Summertime, and the grilling is easy ... at least for Howard Taylor, of Kaysville, who is known as a grill master around his friends and family. On a recent summer evening he shared some of his expertise in an informal neighborhood class in his backyard.
A few of his tips:
* Invest in a good grill that cooks evenly. His Weber grill is pricey, but it cooks evenly in every spot on the grill. Many grills have hot spots -- one burger is still raw on one side, while another burger burns. The cook spends much of the cooking time shifting the items around the grill.
"For those who have grills with hot spots, you have to get to know your grill and know where the hot spots are so you can move things around as they cook," he said.
