With Father’s Day just around the corner, chances are most of the local lunch and dinner spots are already booked, and likely to be incredibly crowded with long wait lists on the day itself. However, if you haven’t made reservations yet, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost for a memorable Father’s Day. This year, why not surprise the Dad in your life with a grill out party, where the only thing he has to do (for a change) is to sit back and relax. Not an experienced grill cook? No problem. Here are a few tips to get the best meal off the grill for Dad:
Choose something simple
Unless you’re an experienced cook, it might be a good idea to stick with something simple. Hot dogs and burgers are always a popular choice, and fairly simple to make. Never grilled hot dogs or hamburgers before? This article has a few tips to get the most out of this basic yet sumptuous grill meal. Feeling adventurous and want to try something a little bit more advanced? You’ll find some great ideas here, like the Spicy Pulled Pork or the Beer Can Chicken.
Don’t forget to season your dish before grilling
While this might not apply to hot dogs, you’ll find you can add a great deal of flavor to other meats with just a dash of seasoning. You don’t want to season the meats too far in advance, as that can dry out the meat. Instead, put on a little salt and pepper or your other spices of choice just before you’re ready to pop it on the grill. Barbecue sauce is always a great choice as well, particularly when grilling – unlike with dry seasonings, though, you’ll want to brush on a little sauce near the end, so the sauce doesn’t burn while the meat’s cooking.
Find a great place to grill out
While you’re cooking, you’ll want to make sure you’re somewhere where the Dad in your life can relax in style – and Decron makes a perfect location for that. Most of our apartment communities feature dedicated BBQ areas, often located somewhere serene, near a pool or a park, making it the perfect place to enjoy a cool drink and the scent of barbecue in the air, for a fantastic Father’s Day he won’t soon forget.
