Bring steaks and pork chops to room temperature before grilling them. Keep fish and chicken refrigerated.
Season foods generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
Be sure to preheat the grill to medium-high before you begin.
When searing foods, always keep the lid open.
Don't flip food often or move it around (unless you are doing so to avoid flare-ups).
Let steaks, chops, and chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.
