He Weirdly Starts Rubbing This Potato All Over His Grill. But The Reason Is Brilliant!

Now grilling season just heating up it’s the perfect time to get some bbq life hacks. Food just seems to taste better when it’s barbecued to a perfect smoky finish right on a hot grill. One downside to cooking directly on the grate is that certain foods tend to stick to it. Often, a slab of juicy steak will adhere to the hot metal and dislodging it can be a pain in the rear. Even worse is when it’s burgers that stubbornly stick to it and attempting to move them causes the meat to fall apart.

Thankfully, there is a way to prevent the frustrating grill-stick problem, by treating your grill surface and making it non-stick. All you need is a potato, a fork, and a grill. Start by heating up the grill until it’s nice and hot. Then cut the potato in half and stab one of the halves with a fork so that the white fleshy side faces out. Place the cut open side of the potato down on the hot grill and rub it back and forth across the entire area. You should hear a pleasing sizzle sound and only need to go over the metal grate several times to create a non-stick coating.

How does this work? The starch in the potato gets pulled out when heated up and transferred to the hot metal surface, where it forms a non-stick barrier, perfect for grilling on. Overall it’s an effective, easy, non-toxic, and non-messy way to quickly prepare your grill and stop food from sticking on.

This Guy Always Pours H2O On His Propane Tank Before He Starts Cooking. The Reason Is Brilliant

Nothing tastes quite as delicious as food barbecued on the grill in the summertime, it just hits the spot. Everything from meat to corn on the cob and every other veggie under the sun takes on a whole new dimension of flavor when barbecued to perfection.

There’s also nothing worse than finding out that you’re low or close to running out of gas right when you’re about to start grilling! It happens, usually at the most inopportune times, especially if your propane tank doesn’t have a gauge on it. However, rather than abandon your BBQ plans you can try this neat little trick from America’s Test Kitchen to measure exactly how much propane is left in the tank. That way, you won’t ever run out of gas unexpectedly ever again.

First, boil up a pot of water and bring it outside to where your propane tank is located. Carefully pour the hot water all around the tank and down every side, making sure that the entire thing is covered. Next, feel around the tank with your hand and test areas to see if they are warm or cool. Warm spots indicate that the tank was heated up by the water because with no gas to cool it down, there’s no propane at that level. Cool spots indicate the opposite. Where the tank is cooler to the touch is the level the propane is at. That’s because the liquid in the tank is absorbing all the heat, leaving the surface cool to the touch.

So the next time you are unsure about how much propane is left in your grill’s tank simply unleash your inner MacGyver, boil up a pot of water, and drip it down and around the tank. Cold spots will reveal the level and you can go from there. Check out the video for more details and to get a better visual idea, and don’t forget to share and enjoy!
