Bonus tip: Why prefer grilling method to others

Grilling foods, particularly grilling meats is far healthier than other methods such as deep fried. Grilling doesn’t sear in a lot of fats, which are common on certain cuts of beef and pork. When you cook meats on the grill, it’s also easier to trim any unwanted fat from the meat than it is when you cook meat on a stove or in the oven. Grilling is also preferable because grilling doesn’t take away any of the natural tenderness and natural flavor of the meats.
