Its’ that time of the year and if you’re like me you have taken a weekend to scrub the gas grill from top to bottom.

What do you think? Is there anything else you should do before you start the BBQ? The quick answer is yes ; several things..

You should do a safety check, especially if you are cooking with propane. Remove the tank, clean it, and inspect it for any leaks. Check for any damage or wear. Check the valve for leaks by spraying a mixture of liquid soap and water when the valve is on. If bubbles appear, turn off the valve and immediately get it fixed of replaced.

Make sure you check out your owner’s manual for complete instructions if this is the first time you’ve cleaned a gas grill.

The next step is get the meat you plan to grill. Start with pasture raised beef, lamb, pork and free range chicken. I see that look on your face. You mean there is a difference? YES, there is a different taste when there are no added hormones and no Sub-Therapeutic Antibiotics. Oh, make sure the beef is Dry Aged for at least 21 days.

One family farm that meets or exceeds what we’ve been talking about is the Dover Hill Farm. Over 600 acres in the town of Earlville. South of Utica on highway 20. There is a difference in pasture raised beef. Once you try it you’ll never go back.

Ready, Set, Grill
