BBQ and Grill Tips for the Upcoming Grillmaster

Burgers on Grill

If you want to host the best grill-out in town, here are some BBQ and grill tips for the aspiring cookout king.


Be careful of raw meat: This is cooking 101, but the warning still stands. Any time you’re handling raw meat, be careful. Wash your hands and don’t reuse the same plate.

Light the grill in advance: If you’re using charcoal, light the grill 30 minutes ahead of time. If you’re using lighter fuel, let the flames die down to avoid that fuel taste seeping into the food.

Keep a spray bottle on hand: For those out-of-control flames.

Marinate the chicken: Try marinating the chicken overnight with oil or butter or some other kind of marinade for a juicier, more flavorful dish.

Pick fatty steak: This may seem unappetizing, but as you cook, the fat melts and makes the steak more tender.

Use tongs: Puncturing the meat with a fork can dry it out, so use tongs or a spatula instead.

Cook burgers to well-done: Ground beef contains more bacteria than other types of meat, so make sure you cook hamburgers thoroughly.

Don’t be afraid to experiment: Tired of plain ol’ BBQ sauce? Experiment with different flavors, seasonings, herbs, and textures.

The classic Chevrolet pickup made high marks as a light-duty truck.

LOS ANGELES – The all-new Gen Six Chevrolet Camaro and the Chevrolet Colorado with its all-new 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine won the 2016 Motor Trend Car and Truck of the Year awards on Monday night.

It is the second consecutive Truck of the Year award for Colorado, the mid-size pickup introduced as a 2015 model.

Motor Trend editors praised the Camaro for its lighter weight, which contributes to “world-class sports car performance and dynamics.”

The Colorado diesel offers the best fuel economy for a pickup truck in the United States, with an Environmental Protection Agency-estimated 31 mpg on the highway for two-wheel drive models, and the highest trailering capability in the midsize truck segment: up to 7,700 pounds (2WD) when equipped with the available trailering package.

Colorado is available in four-door extended or crew cab models with Work Truck, LT and Z71 trim levels. The diesel engine is offered in LT and Z71 Crew Cab models with 2WD or four-wheel drive. It features a variable-geometry turbocharger for optimal power and efficiency, and is SAE-certified at 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm.

Six all-new powertrain combinations are offered on the 2016 Camaro, including a standard 2.0L Turbo and an available, all-new 3.6L V-6 in LT models, and the 455-hp LT1 6.2L V-8 in the SS – making it the most powerful Camaro SS ever. Each engine is available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

Vehicle mass has been reduced between 223 and 390 pounds, depending on the model, creating a more nimble, responsive driving experience. A dramatic, sculpted exterior accentuates the leaner, stiffer platform and slightly smaller dimensions. Meticulously tuned in the wind tunnel, the new Camaro’s exterior contributes to performance through reduced aerodynamic lift for better handling while enhancing efficiency.

Both the Camaro, which won Motor Trend Car of the year in 1982, and Colorado are well-connected, offering Chevrolet MyLink with phone integration capability for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as OnStar 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
