Expert Tips

  • Direct heat works best for quick-grilling burgers, chicken breasts and kabobs. Indirect heat works best for slow-barbecuing ribs, turkey legs or roasts.
  • When grating the lime, do not include the white membrane, or pith, which is bitter.
  • When making your shopping list, put ground pork with the other perishables you’ll buy. You’ll want to use it within 2 days after purchase.
