Grill Cook Job Description
Grill Cook Job Description (

If a grill cook is working at a restaurant known for its grilled entrées, he will probably need either a culinary degree or certificate or substantial grilling experience in a commercial kitchen. If working in a restaurant that offers grilled food in addition to many other types (pastas, salads, pizzas, sandwiches and soups), a grill cook may not require so much experience and expertise. Regardless, grill cooks spend most of their time behind, you guessed it, a grill.

Grills Food

Grill cooks are required to grill each piece of meat to each customer's specifications (rare, medium, well done). This takes training and practice.

Presents Grilled Food

Grill cooks may have to present the cooked food on customers' plates. Doing so requires on-the-job training (because each restaurant will likely want their entrees presented differently) and attention to detail.

Carves Meat

Depending on the types of meat offered by the restaurant, grill cooks may be required to grill large pieces of meat and carve them when finished.

Manages a Team

If working in a large kitchen, grill cooks may have their own team of prep and line cooks who must be managed appropriately.
