The joyous moments are incomplete without exquisitely cooked food and it doubles the charm when it is cooked on outdoor grilling. Prior to grilling season, food enthusiasts clean grills and collect wood chips and charcoal. But grilling is not an easy task to do. To enjoy it fully and to get the best-cooked food perfectly, you must know the techniques of grilling that you can apply as per the demand of food. The cooking styles whether it is charcoal grilling or gas grilling, can be categorized into three grilling methods:
- Direct- when the food is cooked to fire
- By using an indirect method, the food is steam-cooked away from the fire.
- Combo method- the food is cooked and grilled under the above two methods.
Though all three methods are equally perfect and desired for the food type you need, the direct cooking method is valued as the best method. It delivers direct heat to food like hamburgers, steaks, sandwiches, beef patties, toast, poultry, and pork chops. Second, it provides even heat till the end of food as the coals equally spread in layers under the entire container.
Furthermore, it is a cooking method away from fats and excess oils. It fends off your delicious food from extra calories that are dangerous for the body and health.
