Do consider investing in a new grill:

Suppose you have been using the same old grill for a while now, how about investing in a new one. A new grill will have a lot of modern features, and it can help you make better food as well. Furthermore, if you don’t want a unique grill, consider investing in an electric smoker.

Do set up different heat zones on the grill:

Do make something for everyone:

You should make sure that there is something at your party for everyone. A BBQ party should also be enjoyable for vegetarians and vegans, so grill some vegetables, or make some delicious vegan burgers so that everyone can have a great time.

With steaks and burgers, seasoning is very important. Whether you are using salt and black pepper or have a more complex spice rub, you need to season your steaks and burgers generously.

Therefore, let it rest for at least 20 minutes.

Don’t forget to check for gas leaks:

If you have a propane operated grill, it is very important to check for any gas leaks before you fire it up. Gas leaks can, of course, be very dangerous, and they can do severe damage to you and your property.
