You might already know how to freshen up your BBQ game and make some delicious grilled foods that keep guests more than satisfied at your place. However, it’s important to know the basics of what flavors really make a great BBQ experience. Here, we’re going to look at what flavors you should be incorporating, and why it’s important to have all of them there.
The best meats that you can get
This is the first and most important tip. You should always be careful about where you source your meat. You want to make sure that your chicken is at its freshest and that you get good cuts of meat. This is because the more frozen or dense the meat is, the harder it becomes for the flavors that we look at to seep into it. You want to make sure that every bite you offer is utterly packed with delicious flavor, so choosing quality meat is the essential first step.
Starting off with the obvious
You can’t host a BBQ and not expect to make a delicious, sticky, sweet, and savory BBQ sauce the main star of the show. Messy as it can be, it’s such a moreish taste for finger foods and there are two types of meat it suits best: chicken and ribs. This easy BBQ chicken thighs recipe will go over just about everything that you need to know about how to make your own phenomenal BBQ sauce and how to seal it into the meat just right that your chicken is going to be disappearing onto someone’s plate as soon as it’s ready.
Turn up the heat
BBQ sauce is fragrant and strong and a sweetly overpowering taste, so something to act as a palate cleanser can work very well to compliment it. A slice of great spicy meat can offer the heat to cut through just that. Rather than overloading your ribs with chili or the like, a good burger allows the eaters to balance as much spiciness as they want by mixing it with salad, slaw, or whatever else they want. Learn how to make a great jerk rub and slap it onto your burgers.
Zest it up
The two flavors above are quite heady and heavy flavors so you might want something lighter and more refreshing to keep alert in those hot summer days. Citrus flavors and zest are a great way to do just that, and you can make it available for just about any food by making your own lemon dipping sauce. You can make sure that you have a food that goes perfectly with the sauce, such as a steak skewer, but just keeping a dish of the sauce on hand, you’re likely to see guests reaching to dip their meat.
A good BBQ isn’t just a bunch of meats thrown over a grill. You need to make sure that each food you make offers a different flavor that contributes to the overall palate. That’s how you really master the BBQ.Love Lilla xx
