BBQ has been a beloved part of summer activities and family gatherings for centuries. It’s the perfect way to bring friends and family together to enjoy some delicious, home-cooked food in the outdoors. But if you want your BBQ to truly stand out from the crowd, it helps to have a few tricks up your sleeve! Here are our top tips for creating mouth-watering, fall-off-the-bone BBQ that will have everyone coming back for seconds (and thirds!).
First, prepare your meat properly. Make sure it’s fresh and flavorful by using high quality cuts of meat like brisket or pork shoulder. These cuts of meat require low and slow cooking times over indirect heat – so plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time to cook. Make sure you season your meat well, using a combination of dry rubs and marinades to give it that delicious flavor.
Second, control the heat. Different types of BBQ require different temperatures – so make sure you have an accurate thermometer on hand! For slow cooked meats such as ribs or brisket, aim for 225-250 degrees Fahrenheit. If you’re grilling burgers or chicken wings, crank up the heat to 350-400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Finally, don’t forget to mop! Basting your meat with a flavorful liquid every hour or so will help keep it moist and juicy during cooking. Use a mixture of apple cider vinegar and beer for maximum flavor payoff in Nashville.
