When it comes to grilling chicken, breasts can be a problem for some, especially boneless skinless chicken breasts on the grill. The meat itself is lean, and without the bones to insulate it or skin to protect it, that naked breast on the grill has a tendency to easily overcook and dry out.
Great Way To Grill Chicken Breasts
One method is to marinate chicken cutlets, or chicken breasts pounded to an even thickness, and quickly grill them on high heat. We use this method for our cilantro lime chicken and it works fine.
Another way, which doesn’t require you to change the shape of the chicken breasts, is to brine the chicken first.
All it takes is 30 minutes in a simple brine solution of 1/4 cup kosher salt dissolved in 4 cups water...Read More

Simple Grilled Salmon
I always see someone asking about smoking or grilling salmon, So I figured I would share this easy and simple grilled salmon.

I decided I would do a article on grilling accessories I’ve bought and gotten as a gifts for my grilling and smoking hobby.
Let’s begin with some meat claws great shredding your pork shoulder for pulled pork, or any other meat you are looking to shred . These things make shredding your meat up very easy and kinda fun to do also. They are a great cooking tool to add to your arsenal.
I also love using this rib rack for cooking my ribs. I like to use these when in need of making more room so I don’t have to lay the slabs of ribs flat on the grates. They work great ! If you are wanting to make more room for more ribs these are a must have.
I started using pink butcher paper to wrap my meats in instead of aluminum foil, so far I am liking it...Read More
