Why Baking a Cake on the Grill is Better Than The Oven

Published

As we set our sights on Summer in Bozeman, it’s time to break out the grills! Who doesn’t love a good barbecue? Grilling outside is a treat in itself, but what if we told you that you could make a cake on a grill? We’ll tell you how to bake a cake on your grill, plus other fun and bizarre grilling tips that’ll make you the go-to pro! Read on for fun grilling tips and techniques you probably never even thought of! And if you did, let us know! We love to be proven wrong when it comes to creative grilling. 

Why Baking a Cake is Better on the Grill

That’s right; you heard it here first! Well, maybe not first (obviously, you’re internet-savvy). Baking a cake on the Traeger or Weber is a great way to impress your friends and family at the next family gathering. “Anything you can bake in your indoor oven can be baked on a gas or charcoal grill, and you don’t even need to adjust the recipes.” This is straight from the pros at Weber!

But why grilling?  For one, it’ll keep your house cooler in those hot summer months, which is especially helpful if you don’t have AC. You also won’t need any fancy equipment to make it work. Just a good recipe, a great grill, and time to spend in your backyard! It’s a great excuse to get a party started and light up the grill!

 

Why Grilling is Better than Frying

We love food, grilled, fried, and everything in between. But we obviously have a soft spot for grilling. One of the best things about grilling is the ability to cook a variety of foods, including meats, veggies, and even fruits. It’s a versatile cooking method that allows you to experiment with different flavors and ingredients. Plus, it’s a great way to get creative with your meals and try out new recipes.

Grilling can also be a healthy way to cook! Frying foods comes with loads of oil, which can be high in calories and fat… and flavor. You don’t need as much oil when grilling, so it can be a lighter summer option! Of course, variety is the spice of life, and that goes for healthy fats, too! So don’t skip the oil completely. Who doesn’t love an ear of corn slathered in butter?!

Let’s not forget the taste! Grilling creates unique, delicious flavors in your food that just can’t be replicated with other cooking methods. The smoky flavor, the charred texture, and the grill marks all contribute to an unbeatable taste experience. Plus, it’s a great way to bring out the natural flavors in your food.

How Do You Grill the Perfect Burger?

What are the secrets to grilling the perfect burger? Nothing screams summer like the smell of juicy beef cooking on an open flame. But if you’re not careful, that burger can quickly turn into a dry, tasteless hockey puck. Fear not, my grill-loving friends, for I have the secret to grilling the perfect burger.

First things first – don’t be shy about the fat content. We know you’ve been told for years that leaner is better, but when it comes to grilling burgers (and for corn on the cob!), fat is your friend. Choose ground beef with a higher fat content, like an 80/20 blend, to keep your burgers juicy and flavorful. Trust us. Your taste buds will thank you.

Next, don’t over-handle your burgers. Resist the urge to mix in too many seasonings or to form them into perfect, symmetrical patties. This can lead to tough, dry burgers that nobody wants to eat. Keep it simple and just lightly season with salt and pepper, then form your patties with your hands gently. And for heaven’s sake, don’t press down on the burgers while they’re cooking! That just squeezes out all the precious juices and leaves you with a dry, sad burger.

Finally, use a meat thermometer to make sure your burgers are cooked to the proper temperature. No more guessing games or cutting into your burger to check the color – a meat thermometer takes all the guesswork out of it. Aim for an internal temperature of 160-165°F for a perfectly cooked, juicy burger!

Why Grilling Watermelon is the Best Summer Treat

When you think of grilling, you probably think of burgers, hot dogs, and steaks – but have you ever considered grilling watermelon? That’s right, this summertime staple is the perfect candidate for the grill, and here’s why.

First off, grilling watermelon brings out a whole new level of flavor that you just can’t get from eating it raw. The heat caramelizes the sugars in the fruit, creating a slightly smoky, sweet taste that is simply irresistible. It’s like a fruity dessert and a savory side dish all in one!

Not only does grilling watermelon add a new flavor profile, but it also creates a unique texture. The heat softens the flesh of the watermelon, making it slightly charred on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. It’s a textural experience that you won’t get from any other fruit.

And let’s not forget about the presentation. Grilled watermelon makes for a stunning, Instagram-worthy dish that is sure to impress your friends and family at your next summer gathering. Cut it into wedges, sprinkle on some sea salt or chili flakes for a little kick, and watch as everyone devours it in seconds.

Get fancy with some cinnamon and mascarpone on your grilled melon or simply some salt and lime. You’ll thank us later.

Why Should I Cover My Grill?

Covering your grill is important to protect it from the elements, such as rain, snow, and UV rays, which can cause rust, corrosion, and other damage to the grill’s components. It also helps keep the grill clean and free of debris, making it easier to use and maintain in the long run!

Why Should I Season My Grill?

Listen up, fellow grill enthusiasts – if you want to make sure your grill stays rust-free and non-stick-tastic, you need to season that bad boy. It’s like giving your grill a spa day, except instead of cucumber water and fluffy robes, you’re slathering it up with oil and heat.

But seriously, seasoning your grill is like putting a suit of armor on your grates. It helps protect against rust and corrosion, which is especially important if you live in a rainy or humid area. And let’s be real, nobody wants to eat rust flakes on their burgers.

Not only does seasoning your grill prevent rust, but it also creates a non-stick surface that makes cooking and cleaning a breeze. You’ll be flipping burgers like a pro and wiping down the grates with ease, all while feeling like a master chef in your backyard kingdom.

And if all that isn’t enough to convince you, think about the flavor, baby! When your grates are seasoned, you get that extra kick of smoky goodness that makes your food taste like it came straight from a fancy restaurant (or a hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint, depending on your flavor preference).
