>> this is the abc7 spotlight, sponsored by cynch propane. ♪ >> i think people grill in general, and, you know, even why you should grill in some ways is, you know, you get an extra flavor that you can't get just by hitting something in a sauté or a skillet. you know, you get these charred, smokey flavors that really elevate, you know, whatever it is you're doing. i can be cooking these carrots in a sauté, but doing it this way, giving these flavors to it, you know, as well as it's something that's easy and relatively the cleanup's pretty simple, as well. you know, it's not cleaning your pots and pans. it's like, you know, you should not neglect your grill, cleaning of the grill, however the cleanup on this is a little bit easier. the great thing about grilling
is that, you know, you can do anything from fish to vegetables. you can do steak. you can do pork. you can do chicken. you can do large cuts. you can do small cuts. there's a wide range of things that you can do. your options for what you can eat and grill outside are essentially limitless. there's just so many options, and they're all great. so, this is derade. pretty simple. i just fill it with some herbs. let it marinate overnight. any white fish can do. i typically get like a meatier, heartier one, like a halibut or so. and, again, treating that just like i would a piece of meat. tie it. doesn't have to be tight. this way you can literally just cut, you know, some strings and then tie them individually. i just do it kind of like this so it's a little faster. biggest thing is just make sure you have a good amount of oil oil there as well as you have your fish really dry. so, here we are. we're gonna drop this guy on there. [ sizzling ]
and what i do typically is i just have it -- i kiss it on the one side and then flip it over and let it kind of cook the rest of the way. typically the lid's down. the thing with fish and most things when you're grilling or sautéing is you just want to keep enough room around it so it's not sucking all the heat away. flip it over, i drop the lid down, and just use it as an oven, and i lower the heat as well. and you can see, it's not really sticking at all. it's just slowly going. the way i brush all of my items on, whatever it is, a marinade or a mop, as you do with some items, i just take a herb bundle and i make a brush out of this, so i'll do like sage, rosemary, and thyme. take some butcher's twine, i'll wrap it around, and then i'll open up the sauce, dip it in, and i'll brush it that way.
so instead of just using the regular bristles that you have for most brushes, this is now imparting flavor. so when this heats up, the oils from these herbs heat up and start adding in these small nuances of flavor, so it's the small things that slowly build on and give you the finished result. when you're brushing a sauce on there, or grilling items, you just want to make sure you continue to build the layers of flavor on it. and that, for me, consists of if you're saucing it, whether it's barbecue sauce or whatever sauce it is, just putting it on there, once it starts getting dried out, like it becomes a little tacky on you, that's the perfect time. you add another coat on there, just like you're painting a house or so. add another layer on there, and then let it do its thing for another say five minutes. it'll become tacky again, and you keep doing it. this way, now when you're biting into it, you're biting through all these layers of flavor versus just, oh, there's my
sauce and there's my meat. every once in a while, i'll say dang. that means -- that's when it hits me. it's solid. when i see it, i'm like dang. that's pretty nice. [ laughs ] and so, for chicken as well, you know, there's a couple ways to see the doneness. i find that's kind of the -- an issue that, you know, people kind of run into and they ask me, like, how can you tell if it's done or not. you can always feel free to pull it off and see the juices. if the juices are running clear, then it's ready. if it still has pink in the juice, then it needs to probably go a little bit longer. oh, man. that's a good -- that's gonna be super good. ♪ >> make grilling easier with cynch propane. get your grill tank delivered straight to your home. home delivery is easy and convenient. plus, you can exchange any brand of tank. new customers get their first tank exchange for $10 with
