Barbecuing is more than just an occasional occurrence for Texans — it’s an essential pastime. And even though social distancing is important, you don’t have to let this summer go by without firing up the grill and trying some tasty recipes with your partner or family. Here are some tips for great grilling to step up your barbecue game in Kerrville.
Use smarter skewers
If you’re making kabobs, avoid the hassle of soaking skewers each time you need them. Instead, soak a lot of them for about an hour, then drain and freeze them. That way when you need skewers, just pull out as many as you need and keep the rest in the freezer for future grill-out sessions.
Apply rubs gently
Use a light touch when applying a dry rub seasoning and avoid using too much of it. This will help protect the meat fibers from damage and minimize the chance that you’ll over-season the meat.
Time the sauce
Refrain from saucing the ribs too early in the cooking process, which can burn the sugars in the sauce. Instead, apply sauce sometime during the last 30 minutes of cooking, to keep the meat tender and the sauce wet.
Give the meat a break
After you’ve finished cooking the meat, let it rest before serving it. This will allow the meat to reabsorb and distribute the juices so that each bite will be as moist and flavorful as possible when you finally get to sink your teeth into it.
