loves a good barbecue. But once in while, we get that itch
when we just want everything to be absolutely perfect - from
the bbq marinade to the the barbecue meat to the paper plates
and cups. Speaking of barbecue meat, there are some things
you should consider when choosing meat to help bring out the
perfect flavor of the barbecue.
In general, the most common barbecue meat choices are beef,
pork and poultry, with each type of meat having something
different to offer to the palate. As a general rule, select
meats that were derived from younger animals since these would
be tender and more flavorful.
Barbecue meat tip # 1. Beef cuts ideal for barbecues are the
New York strip, Filet Mignon and Rib eye. The appropriate
thickness of the beef should be about a full inch. A little
seasoning rub helps bring out the natural flavor of the beef
without overpowering it.
Barbecue meat tip # 2. Poultry is another barbecue favorite
that can either be in the form of duck, chicken, game hen
or even turkey. Choice cuts of poultry like wings, legs and
thighs can be marinated or flavored using a dry spice rub.
Chicken breasts can also be seasoned in the same way before
Barbecue meat tip # 3. Pork is a barbecue staple enjoyed by
everyone. It is the simplest type of meat to barbecue. To
appreciate the flavor of pork, choose lean cuts like tender
chops and spare ribs or baby back ribs seasoned with spices
or barbecue sauce.
For an all-around sauce, try the Jim Bean Honey BBQ Sauce
and Maguire's Irish BBQ Sauce. They are two exceptional sauces
that can be used for any type of meat even fish.
On the other hand, the Bone Suckin' Sauce Rib Rub, the Cowtown
BBQ Seasoning and the Habanero Seasoning from Hell are multi-purpose
dry rubs that can be used to season everything from beef,
pork, poultry, fish as well as eggs and pasta.
