5 Amazing BBQ Tips to Impress Your Family

If you’re a fan of some good BBQ meat and would like to master making some of the most delicious BBQ and impress your family and friends with your grilling skills, these 5 easy tips will help you out.

Make a DIY Smoker

Sure, you can invest some money into buying a smoker, but what if there’s a way to save money and make your own that will work great as well? All you need to have is a charcoal or gas grill. Take some aluminium and concoct your very own metal smoker box by making a double-layered pouch. Make sure to stuff the foil pouch with wood chips that you have soaked beforehand. This will ensure that they don’t burn up right away. Then, throw them in the coal or flame and place the meat away from the heat, on the other side of the grill.

Try a Science Experiment

In some cases, slow cooking barbecue on the grill can last up to 12 hours. You also run the risk of turning it into jerky if you do it at a temperature that is too high. So, here’s a little science trick that can help you out. Simply place a pan of water underneath the meat. The evaporating water will keep adding moisture to the meat while it’s getting grilled. It won’t compromise the flavour and texture, but it will keep the meat soft and prevent it from getting dry. On top of that, it will add a nice smoky flavour to the meat.

Marinate in Moderation

A lot of people think that it’s better to marinate the meat for a longer time. However, this is not true. The marinade will never be able to soak in deeper than the outer layer of the meat no matter how long you let the meat soak. Also, the acid in the marinade helps cook the outer side in advance, the surface dries out much faster. So, if you want to be sure, follow the rule of thumb: fish and chicken need less time in the sauce since they have lighter muscles, while denser beef and pork can soak overnight.

Have a Steak Strategy

There’s no better way to impress your friends and family than by knowing how to grill some delicious steaks. Steaks are usually on the pricier side, so you have to make sure you are investing money in high-quality. You can always order fresh meat online and have it delivered straight to your house when you plan to grill it. Also, try to avoid top cuts such as filet mignon or sirloin since they are too lean for the grill. A better option is a thick rib eye.
It’s important that you have a good steak strategy and know-how to prepare it. When grilling the steak, make sure to sear both sides over the flames. Once you are done, move the meat to the side and cover it with a lid to let it bake before serving it.

Finish Strong

Lastly, you’ve got to finish it with a bang. Don’t be scared to use BBQer’s crutch—aluminium foil and liquid after grilling. There is no better way to serve all of the delicious pork, ribs, or brisket than to wrap it up nicely in a few layers of aluminium foil and add apple juice or BBQ sauce. The meat will soak in the juices. This will make the meat extra tender before the serving. Let it sit in the sauces for at least an hour.


So, in conclusion, if you want to organise some cool BBQ time for you and your friends, these are some of the easiest, yet most useful tips to use if you want to grill some smoking good meat and impress your friends with your grilling skills.
