Grilling Tips from Mike Davis (Giveaway!)

Father's Day is a time to spend with family. Dad's like to fire up the grill, but grilling can lead to heartburn which can lead to a not-so-happy cookout! Mike Davis, the National Champion Pit Master of Lotta Bull BBQ in Oklahoma shared some secrets for my readers on how to grill in how demand this Father's Day!

Here's Mike Davis' tips:

*When cooking larger cuts of meat, always use an indirect heat as a source. Using the direct heat method will char the outside of the meat without allowing the inside to cook properly.
*When grilling, use a "smoker" box of aromatic hardwoods such as mesquite, hickory or pecan to give that distinctive wood smoked flavor.
Use olive oil or any other cooking oil to coat the surface of vegetables to add crispness and to hold on spices and seasonings.
*Using a spray or baste during cooking will help keep the meat moist and flavorful and will help to keep the meat from drying out during the cooking process.
*A mustard slather can be used to thoroughly coat the meat to help hold spices and seasonings in place during preparation.
*Pay careful attention to pork and poultry when grilling, you must make sure both meats are properly cooked through.
*Always grill in a well ventilated area, away from eaves and overhangs that can trap toxic fumes.
*Just like I prepare for my competitions, frequent heartburn sufferers should come prepared to enjoy the foods you love and start your 14-day course of Prilosec OTC in advance of your BBQ event.

My dad was diagnoised with dementia about two years ago. My plans are to visit as I do each weekend. I take my two grand children with me. I want them to spend as much time with him as possible so I try to make every weekend Father's Day. There is not much he wants or needs however, he loves to go out to eat. With health care the way it is insurance does not cover medicine very well so it makes it hard on them. I am taking him about five gift cards so he and my mom can enjoy some dinners out.
