Hot Summer Grilling Tips from Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse Executive Chef



Summer is upon us and we’re bringing the heat on a favorite summer pastime—grilling. Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar’s very own Executive Chef Russell Skall would like to share tips and tricks on how to create the perfect barbecue. From the ideal meat cuts selection to the tastiest marinades and rubs! Here are a few tips to get you started


  •    Crank up the Heat! – A hot grill will get you the best results! Make sure you spend some time pre-heating your grill for around 15-20 minutes to make sure it reaches the ideal temperature. This ensures perfectly seared food that is perfectly charred on the outside but still juicy on the inside!


  •    Patience Pays Off – Let your meat rest before carving. Letting a steak rest for 10 minutes allows juices to redistribute, keeping your steak juicy and tender.


  •     Sour Means Tender – Marinades can do wonders for your food. Adding acidic liquids like vinegar or lemon juice to your marinade can work as a tenderizer to make tougher cuts of meats more enjoyable
