Sauces for Grilling: Info and Tips

A sauce often defines great grilling. For a superior grilled dish and to get the most mileage from a grilling sauce, follow these tips.

Many grilling sauces use a combination of savory and sweet ingredients for their unique taste. Sweet ingredients add a fabulous depth to sauces. Be sure to put them on near the end of grilling -- sugar burns easily and may impart a bitter flavor to a sauce.

  • Sauces high in sugar can cause a sauce to burn on the meat's exterior before the meat is fully cooked.

  • Apply layers of sauce evenly to build up a glaze.
