Knowing When to Use the Grill Lid this Summer

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
