grilling. This helps with the flavor and juiciness.

5. Use tongs or a spatula to turn meat on the grill. Using a fork can damage the meat.

6. Cover grill as much as possible during the grilling process. This helps to lock in the grilled flavor and will help prevent flare-ups.

7. Keep a spray bottle with water handy to douse any unexpected flare-ups.

8. Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after turning over the food. This will make sure your food is evenly cooked.

9. Place cooked food on a clean plate. Never place cooked food on the plate you used to transport the raw food to the grill without thoroughly washing it first.

10. Allow foods to "rest" for 5 minutes between cooking and eating. This will help them retain moisture when you cut into them.
