Grilling is the quick cooking of meat, fish or vegetables over intense heat. The source of the heat can be burning wood, simmering coals, a gas flame, or an electric heating element. A related method is broiling, but with broiling the heat source comes from the top instead of the bottom.

Adding Flavor

Items to be grilled can be flavored in a marinade or seasoned with a rub. They can be basted while cooking with any variety of flavorful sauces, or topped with a flavored butter before serving.
