Grilling meat like sausages can be tricky — you want that delicious caramelization on the outside, but still want juicy, succulent meat inside. The Kitchn has a simple solution: poach your sausages before throwing them on the grill. It's key to keeping them juicy and getting a perfect char every time.

If you want to make it easier to put the sausages on the grill after poaching, or don't want to have to keep an eye on both the stove and your grill, you can poach the sausages directly on the grill. By poaching the sausages before grilling, you cook them through just a bit, which means you can pull them off the grill when they're perfect on the outside rather than waiting for the inside to finish cooking.
This also means they won't have to sit on the grill as long, so the inside will retain more moisture and be juicier.
