Challenge Yourself: Next Level Grilling Techniques

Grilling is more than just a cooking method; it's a culinary adventure that allows you to explore various flavors, textures, and techniques. If you are a grilling enthusiast who loves to push the boundaries and elevate your skills to new heights, you've come to the right place! In this blog post, we will delve into some next-level grilling techniques for Masterbuilt enthusiasts. These chef-approved tips and tricks will take your grilling game to a whole new level.

Infuse Flavor with Marinades

Marinades are an essential tool in a grill master's arsenal. Experiment with different combinations of herbs, spices, oils, and acids to create unique flavor profiles that elevate your grilled dishes. Ensure you marinate your meat or vegetables for an adequate amount of time, allowing the flavors to penetrate deeply. Be cautious with acids like citrus or vinegar, as prolonged exposure can start to "cook" the ingredients, altering their texture.

Harness the Flavorful Power of Wood Planks

For an extraordinary grilling experience, consider using wood planks to infuse your dishes with delightful smoky flavors. Soak the planks in water or other liquids like wine or apple juice to add extra layers of taste. Place the planks on the grill and let them heat up until they start to smolder. Then, place your seasoned meat or vegetables on top of the plank, close the lid, and let the magic happen. The result is a unique combination of smoky goodness and moist, tender food that will leave your guests raving.

Master Multi-Level Grilling

The Gravity Series® grill features multiple cooking racks, giving you the opportunity to grill different types of food at various heat levels simultaneously. Take advantage of this feature by grilling vegetables on one level, searing steaks on another, and toasting bread on the top. This efficient use of space will elevate your grilling game and impress your guests with a diverse array of perfectly cooked dishes.

Try Rotisserie Grilling

For a show-stopping grilling experience, embrace rotisserie grilling with the Masterbuilt Gravity Series. The rotisserie feature allows you to cook large cuts of meat, such as whole chickens, roasts, or even a leg of lamb, evenly and with exceptional flavor. Secure the meat onto the rotisserie rod, set it in place on the grill, and let it slowly rotate over the heat. The constant basting from the meat's own juices ensures a succulent and tender result that will impress both your eyes and taste buds.

Mastering Smoke

The Masterbuilt Gravity Series comes equipped with an ash pan that you can directly place your wood in, which allows you to infuse your grilled dishes with delightful smoky flavors. Experiment with different types of wood chips, chunks, or splits to find what you like best. Soak the wood chips in water or other liquids to produce more smoke and prevent them from burning too quickly. Place the soaked wood chips in ash pan and let them work their magic, infusing your food with delicious smoky flavor.
