Tips for Prepping and Cooking Your Food
Use Non-Reactive Bowls

- They do not react to acidic ingredients;
- They do not hold odours.
Brush the Grill When It’s Hot
Debris is easier to remove from the grill when it is hot, so preheat your grill before using a long-handled wire grill brush to keep your rack free of debris from previous meals.
Don’t Forget to Use Oil!
