For many couples who are planning a backyard wedding. Or entertaining wedding guests before or after in your back yard, this usually means hosting barbeques.

Here are some easy tips for full-proof grilling.

Prep. A little planning goes a long way. A gas grill will take longer to heat up on a cold day than it does in the summer heat. Make sure your dinner guests are not waiting around and factor in the extra time you will need to get that grill sizzling.

Start adding flavor early with a bold rub or marinade. Impress your guests with a tried and true favorite seasoning. Using a rub or marinade prior cooking helps expand the molecules of your meat so more flavor can be absorbed.

Fan the flames. You will use additional gas or charcoal to keep your grill at ideal temperatures when the weather is still cool. Ensure you have a backup gas tank or additional chimney of coals ready, just in case they are needed.

Big Bold Flavors. Once the meat is on the grill, keep the flavor strong by brushing with leftover marinade or a bold sauce. Add a kick while grilling with your spicy sauce. Take it up another notch by topping your meat again after grilling.

Light it up. Days are longer in the summer, but a late dinner may mean you are grilling while the sun sets. Keep your grilling area well lit so you can keep an eye on the color and texture of your food to avoid overcooking.

The grilling experts at Broil King provide some tips and techniques to help you achieve restaurant-quality results at home for entertaining wedding guests.

A cut above: Determining the right cut of steak for your guests can be a difficult decision. Many steak lovers will tell you the best cut for the grill is the rib eye. Meat from the rib section is fattier than other cuts, giving the rib eye the perfect combination of tenderness and flavor.

One important tip to remember when searching for the perfect steak is to look for marbling. Marbling is thin white flecks of fat throughout the beef, which keep the meat juicy while maximizing flavor on the grill.

Preparation: It is important to let your steak come to room temperature before grilling. Attempting to grill the steak while it is still partially frozen will cause the steak to cook unevenly. Season the steak with salt and large grains of pepper to give it a nice bit of heat. Pre-heat your grill on high to get it to searing temperatures – 400-500 degrees. Let the grill heat completely before placing the steak on.

Grilling Technique: The chefs at Broil King developed the ten and two grilling technique. Grill the steak at the ten o’clock and two o’clock positions of the barbecue for two minutes on each side. Cooking times will vary based on the thickness of the steak, and outside temperature. You want to let your steak develop a seared crust on the grill before flipping it. Grills designed with a close bottom cook box, allow you to sear your steak with the lid up or down.

Before Serving: Once it is ready, let it rest for five minutes before serving. This maximizes the flavor by letting the juices move back into the steak.
