Grilling tips from local BBQ champs

GRAND FORKS – (WDAZ-TV) -- If your family is headed outside to grill tonight, we've got some tips from some local barbecue champs.

Whether you're making a rack of ribs or grilling a chicken breast, cooks over at the Wild Hog in Grand Forks say, it's best to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature.

The restaurant prepares their barbecue sauce with a recipe based on vinegar. They say it keeps their customers coming back.

In their opinion, less is more when it comes to seasoning your food.

“You can go to the internet and find a variety of different spices rubs, whatever for your chicken, your brisket, pork butt,” said Tim Behm, general manager at Wild Hog Smokehouse Bar and Grill. “I think sometimes going lighter is better than going overboard with it.”

The grill masters believe placing ribs on the grill bone side down heats the meat to perfection.
