However, what most people don't know is that it is an art assembled from simple techniques that can be mastered by anyone. Here are a few BBQ tips and BBQ recipes that will help you become a BBQ pro.

BBQ Tips

  1. Look for generously marbled steaks

In addition to selecting the right cut of meat, you should also choose meat that has plenty of white fibers because it is more likely to be tender, juicy and delicious after melting down.

  1. Bring the steaks to room temperature

Before cooking, remove the meat from the fridge like an hour earlier. This helps reduce thermal shock and ensures that the meat cooks evenly.

  1. Pick the Right Ingredients

For tenderizing purposes, you can choose marinades made with an acidic base such as wine, vinegar, and citrus juice. However, if you are one that fancies giving your meat a tasty exotic twist, then kiwi and pineapple will do the trick.

  1. Sprinkle some salt on your steaks before you cook them

A ¼ tablespoon of salt added to the steak half an hour before cooking helps your meat stay juicy and delicious.

  1. Get your BBQ ready

Before you start the cooking process, ensure that you have cleaned your grill with a paper towel soaked in oil so as to avoid a scenario where the steak sticks on the grill.

  1. Season the steak midway through cooking

Since adding spices too soon may diminish their taste, it is best to wait till your midway through cooking to add seasoning.

  1. Flip the steak at least once

Flipping the steak helps make it tender and gives your steak beautiful grill marks.

  1. Tread carefully when handling the steak

It is important to be careful especially when pressing the steak because doing it a bit too much may cause it to lose vital juices

  1. Touch the steak to determine whether it’s ready

For purposes of ensuring that the meat is done, touch each piece tenderly.

  1. Allow the steaks to relax before serving

Letting the steak rest before serving allows it to reabsorb juices and reach optimal tenderness.
