Gordon Ramsay Shares Advice For A Successful 4th Of July Cookout!

(FOX) Head chef Gordon Ramsay shares his grilling-tips for a “Hell’s Kitchen” approved Fourth Of July barbeque! All-new episode of Hell’s Kitchen airs tomorrow at 8/7c on FOX! Charcoal Grill or Gas Grill? Gordon’s Tip: “I prefer a charcoal grill, because using charcoal brings out that great charcoal flavor, no matter what you’re cooking. You can use any flavor of charcoal, like hickory, and it will bring out a nice flavor to your finished product. The benefit of charcoal is the flavor it brings out, and you can control the intensity of the fire. Some may find cooking with charcoal difficult, because you need to know how to build a fire, feed your fire and control it. Gas grills are easier to use, because the heat is manageable and there’s barely any mess! Cooking a Juicy Steak Gordon’s Tip: “Let your steak set at room temperature for at least 45 minutes to an hour before cooking. Many people cook their steaks straight from the refrigerator which leads to uneven cooking. If you let the steak get to room temperature first, it will help obtain even cooking and great grill marks!” A Flavorful Hamburger Gordon’s Tip: “Buying a great blend of burger … Continue reading
