Avoid common grilling mistakes with these easy tips-
One of grilling's most appealing aspects is that it's a quick and relatively low-maintenance way of cooking food - making a summer barbecue an easy way to feed a small or large group of friends. But this fantastic dinner can easily go awry if the cook doesn't follow some basic grilling rules: Picture scorched eyebrows, blackened meat (not in the good way), or raw food all because of an empty propane tank.

Whether you're a charcoal kind of griller or a gas die-hard, a professional flame-tamer or first-timer, mistakes happen. We've listed some of the more common ones below and then talked to the Food Network's Aaron McCargo and cookbook author Sam the Cooking Guy to come up with some quick fixes (and preventative measures) for every cookout slip-up.
