    I was just wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions that would help me my first time as a line cook on a grill station?

    I currently work as a saute line cook at a country club in FL but was offered a grill job in PA at another country club and took it! I will be working with veal, beef, lamb, pork etc..any help at all would be appreciated...thanks!

    You have no experience as a grill man, but you were offered the job and took it?.....several states away at that!  How does that work?

    I guess I didn't explain the situation thoroughly or at all for that matter. So from the beginning....I worked at the club in PA as a prep/banquet cook last summer but the club closes down in the winter and the Chef in PA knew a club in FL would be needing help so he sent my resume down and I started just three weeks after. So for the past 7 months I have been getting my first true line experience and the chef in PA was impressed with what he heard I had been doing, so he invited me back to work his line. So that lead me to this, I am excited but also extremely nervous about grilling. I've logged some hours on a grill but I am far from an expert.
