Knowing when to use the grill lid is one of those items that may seem trivial when you’re prepping, marinating, buying charcoal, and choosing the right cut.
Here are a few basics from Bon Appetit to remember as you prepare for this summer’s grilling season:
-Steaks demand high heat, so make sure to keep that burner on high or stick to the first 15 minutes of a grilling life for charcoal
-Marinate steaks with salt in the fridge for three to eight hours before grilling
-Make sure the steak is room temperature before placing on the grill to avoid a charred outside and raw inside
-Using the grill’s lid turns your burner into a smoky oven that will make the steak cook slightly quicker in the middle
-Sear the steak nicely in the center, then move it to the outer rim to slow cook
