JACK’s Best BBQ Tips & Tricks

Insider tip:
If you want to trim those eyebrows a little, turn gas on high and ignite!

Jeff W. (JACK Program Director):
Use half an onion to clean your grill. Works great!

Corbet (JACK Assistant Program Director & National Music Director):
Don’t over flip the burgers!! Flip em once (twice tops) and never press them. Squeezes all the meat juice out!

Billy (JACK Promotions):
Add your preferred cooking oil to your meat before you add to the grill, prevents it from sticking. Cook meat once it’s hit room temperature to allow it to cook evenly. Then to make sure your meal stays nice and tender, baste while you cook, brush butter onto each side of your meat while it’s finishing on the grill.

Marcy (JACK Promotions):
Make sure you take the cover off the barbeque and double check your propane tank to make sure you have enough.


One of the most important parts of having a good BBQ is the music! We’re always playing what we want while we cook what we want.
