Coyote’s Grilling Tips
Our team is passionate about grilling, and knows a thing or two about making the most of the grilling season. See our tips below for some basic but essential tips on grilling this summer.
Finding the Right Temperature
It is important to find the right temperature when cooking certain foods for both best taste and safety. Several factors come into play when it comes to grilling – should you cook on direct or indirect heat? Should you cook quickly at high temperatures or go the low and slow route? How long should you be grilling for? This Guide to Grilling Times and Temperatures can help you master your grilling.Want control over your grilling? The Coyote S-Series Gas Grill boasts several features that will ensure your food gets properly cooked including two high performance Coyote Infinity Burners™ and a ceramic briquette heat control grid. This grill also outputs up to 70,000 BTU, increasing your cooking options.
Choose the Right Flavors
Choosing the right flavors is essential to grilling. Not only is it important to select your grill type based on how it will cook your food, but also how it will flavor it. Some people are loyal to the smoky flavor charcoal brings, while others like to keep it simple with the reliability of a gas grill. Our suggestion? Know what grill to use, and what flavors to cook with going in.
A great option for this are smokers and pellet grills, which allow you to soak in flavors of your choice while cooking. Smokers are great for cooking something low and slow, but pellet grills offer incredible versatility in both flavors and cooking times. Check out our pellet flavor guidelines below, found in our Pellet Grill user manual.
- Apple – Apple wood pellets are best used for smoking chicken, pork, lamb and seafood. It is mild and can be mixed well with other flavors.
- Cherry – Like Apple, cherry wood pellets are extremely universal and can be used to smoke anything.
- Hickory – When it comes to smoking pork, hickory cannot be beat. In addition to pork, both chicken and beef are also best paired with hickory flavored wood pellets.
- Maple – Best for chicken and vegetables, maple wood pellets are also similar to cherry and a great flavor to keep on hand.
- Mesquite – This flavor is the best wood pellet to use for beef; specifically for beef brisket.
- Oak – While oak is a mild flavor mostly used for filling and blended flavors, it can be used for all proteins and vegetables. It is another universal flavor to keep on hand at all times.
- Pecan – Pecan wood pellets are ideal for smoking chicken. This flavor can be blended with others, especially when smoking chicken.
