We love to BBQ over Labor Day weekend and for the tailgate season. We're happy LongHorn is having a grill hotline again. My hubby got some great tips last year. Now our chicken and steaks turn out perfect every time. He even got some tips on grilling fish.

Now here's some fun Tailgate Tips:

·         Prep whatever you can the day before.  For example, skewer the meat, slice the vegetables and pack your car.
·         Before you get started, prep the grill surface. Ensure your grill is hot (500°F) and cleaned with a wire brush. Place your hand 3 inches above the grates, and if you need to pull away before you count to 3, it’s ready to start grilling!
·         Boldly season. Don’t be shy when seasoning your steak! Try “The Big 4” – salt, pepper, granulated onion powder and garlic powder – coat both sides of the steak well.
·         Make sure you let your steaks rest for 2-3 minutes before serving. This will allow the juices to settle back into the meat, resulting in optimal flavor.
·         Don’t forget to turn the grill off when you leave your tailgate to go into the game!  Turn the gas off or cool and dump the charcoals in an appropriate receptacle—a metal bucket will work.

If you have any questions at all about grilling, don't hesitate to call this hotline.

We LOVE LongHorn Steakhouse! They have the best steaks in town! My hubby and I  are super excited to go there on a date soon.
