Watch Chef Billy Olivia Cook Up Some Mouth-Watering Burgers
First up on the menu: hamburgers!
"The first thing is you want to get quality chop meat," said Chef Billy Oliva.
Oliva recommends a chop meat blend of 80% beef and 20% fat. Remember to season well with sea or kosher salt and white pepper.
Another tip: place the burger on a hot grill, not over an open flame.
The internal temperature of a burger is very important. To be absolutely certain it's safe enough to eat, use a cooking thermometer.
Chef Oliva says you should give burgers a chance to cook.
"Don't poke it," says Oliva. "That just pushes all the juice out of it. Then you are going to end up with a hockey puck."
The bigger the burger the more time it needs on the grill.
The government recommends an internal temperature of 160 degrees or higher.
And Chef Oliva has a tip for cooking hot dogs too: once they split, they’re ready.
Compliment the BBQ with grilled corn and chicken kabobs, and make sure that potato salad and cold slaw are kept cold.
Now you have a Memorial Day feast that is yummy and safe to eat!
