let the steak reach room temperature. I really don't know how or why this works, but steaks stay more tender and juicy this way
I heard the other day a commercial for a grocery store that "ages" its meat for two weeks. It supposedly makes the meat more tender. I am sure its done very safely, but that just doesn't sit well with me.

but I'm a charcoal/wood guy all the way.
This is also our preferred method.

My mom swears by boiling her chicken before grilling also. She says it stays juicy this way. Haven't tried that though.

I use a homemade cajun spice on everything, it's not too spicy and brings out the flavor of what ever your cooking.

Soak chicken overnight in Kraft roasted red pepper and parmesian italian dressing and add McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic Motreal chicken seasoning. You get awesome flavoring from the grill.

I'm a gas grill guy too. I grill 12 months a year, at least once per week even with 12' of snow.

For my typical burgers, I add garlic powder, minced onion and some black pepper to the meat, mix it, patty it, and grill it. It's not fancy, but it's tasty.

For chicken It all depends. I just tried the Sweet Baby Ray's marinade and it's pretty decent. I've also done the minced garlic, teriyaki and soy sauce route with much success.

Try everything once is my opinion.

If anyone wants my cajun spice mix just let me know. It's easy to make and it's some kind of good.
