flare ups!

Hi, I just got a new grill I have been grilling up a storm.
Is it advisable to put foil or a drip pan of some sort
under the meat to catch grease? I had so many flare ups
with my steaks and pork this week and thought that maybe
that would be the solution. Any advice would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks, SK

My husband doesn't use a drip pan on his grill. He does keep a squirt bottle filled with water next to the grill. When flare ups happen a few quick squirts and the flare is gone. NancyLouise

RE: flare ups!

The leading cause of flair ups is a build up of grease in the grill. When you have to grill directly over the fire, make sure it is clean and keep the lid closed.

RE: flare ups!

Especially with steaks and pork chops, I cut all the fat off the
side and then put those pieces on top of the meat.

Really cuts down on the flare-ups.

Plus, you still get the flavor of the fat because it bastes
the meat as it cooks.
