Summer Grilling Guide

Summertime means grilling time. After all, is it really summer until you’ve fired up the Weber for the first time? To make sure you are armed and ready, Joe’s executive chefs have created a summer grilling guide, providing you tips and tricks to take your summer barbecues to the next level.

Always remove meat from the fridge 30 minutes before grilling in order to ensure it comes up to temp. It will help the meat to cook more evenly. – Mark Lord, Joe’s Las Vegas Executive Chef

Maintaining a clean grill will result in a higher quality product. Debris left in grill will continue to char and could add off flavors to your food. Heat will maintain more consistent if your working with a clean grill. – Justin Diglia, Joe’s Chicago Executive Chef

Always use a thermometer to temp your steaks. 125 degrees is a good medium. Use that as a benchmark, and remember steaks tend to go up 5-10 degrees after you take them off the grill. – Chris Morvis, Joe’s DC Executive Chef 

I always keep a spray bottle of water near by to put out any flare ups. Charred meats = bitter flavor. – M.L.

You don’t cook with your oven door open, so similarly you don’t want to grill with the top open. Keeping the grill closed helps control and regulate the heat. – J.D.

Don’t babysit the meats. Avoid constantly opening the lid and flipping or moving the meat around. Flip meats once and let the grill do the work. – M.L.

It’s one of the simplest tips, but also one of the biggest mistakes people make: rest your steak after removing it from grill. This allows juices to redistribute and ensures you don’t leave all the flavor on the plate from cutting into it too soon. – C.M. 

A go-to, affordable cut of meat to feed the family? Tri Tip! Just be sure to cut against the grain. And for dessert: Honey and Bourbon Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream. Toss peaches in honey, bourbon brown sugar and cinnamon. Grill 2-3 minutes and serve over vanilla ice cream! – M.L.

Happy Grilling!

Bloomberg Pursuits: The Best Steaks in Chicago

From Bloomberg Pursuits: Joe’s might be best known for its crab claws (the Miami flagship is the second-highest-grossing restaurant in the country, after Tao in Vegas. But Boston’s Ken Oringer favors the River North location for the opportunity to have the ultimate surf and turf meal. “For steak, I go to Joe’s Stone Crab,” enthuses Oringer. “Any place where I can get stone crab like Joe’s to start a meal and finish with a porterhouse (30 oz, $74.95) is the perfect spot for me. I go for their prime dry aged corn fed beef; it’s got a secret seasoning salt.”
