Weekend Grill Hacks

A long holiday weekend calls for some good BBQ and tasty grilled food.

The following are some grill hacks for an enjoyable, safe and yummy time:

  1. Forget using expensive cleaners to wash off your grill grate, simply cut an onion and rub across each rung. The acidity will cut though residual grease and actually leave the flavor for whatever your grilling
  2. Use your empty paper egg cartons to place your coals in for a charcoal fire, this will act as your fire starter and allows you to recycle items you would have disposed of anyway
  3. If kebabs are on the menu, soak the skewers in water for at least 15 – 30 minutes before using to avoid them getting burned on the grill and breaking off when you lift them up to eat
  4. Checking propane tank levels has never been easier, heat up some water (not boiling but warm) and run down the side of a cooled tank, then run your hand down that same side…where you feel that the tank goes from warm to cold will show you the level of propane left. Please remember to do this before turning on the tank for grilling.

In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy.

-Bobby McFerrin

This August, we celebrate happiness through “Happiness Happens” month! The lyrics above communicate this idea to the fullest! While we all have trials and tribulations in our daily lives, it is important to find joy at any point and any time. Don’t always look to the future wishing to breeze through your life, instead live in the here and now. Like attracts like so when you change your mindset to choose happiness, good things and energy will come your way!

What are your tips for finding happiness in your everyday life?
