Top Grilling Techniques

Indirect or Direct Cooking

The two most common ways to cook your food on a charcoal grill are direct grilling and indirect grilling. Explore the differences between the two and learn the basics of indirect vs direct grilling.

Cold Smoke

What hot smoking and cold smoking have in common is the ability to enrich your food with a delicious smoky flavor. The difference with cold smoke is that you are trying not to cook the food. These are typically done between 65-85 degrees but no more than 100. You can use cold smoke for fish, vegetables, sausage, and cured meats! Learn How to Cold Smoke Cheese
