We all love sausages but not everyone can grill them to perfection. A lot of us end up burning the sausage that not only destroys the appearance but also ruins the taste.
When you think of it, grilling sausages is easy. Just put the delicious sausages on the grill and you’re ready to go. But sadly, it isn’t as simple as it sounds here.
You need to be careful when grilling sausages so that you do not end up burning the casings or dying ‘em out. Let’s check out three of the best sausage grilling methods that can be used to grill all kind of sausages, from breakfast sausages to big ones:
The first on the list is the traditional way of preparing sausages. Just put the sausages on the grill and let the grill do its job. However you need to make sure not to burn the surface.
Many people end up with burnt surfaces but raw middle. This is usually due to high heat. However, there may be some other problems as well. Sausages are juicy and this juice can cause flare ups.
The key lies in keeping the heat low. This will increase cooking time, but you will get perfectly grilled sausage. Also, do not put any cut on the skin. Many people use this trick to grill quickly, but it ends up spoiling the taste and may also cause fires.
In this method, you need to keep the final delivery in mind as well. If you are anyway going to chop the sausages, then any method that does not destroy the flavor will do. However, if you need straight sausages then make sure not to spoil the appearance.
Split and Grill
In this method, you have to cut the sausages about 80% (lengthwise) to lay them flat on the grill. When you lay the sausages skin side up, the inside gets grilled quickly. This method also prevents the skin from dying out. However, since you are cutting the sausages, the juices will drip out.
You need to control the heat to prevent fires and get ready to compromise a bit on the taste. This method is good for when you need chopped sausages, but may not be suitable for all dishes.
Boil and Grill
In this method, sausages are first parboiled. However, make sure not to use just water to do so. Only using water to prepare the sausages will suck out the flavor.
The key is to have 50% beer and 50% water. You can also add other ingredients to improve the taste. The boiling takes only a few minutes.
Take out the sausages just as the skin begins to tighten and the fat begins to liquefy. Next, put these sausages on the grill to cook and make sure to keep the fire low.
This method can be used be beginners as it keeps the casings soft and also prevents juice from leaking out.
