10 Money-Saving Ideas for a Summer Barbecue
Don’t Go Overboard With Fuel
Newsflash: People tend to waste fuel when grilling. Browne points out that many of us pour way too much charcoal onto our grills. There’s no need to dump an entire 10-pound bag of charcoal each time—three pounds should cook any meal for four to six people. If you’re using propane and cooking brisket or pork loin, you only need to put it on high for the first five minutes after the food hits the grill. After that, turn it on low and let it cook slowly. (And be sure to turn the propane off right away when you’re done—or at least right after you’ve burned off any leftover debris.)
