Keep That Lid Closed!
During winter in the Chicagoland area there is one tip that will keep you grilling without issues...keep the lid on your grill closed as much as possible!
With the temperatures so cold, the more we open the lid, the longer our food takes to cook. Most proteins are 70-75 percent water, the longer the protein is on the grill the greater the chance it has of drying out.
Keeping the lid on your grill closed as much as possible not only keeps the heat inside, but also helps cook our foods faster which will result in a more moist and tender meal that everyone will love!
Next time you grill, do yourself a favor - preheat your grill, use a timer and keep a lid on it!
