getting ready to grill this Holiday weekend?
Here are some beginner's "barbecue rules" to help you safely master everything from burgers and hot dogs to salmon and dessert:
Always keep your grill clean. This is essential for good-tasting food and general safety.
Always keep a close eye on what you're grilling. Food can burn quickly, so be on guard and check food frequently.
Cook vegetables and fruits at the outer, cooler edges of the grill since they tend to burn more quickly than meat.
When grilling low-fat meats and other foods that can stick, apply oil or nonstick cooking spray to the grill grate before placing it on the grill and before the grill is heated.
Turning food is essential to even cooking. However, turning too often slows cooking and can result in tough, dry food. Ideally, most fish and meats should be turned only once during cooking time.
Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 20 minutes before building kabobs to prevent skewers from burning.
Spice up your food a good hour or two before it hits the grill. This marinating time allows the food to absorb the flavors.
Don't apply sauces prior to grilling. Not only do they tend to drip onto the coals and cause flare-ups, but most also contain sugar, which will burn quickly and give the food a burnt taste. Consult the recipe to see when to begin basting; usually it's about 5 minutes before the end of grilling time.
Gas and charcoal each offer a different grilling experience. While some find it easier to grill with gas, charcoal has advantages of its own that you should consider. Learn about grilling with charcoal in the next segment.

In High School my nickname was Lucy..(imagine that!!) As far back as I can remember, I have always been a Calamity Jane! I could write a book, I think I'll call it "My Real Name is Lucy"... ecause you can't this stuff up! I've always been an animal lover...when I was 64 I brought home this giant Doberman, tied him to the back railing and gave him some water. He was FROTHING FROM THE MOUTH, I thought he was THIRSTY! They had to come and take him away...I was devestated, at 4 I had no idea what Rabies was. My instant bond with furry friends has continued into adulthood. I am currently on the Board at the Humane Society of Wicomico County. I adore children, although I do not have any, except my Husky Mix Shana! |
I am a native New Yawka, so naturally, Broadway is in my blood. It was my first love,....to be on the stage. Although my dream was to be Broadway bound, I ended up doing "OFF BROADWAY' Touring for many years. ( Grease, Caberet, Funny Girl, How To Marry Miilionaire (that didn't work!!)and How to Succeed in Business!Being on the road is tough, so I opted to try the next BEST thing...RADIO! I studied Theater and Communications in College, so it was the right thing to do. I started a small AM station in Annapolis, MD. One day I received a call from a man who said that he was the President of United Stations in Baltimore. He stated that he was driving through town, and heard my voice.. the conversation went like this. "Hello EJ, this is the President of United Stations in Baltimore, how would you like to come and work for me?" I looked at the phone and ," Who is this?" Once again, he identified himself, and I replied, " No really, who is this?" After having trouble believing someone hadn't put this guy up to a prank..he said... " Well, I tell you what,call my secretary and set up an appointment if you are interested!! As it turns out, he WAS for real. I worked in Baltimore for many years, went to D.C. in the late 80's and eventually came to the Eastern Shore! I've been for here ten years and love it. I love the Shore, I love the lifestyle, and most importantly, I love the PEOPLE! Each day it is a pleasure to talk to you, and always so nice to see you when we do our live broadcasts. I feel as though we have become friends. That's what makes this area so special. Thank you for your support.
