Grilling tips

First, some simple rules for successful grilling. Use these three tips for foolproof results every time:

  • Start clean. Prevent sticking by beginning with a clean grill and well-oiled vegetables.
  • Don't move. When you first place vegetables on the grates, resist the urge to shift them around until they're nicely seared and lift off easily.
  • Manage the heat. Place the heartier vegetables, like onions and bell peppers, in the hottest spots on the grill. Keep more delicate produce such as tomatoes over places with less heat. Group the food by cooking time so you remember to remove everything from one area all at once.
