HUDSON VALLEY, NY — Are you going to fire up the grill over the Memorial Day weekend? Of course you are. But do you have questions about how to turn out the perfect steak, ribs or barbecue chicken for your friends and family?
Well, if you do, the Grill Masters at LongHorn Steakhouse can help you out.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, Monday, May 28 Longhorn’s “Grill Us” Hotline will return for the sixth year nationwide.
Experts will be standing by on that day to help you prepare for cookouts.

The number to call is 1-855-LH-GRILL (544-7455) to speak directly with a certified LongHorn Steakhouse Grill Master.
Over the years, Grill Masters have gotten plenty of questions, ranging from grilling basics to hard-core techniques.

  • Grill Open vs. Grill Closed — It depends on what’s going on the grill. For steaks, boneless chicken, pork, fish or vegetables, keep the grill lid open. Close it if you are making bone-in chicken or hamburgers.
  • Grilling a Lot of Steaks at Once — Set up temperature zones on the grill. Designate a “hot zone,” and heat it to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Then create a “warm zone” on a quarter of the grill, and set the temperature between 100 and 150 degrees. When a steak reaches the right temperature, move it to the “warm zone” so it stays hot but doesn’t get overcooked.
  • Making a Great Grill Seasoning — Try “The Big Four,” a mixture a salt, pepper, granulated onion powder and granulated garlic powder. Pat the mixture into both sides of a cut of meat, and don’t be shy with the seasoning.

LongHorn’s Grill Us Hotline will also be open for advice on the Fourth of July and Labor Day.
There are LongHorn Steakhouses in Newburgh in Orange County and Yonkers in Westchester County. There is also one in Elmhurst, Queens.
