3 Reasons You Want to Sharpen Your Knives Before You Hit the Grill
A high-quality grill may be the number one tool for backyard cooking, but a very sharp knife is also important. Here are three times you are going to be happy that you took a few seconds to sharpen your knives before cooking in the backyard.
1. Slicing into Meats
Whether you butcher your own meats before tossing them on the grill or you want perfectly sliced meat when it comes off the grill, your only option is a sharp knife. You don’t want to spoil the quality of the meal through inferior cuts.
2. Prepping for Kebabs
Slicing your meats and vegetables with uniform cuts is the only way to ensure everything will cook evenly. To get that kind of precision cut, you need to have a sharp knife. Kebabs are a great way to try out flavor combinations of proteins and vegetables or even fruits.
3. Perfect Cocktail Garnishes
The perfect slice of lemon, lime, or orange makes an appealing topping for just about any summer cocktail. So before you make a batch cocktail for your next backyard bash, be sure to sharpen those knives and create some perfectly sliced citrus rings.
