Summer BBQ Tips: How to Keep Meat From Sticking to The Grill Aired July 15, 2019

In honor of grilling season, our studio audience grilled "Top Chef" star Richard Blais in all things BBQ — and first up was a frustration that we've all experienced, no doubt.

Q: When I grill, I use a lot of marinated meats. How do you prevent the meat from sticking to the grill?

A: "It's pretty simple," Richard says. "[A] hot, hot grill." 

"Right before you go to cook something," he goes on, "give it a little kiss on the grill to see if it's sticking."

If it sticks, you know the grill isn’t hot enough so give it a few more minutes. If it doesn’t stick, you’re good to go.

Just like you'd do if you were cooking something like fish in a pan at home, the chef notes. 

Plus, just as Richard does with his skewer recipes — like these Chicken Tandoori Skewers — use tongs to clamp on a paper towel and rub olive oil onto your grill grate to make it nonstick.
