|Here’s a quick checklist: (1) Clean the grill properly. Always scrape the grill and rub it with oil to ensure that food won’t stick. (2) Pat the food dry before placing it on the grill, and don’t use a lot of oil. Food with excess moisture can cause the flames to smoke, and result in a burned taste. Smoke may look picturesque when food is cooking, but it’s not a good thing. (3) Similarly, rid meats of as much marinade as possible before placing them on the grill. (4) Don’t sprinkle fresh herbs on the cooking food—the fire will burn them. Instead, add them as an attractive garnish before serving. You can place herbs inside the cavity of a whole fish, or mix them into ground meat.
