Apartment Grilling Station Tips

A Little Bit of Summer to Take You Well Into Fall

Just because the hot, sunny days of summer are behind us doesn't mean you can’t still take advantage of one of the best parts of summer: grilling! Union Green’s outdoor grilling stations let you keep enjoying those flame-grilled burgers, hot dogs, and veggie options well after the temperature starts to drop. Make sure you have everything you need to make the most of this useful amenity!

Stay Safe

When working the grill, there are some tools you should always have close at hand for safety’s sake. These items will ensure your food is delicious and safe and that you’re protecting yourself:


  • Meat thermometer: Take the guesswork out of food safety. Cook all of your meat to the recommended internal temperature, and verify quickly with an instant-read meat thermometer.

  • Grilling gloves: The weather may be cool, but the grill is hot! Protect your hands with gloves rated for use with grilling.

  • Shatter-proof plates: Don’t risk your good dishes. In the event of a stumble or drop, shatter-proof plates will keep you from having to deal with ceramic shards or replacement dishes. 

  • Grill apron: Aside from protecting you and your clothes from splatters or spills, a grill apron with pockets will give you somewhere to stash your grilling tools as you cook.

Gear Up

In addition to safety concerns, grilling requires some specialized cooking tools, so make sure you’re prepared with everything you need to be a real grillmaster:


  • Long-handled tongs and spatula

  • Basting brush

  • Grill basket for fish or veggies

  • Grill brush


When grilling meat, remember to use only clean tools to handle cooked food.

Save Yourself a Trip

When you’re cooking outside of your own kitchen, an easy-carry caddy makes it simple to bring all the tools you need back and forth in one trip. Transporting your ingredients in a small cooler or closed container means no balancing act, and your food stays safe and sanitary the whole time.

Get Creative 

Burgers and hot dogs aren’t the only things you can grill. Experiment with grilled veggies and fruits for a twist on some of your favorite recipes. Also, consider using the grill in your weekly meal prep – get multiple meals’ worth of flavorful chicken, shrimp, potatoes, and more all at once without taking up stovetop space!
