Perfect Grilled Sausages Start with Room Temperature
This initial step applies for all meats. It’s even easier for sausages, as well. You don’t usually need to leave it out for as long as other meats. Before you start grilling sausages, set them on the counter for 30 minutes. Room temperature sausages reduce your cooking time. They also allow for more evenly cooked grilled sausages.
When Grilling Sausages, Don’t Break the Casing!
If you break a fresh sausage, then you’re not doing it right! A grilled sausage needs the casing to hold all that good stuff in place. The casing holds in the fats and juices, Which help to make the taste and texture just right. Scoring the sausage also only serves to let the fat escape when cooking. It can also cause flare-ups, which will char the sausage on the outside before the inside is completely grilled through. So, when cooking sausages, never score or break them!
