Grilling Tip: Place Quick-Cooking Foods Up Front

Although many think the only thing you should be concerned about when placing items on the grill is the temperature, we have one more tip to throw your way. Next time you load up the grill, save yourself (and your arm hair) the pains of reaching to the back of the grill and keep your quick cooking items up front for easy access!

When filling your grill up for summer get togethers, try putting on thicker and longer cooking items first and place them at the back of your grill grate. The closer you get to the front, place items that have shorter cooking times or will require more attention.

Hell hath no fury like an outdoor cook who just got their arm hair burnt off trying to flip the hot dogs while reaching over the chicken breasts and hamburgers.
