Spring is finally here, which means it's time to break out the grill and start cooking up some delicious meals!
Grilling is a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather and make some fantastic food at the same time. But how do you make sure your grilled meals turn out perfectly every time? With a Tappecue thermometer, of course! Here are 5 tips for perfectly grilled spring meals using a Tappecue thermometer.
1. Use the right temperature for each dish while grilling
One of the keys to perfectly grilled food is getting the temperature just right. With a Tappecue thermometer, you can monitor the temperature of your grill and your food in real-time. For example, if you're grilling asparagus, you'll want a lower temperature (around 350-375°F) to prevent it from burning. If you're grilling lamb chops, you'll want a higher temperature (around 400-450°F) to get that perfect sear. Use the Tappecue Cruise Control to keep your chamber temperature consistent. The Cruise Control will blow air onto the charcoal whenever the temperature starts to drop to give your fire some life so that it heats back up to your desired tempertaure.
2. Use a probe for each type of food
The Tappecue thermometer comes with different probes that are designed for different types of food. The Extra-Care Standard Probe is perfect for thicker cuts of meat like briskets and pork shoulders, while the Extra-Care Mini Probe is great for thinner cuts like chicken breasts or burgers. The Dual Sensor Probe is perfect for monitoring both the grill temperature and the internal temperature of your food at the same time. The Chamber Probe is designed for use in smokers or other closed cooking chambers, while the Long Probe is perfect for monitoring stocks or soups. Lastly, the AirProbe3 is perfect for monitoring the temperature of your rotisserie or pressure cooker.
3. Monitor the internal temperature of your food
The internal temperature of your food is just as important as the temperature of your grill. With a Tappecue thermometer, you can easily monitor the internal temperature of your food to make sure it's cooked to perfection. For example, if you're grilling chicken wings, you'll want to make sure they reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F to ensure they're fully cooked. With the Tappecue App, you'll see all of your temperatures on your Smartphone so you'll know exactly when your food is done.
4. Use the Tappecue App to keep track of cooking times and temperatures
Using the Tappecue App to monitor cooking times and temperatures is an excellent way to optimize your Spring grilling recipes. With real-time temperature monitoring and customizable alerts, the Tappecue App helps ensure that your grilled dishes turn out perfectly every time. Then, save your cooking session to the Tappecue Cloud so you can come back to it and repeat and improve your cook each time.
5. Try out new recipes
Finally, don't be afraid to experiment with new recipes on the grill! Spring is the perfect time to try out some fresh, seasonal dishes like grilled asparagus, lamb chops, and even pizzas (how to use the Tappecue when making home-made pizza). With a Tappecue thermometer, you can be sure that your food will be cooked to perfection every time, no matter what new recipe you're trying out.
In conclusion, grilling season is here, and with these 5 tips, you'll be able to create perfectly grilled spring meals every time using a Tappecue thermometer. Remember to use the right temperature for each dish, use a probe for each type of food, monitor the internal temperature of your food, use the Tappecue App to keep track of cooking times and temperatures, and try out new recipes.
