How to Sear Meat & Prep Your Grill {Cooking 101}

Hi everyone! Here is a video the Hubs shot of me outside on our grill. Here I show you how to properly sear meat and prep your grill. You want to get a good sear with your grill because this will ensure that your piece of meat has a nice caramelized exterior with that great smoky flavor from the grill. It will also make the inside perfectly moist and juicy! YUMMM!

When grilling I always need the following items:

Grill Brush

Clean Towel

Two Pairs of Tongs

Clean Plate


Water Bottle

Items being cooked

Make sure to watch the video to see how I use all of these items. If you haven’t already, go check out my recipe for The BEST Grilled Chicken Tacos, I used the chicken in the video to make them! And, they really are the best we have ever tasted! To see how I cut up a whole chicken into parts for the recipe go watch my other video How to Cut a Whole Chicken.ย  Thanks so much for reading/watching!

    YUM! I’m so glad you did this video – I always turn the chicken too many times, so it just ends up being charred on the outside! haha! Such good tips! ๐Ÿ™‚
