Never defrost meats on the counter. Prepare two marinades: one for raw meat and one for basting. Designate one colored cutting board for meat. Use separate tongs for raw and cooked poultry.
Sanitize your kitchen and utensils. These tips can ensure your barbecue is a success. What’s my key to great grilling? I always choose quality ingredients that are natural, fresh, local and humanely raised because I think they taste better.
