Summer is Here: Hot Grilling Tips for Wheelchair Users

It’s summer now, which means it is prime grilling season! Most of you have seen my posts about grilling. I love it. It’s simple, quick and easy. Cleanup is minimal. Honestly, I think the food just tastes better when cooked on a grill.

If you enjoy grilling or want to get the most out of your summer grilling experience, here are some great tips on how to cook safely and make delicious food for your friends and family.

Keep the Grill Clean

Before you start cooking, brush the grill clean while it’s hot. A clean grill is a lot easier to work with. Empty the grease tray regularly. If not cleaned, the buildup can then act as fuel and catch fire while the grill is in use. Then, once you’re done cooking, brush the grill again before you turn it off. That way, it’s ready for your next use.

Stay Safe When Using Gas Grills

If you have a gas grill, make you sure you turn the gas off when you’re done cooking. Check your gas line for any leaks. A leak can cause propane or natural gas to build up inside the grill when the lid is closed.

Use Good Quality Grilling Utensils

If you plan to do a lot of grilling, it’s a good idea to invest in high quality grilling utensils. These make cooking easier to handle. A metal spatula, tongs and fork are good staples. You should consider purchasing a grilling basket as well, which is great for cooking vegetables or fish.

Follow these simple rules and your grilling experience will be so much better. Don’t you just love the smell of a hot BBQ? Happy grilling!
