12 Grilling Mistakes To Avoid

MISTAKE #2: YOU SPREAD THE COALS BEFORE THEY WERE FULLY GRAY

The Thinking: But I’m hungry now! I get it. When you have a spatula in your hand, everything looks like a burger. You just can’t wait to get that food on the grill, gray ash be damned.

The Reality: You start cooking before your coals are ready leading to inconsistent heat, off-flavors, and unpredictable cook times.

The Fix: Have patience! There’s a reason the bag tells you to wait until the coals are covered in gray ash. A fire that might seem moderately hot while the coals still have some black will very rapidly rise to inferno levels as the coals continue to ignite. Temperature control is priority number one when it comes to grilling, and waiting until those coals stabilize is the best way to avoid any surprises.
