Ultimate Grill Guide
It’s officially summer! Meaning it’s also officially BBQ season. When it’s too hot to cook, you want less dishes, or you just love that old fashion BBQ char, check out these tips below for simple, delicious and healthy grilling.
BEST OILS TO USE:
When grilling at a high temperature, it is best to use oils with higher smoke points to avoid burning. We recommend Filippo Berio Olive Oil or Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil. When marinating, Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oils are great to add flavor to meats and vegetables.
HOW TO BUILD A SIMPLE MARINADE
Combine these steps and marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight (the longer the better)! Use about 1 ½ Cup Oil to 1 Cup Acid (see examples below).
Fat – This helps keep food moist, lock in flavor and prevent it from sticking to the grill.
TRY: Filippo Berio Olive Oil, Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil or Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Acid – These help to tenderize and add flavor;
TRY: Filippo Berio Balsamic Vinegar, Filippo Berio Red Wine Vinegar or Lemon Juice
Aromatics – Boost flavor and add character to the marinade
TRY: Onion, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, fresh or dried herbs
