Top Tips for Safe Summer Grilling from Firedisc Grills Chef Ambassador

Tips for the Summer’s Grilling Season, from Firedisc Grills:

Spring has arrived and summer BBQ’s are kicking off throughout the country. Many of us have heard the horror stories about the risks of food borne illness when grilling.

Here are a few tips to keep friends and family safe when serving up summer BBQ meals in the coming months.

Food Safety:
Tip #1 – Raw Meat: Make sure to never leave raw anything out at room temperature for too long; the FDA recommends a 2-hour exposure limit.

Tip #2 – Meat Thermometer: We know you’re a grill pro but it doesn’t hurt to keep a meat thermometer on-hand just to be safe when you’re unsure or to satisfy Aunt Jane.

Tip #3 – Meat Plate: Make sure Grandpa or Uncle Bob do not accidentally serve any cooked food on the plate that once held raw meat or raw poultry.

Tip #4 – Clean Hands: If you’ve touched raw meat, keep some antibacterial handy wipes on-hand if you can’t make it to the sink to wash your hands before handling your cooking utensils, or anything else for that matter, to avoid food borne illness due to cross contamination.

Grill Safety:
Tip #1 – Cook outdoors: Never cook on your grill indoors! No matter what the weather is doing outside.

Tip #3 – Grill Perimeter: For kids safety at the party, set up a 3’ safe zone around your grill.

Tip #4 – Propane: Check your propane cylinder and hose for any leaks, especially if it has been hibernating all winter. A solution of water and soap can be used to show any leaks as bubbles will form.

Weber’s New Hybrid Charcoal Grill

Weber Hybrid Charcoal Grill

Weber-Stephen Products LLC, the world’s leading manufacturer of outdoor gas and charcoal grills and grilling accessories, announces a new charcoal grill that combines the form and functions of the classic Weber kettle grill with the company’s beloved Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker smoker to create a completely new grill option from Weber.

The new Summit® charcoal grill and Summit® charcoal grilling center (MSRP:  $1,699 and $2,299 respectively) will be available at select specialty retailers beginning April 6, 2016. Consumers can visit www.weber.com to find a dealer in their area.

“We are so excited to bring these new grills to our customers—providing true convection cooking that only Weber’s trademarked round shape can provide,” said Kim Lefko, Chief Marketing Officer, Weber-Stephen Products LLC. “Charcoal grill owners interested in smoking, and gas grill owners who long for the taste of charcoal now have the best of both worlds available to them.”

Designed to provide ultimate control and hold steady temperatures for more than 10 hours of cooking, the Weber Summit charcoal grill will incorporate many unique features including multi-zone heat options, a hinged diffuser plate, a two-position fuel grate, an insulated lid and bowl for less charcoal consumption and better heat retention, and a slow cook/smoke bowl damper set-up that allows for three bottom vent positions.

In addition, the Weber Summit charcoal grills come with a Gourmet BBQ System cooking grate—a hinged cooking grate that features a removable center piece designed to fit a variety of Weber accessories, including a wok, griddle, and a poultry roaster.

The Weber Summit charcoal grill features 452 square-inches of cooking space, Snap-Jet gas ignition for easy lighting, a Rapidfire lid damper and built-in thermometer, a bottom wire rack for additional storage and the One-Touch cleaning system for easy ash removal. The Weber Summit charcoal grilling center will also include a stainless steel tabletop, wire basket and tool hook, along with a CharBin storage container.
