SEAR AND SIZZLE; FIRE UP THE GRILL FOR THE FOURTH. - what's the best charcoal grill
Signature: Natalie Howton, food editor for Daily News, who doesn't like the scent of the food sizzsizz creaking on the grillAddicted to the ultimate result of wonderful smoke?What better way to celebrate the holiday of July 4 than a casual barbecue?From appetizers to desserts.A series of recent cooking books on the subject is full of tips for success.Santa Fe-Based on cookbook book author Michael McLaughlin designed his new 16 book, "everything is on the grille" (Harper Collins;$22.Show people that it's not just the main course or the meat that can be baked.From simple vegetable kebabs to complex kebabs, including lamb chops, the barbecue itself applies to many different foods, he noted."For me," said McLaughlin, who grew up without a grill in the backyard, "the grill is probably the most flexible device I have.It has the most choiceIt's a broiler. it's an oven. it's a burner.This is the only best way to get the most flavor, color and texture in most foods with the least fuss and fat."Barbecue is also a casual and tolerant cooking method that requires minimal technical experience.Because he lives in a dry climate, McLoughlin uses a grill every year.round.Of the 150 recipes in this book, many of the recipes inspired by international cuisine including Korea, Thailand and Mexico are completely cooked on the grill, and some are pre-cookedCooked on the grill.The appetizer is a separate chapter.Other recipes are arranged in 52 menus, classified according to the type of meat or seafood used.The last two chapters focus on spicy barbecue and entertaining barbecue.But you can freely mix and match recipes according to your personal taste.Jamaican Jerk chicken, grilled pro skin with ham, grilled-Three cheese and pepper sword fish skewers and grilled Penne with yogurt-The author's favorite recipe is almond sauce."Most of the recipes I have developed (except for the ones from friends)," McLoughlin notes, "They were all tested on a large Weber propane grill using a seasoning stick (when a spokeswoman for juice and fat Weber pointed out that they would not gather, ignite and burn;Instead, they will hissing, smoke, and bring a rich and delicious outdoor flavor to your food, not lava.Others tested on a charcoal grill.McLaughlin prefers gas grills for their accuracy and reliability.They are fast too.Heating and constant.If you dial medium, the grill will remain medium hot for an hour, or no matter how long you put the grill there.He stressed that taste is not a problem that some experts think --You can get a lot of things with a gas grill.Some experts like the convenience of the gas grill, but they don't think the gas grill is as hot as wood or charcoal --So you can't get a good sear.More knowledge is needed for charcoal grills"How to keep an eye on it," McLoughlin said .".However, they are cheaper (which can be attractive for beginners who don't want to put a lot of money into the grill) and more portable.When using the grill cover, McLaughlin uses it most often because it shortens the cooking time and maintains the smell of barbecue juice and fat dripping on the lava rock (gas grill) and vaporizing.Chris SchlesingerAuthor of the grill license with John Willoughby (William Morrow;$27.50) think that people use the grill to cover too much, causing the food to taste "crumpled "."If you want to use a piece of wood or a block of wood (add a little smoky flavor), McLoughlin suggests, plan to soak the discharged debris in the water at least an hour before throwing them on hot lava stones or charcoal.In the case of fastCook food like fish and chicken breast and let the fries start smoking before the barbecue.He added that there are meiskett or pecan chips in the supermarket, but other more esoteric flavors can be found in some gourmet shops or emailsorder catalogs.When asked about the use of potato chips, McLaughlin noted that for a fillet or steak that takes 8 minutes to grill, he would add about two cups of drained, soaked fries.He also pointed out that in some of the newer Weber grills with a seasoning stick, the chips should not be soaked, but should be placed in the side chamber.Although normal people do not distinguish between barbecues and barbecues, some barbecue experts are very worried about this difference these days.McLaughlin is not a big deal about it, but rather chooses to do his best to educate chefs as much as possible."The barbecue is a slow, indirect cooking of large pieces of meat, which is carried out on flames and can be large pieces or small pieces of meat," he said ."."There is a common living heat source for barbecue and barbecue," Schlesinger noted .".Schlesinger continued: "The barbecue is hot and a quick cooking of something gentle ."A large and hard piece of meat is cooked slowly for a long time."Some tips for successful barbecue results are as follows: take a deep breath and relax, but be careful," McLoughlin stressed .".Know-How to achieve it quickly with experience, he added.Please note that you can't just leave the food on the grill and walk away."Barbecue requires more judgment than other cooking methods," McLoughlin said ." The grill has cool and hot spots and you need to know where they are so you can move around the food to slow down or speed up cooking, he added.For the best results, you need to adjust the cooking temperature, the position of the shelf, or the food on the shelf.Start with a clean grill.After lighting, preheat a gas grill covering 10 to 15 minutes before adding food.Charcoal is usually very hot and can be used in half an hour.When the coal is gray with red flashing.Before baking lean meat (chicken) or refined (fish) food, gently oil the hot rack with a folded paper towel dipped in edible oil.Avoid baking too fast, too hot, or too close to the flame.Figure that bone-It takes about 30 minutes for the chicken to cook.Avoid food crowding the shelves because it will reduce efficiency.McLoughlin baked most of the food at high temperature on a charcoal grill or medium grillOn the gas grill.For flare-Ups on a charcoal grill, use a water gun if necessary, but avoid pouring charcoal fire.Avoid water on a gas grillJust turn off the hood and reduce the heat until it fades.Use jelly-Roll the pan onto the grill for easy food.In order to avoid pollution, in the absence of thorough cleaning of the pan with hot soapy water and thorough drying, do not place cooked food in a pot that previously contains raw food.Keep in mind that the unique flavor of the Grill comes from the fat and juice that drops on the heat source and evaporates.Steam adds flavor.If the grill is covered, you will eventually find more flavor in the food.The steam will dissipate when the food is grilled, resulting in less roastingflavored food.Here are a few recipes from some of the latest barbecue cooking books.Use these to ignite the grill on July 4 and beyond.With the black pepper shrimp
