One key feature that buyers on Atlanta and Augusta new homes like is the outdoor patio space that is perfect for grilling out and entertaining friends and family. By using your charcoal or gas grill, you’ll be able to keep your house much cooler during those hot summer months. Plus, foods like burgers, steaks, chicken, fruit and veggies all benefit from being cooked over an open flame.
Some owners take their outdoor grilling to the extreme with full outdoor kitchens equipped with cooking and prep areas, storage drawers, refrigerators and sinks in addition to their grill. But, even if you’re outdoor space isn’t equipped to the max, you can still take advantage of our summer outdoor grilling guide:
- Keep your distance. Don’t set your grill up too close to the house for safety reasons, and always be sure to have a fire extinguisher handy.
- Keep it clean. Clean your grill thoroughly before and after every use to get rid of debris or caked on food. It may also help to use non-stick spray to keep your food from sticking.
- Keep it hot. Make sure you’re maximizing your grill’s power by keeping the lid on to maintain optimal cooking temperature. Guarantee your meats are cooked evenly each time by allowing them to get to room temperature before putting them on the grill.
- Keep it cooked. Barbeque chicken is a popular choice during the summer months, but it can be tricky to cook it all to the right temperature. Make cooking chicken easier by asking your butcher to butterfly it beforehand.
