When it comes to barbecue, the answer is always simple: make it fun!
That’s the takeaway from a new study that found that barbecuing is as fun as it is healthy.
In fact, a majority of barbecued meat has a pleasant aftertaste, according to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
The study’s authors looked at the health benefits of barbeque and found that the best way to get the most bang for your buck is to get it to the table as soon as possible.
So make sure to get a good-quality grill ready and take your time, says lead author of the study, Dr. Stephanie M. Johnson, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
“You don’t want to leave a bit of meat on the grill for too long, or you’ll end up with some of the meat not being cooked right and leaving you with a lot of overcooked, fatty meat,” she says.
The best way for you to make sure you have a good grill is to set the grill on a rack above the barbequed meat.
The rack is a nice place to place the grill rack, which should be high enough for the meat to sit perfectly, Johnson says.
You can also place the rack above your grill, and place a rack over the grill grate or the edge of the grill.
“If you put the grill over the grate, the meat won’t cook, so you won’t get any flavor from it,” she adds.
The bottom line is, keep the grill and grill rack high enough to avoid overcooking the meat.
You also want to keep the meat in the same place and away from your grill.
Johnson suggests using a griddle, but you can also grill the meat on a baking sheet.
“There are many other options to get your meat right, but they all come at a cost,” she warns.
Make sure to choose meat that has been properly cooked before cooking it, and also ensure that your grill rack is high enough so that the meat doesn’t get too hot.
