Whether you’re a pro at cooking on the summer barbie, or you’re in charge for the first time and are just hoping for the best, here are some great tips to help you be the BBQ king this year!
Cook it like a pro
If you’re a seasoned professional (haha see what we did there…), you know how to get it just right, but if not, maybe do a practice one first! Make sure you use a thick piece so that you have more chance of getting that sweet balance of charred but juicy. Oil the meat and not the grill, and only season the meat with salt and pepper at the last minute otherwise it’ll go dry.
Splash out on the meat
No matter how epic your barbie skills, if you don’t have the right cut of meat, it’s just not going to work. If you really want to impress your guests, fork out a bit more for the best quality cuts and really show off your barbie prowess. If you’re worried about costs, the next tip will help!
Get people to chip in
We don’t mean cash (but of course that’s always welcome, right?), but get your guests to bring a plate of their specialty dish. That way you won’t have to worry about anything except getting that meat spot-on. Plus you know it’s going to be good if it’s your guests’ signature dish!
Season to perfection
Never underestimate the power of a good seasoning – it’s a great achievement to cook the meat perfectly, but it’s gotta be tasty too! Grab some seasoning that’s designed specifically for BBQ meat.
