You put all vegetables directly on the grate

THE RESULT: Small items fall through the grate.

THE FIX: Grilling isn’t just for hefty hunks of meat. Everything from asparagus to scallops can benefit from time on the grill, so don’t let the grate hold you back. Skewers are often helpful, but they aren’t your only option. A grill basket is the easiest way to infuse small bites with smoky flavor. Choose a nonstick version, and you can simply toss in smaller or more delicate food for hassle-free grilling.
