Crisco® Grilling Tips

Dust off the grill and turn up the heat! Grilling Season is here and so is backyard grilling, one of America’s most anticipated pleasures.

The makers of Crisco recognize the importance of the grilling ritual for the American family, so we have prepared a full course of tips and tools along with delicious recipes featuring Crisco oils and sprays.

To get things cooking, here are some quick tips from the chefs at Crisco for easy grilling and summer entertaining:


Store grilled vegetables in the fridge for up to three days as an easy way to have ingredients on hand for a delicious grilled summer salad. Vegetables don’t have natural oils, so remember to lightly coat the cut vegetables with Crisco Vegetable Oil or Crisco No-Stick Cooking Spray to protect the skin from drying and burning.
Spray the cool, clean grill rack with Crisco No-Stick Cooking Spray before heating the grill to prevent food from sticking and ensure easy clean-up.
To seal and enhance the natural flavors of food, spray or coat meat, poultry and seafood with Crisco Vegetable Oil or Crisco No-Stick Spray before seasoning.
Shish kabobs are a simple, no-fuss meal, perfect for a quick summer dinner. Spray metal skewers with Crisco No-Stick Spray, so that cooked items will slide off easily.
Meats, seafood and vegetables can steam instead of grill if they are too close together on the grill. To ensure even grilling, leave some space between items, whether on skewers or lined up on the grill rack.
When cooking meat, such as steak, use high heat and turn only once or twice while grilling. This sears the outside of the meat while sealing in flavor and preventing sticking.
Avoid puncturing grilled meats with a fork, which can let juices and moisture escape. Instead, use grilling tongs coated with Crisco No-Stick Cooking Spray to turn meat with ease.
Fish has a tendency to dry out and break into small pieces when grilling. Brush on fresh lemon juice and wrap in aluminum foil sprayed with Crisco No-Stick Cooking Spray to keep the fish moist. If using a grill basket, be sure to spray the basket as well.
Grilled corn on the cob is a perfect accompaniment to a summer meal. Spray corn with Crisco Butter flavor No-Stick Cooking Spray and top with your favorite spices for a simple and nutritious side dish. Use salt and pepper for a classic taste or give your corn a southwestern twist with chili powder and grated cheese.
