BBQ – Grilling Meat – Men And Vegetables – 4th Of July Celebration

When starting your BBQ fire, Use common sense, Don’t burn your house or patio down.
Keep your grill well away from your home.
Don’t try to BBQ in the shade of your 100 year old trees, the heat is not good for the tree and sometime you may even set you tree on fire!
Only use charcoal lighter fluid to start the fire in your BBQ grill. (No Gasoline) please.

Store unused charcoal starter fluid well away from your grill and out of the reach of children and pets.

Along with all that burned well cooked burgers, hotdogs and steaks add a few special treats in the way of grilled vegetables. Cut your vegetables at least 1/2 inch thick and in sizes that will prevent them from falling through the grill into your BBQ grill fire box.

* Vegetables should be brushed with olive oil or tossed in a bit of olive oil until lightly coated.
* Sprinkle your vegetables with herbs and spices that you like.
* Salt after removing vegetables from your grill. Salting before grilling draws out moisture from your vegetables to quickly.
* Place small vegetables on skewers or use a grilling basket. Larger pieces can be place right on the grill.
* Turn vegetables frequently and brush with additional olive oil to prevent them from drying out and becoming tough.
* Remove vegetables when the skin begins to blister and the middle becomes soft. Take care not to burn your vegetables.
** Different vegetables will take different amounts of time to cook. Plan on grilling vegetables for 5 to 20 minutes.

*** Hint: A vegetable marinade should be mostly oil with lemon or lime juice and your desired seasonings. Watch vegetables on the grill closely to avoid excessive charring.

Take a moment or two to remember all the men and women that have given so much in order that we may now celebrate our independence day Without fear or oppression.

    Thanks for giving us more vegie grilling tips. I never knew about grilling baskets.


  2. Another great post, and great ways to stay safe this holiday! It is always a good reminder to be safe, rather than sorry. My brother-n-law just got burned from a gas can blowing up and has 3rd degree burns on both his legs and feet (melted his tennis shoes to his feet) and is in the burn unit right now. Please wish him well for a fast recovery after he receives the skin graphs he needs. Stay Safe!


    • Re: Nikitaland
      A good example how quickly 1 small common sense mistake can result in serious injuries. I hope to soon hear that your brother-n-law is back on his feet.
      Be Safe and have a happy 4th of July
