How to Grill

Grilling food over an open fire is one of life’s great pleasures, at least if you set yourself up for success. Here’s our guide to the fundamentals and a handful of techniques to master, whether you’re a beginner or an advanced cook, using either a gas or charcoal grill. We’ll show you how to achieve the perfect grilled steak or tender barbecued chicken. Get ready to get cooking with fire.

Grilled Soy-Basted Chicken Thighs With Spicy Cashews

The skinless chicken browns nicely over a medium flame, and the sugary soy basting sauce lacquers it beautifully in the final few minutes of cooking. It’s terrific with rice, or as a topping for a salad of sturdy greens.

Grilled Roast Chicken With Spinach-Ricotta Crostini

The skillet helps to distribute the heat and captures the juices, which would otherwise incinerate in the fire. Those juices are then put to good use as a cooking medium for dill-flecked, garlicky spinach.

Grilled Flounder

Cook only that one side, then flip the fish onto a serving platter or plate, and top with a little bit of butter, chopped parsley and a spray of lemon.

Dry-Rubbed London Broil

Here is a cheap beef dinner of uncommon flavor, perfect for serving to a crowd. It calls for the process known as indirect grilling, in which you build a fire on one side of your grill and cook on the other, so that the dry-rubbed meat is never in direct contact with flame.
