With summer officially approaching, it is safe to say barbecue season is here. Much effort goes into the planning and preparation of a good barbecue. There is the decision of what meat you will grill and even what theme to choose. To relieve some of the stress here are a few tips on executing a successful summer barbecue.
When it comes to barbecuing it is all about the flavor. Make sure to marinate your meat at least 5 hours before you plan to grill it. And if you really have time, 12 hours will ensure a more tender and flavorful meat for you and your guests.
To take your meat to the next level provide your guests with a side BBQ sauce to keep the flavor flowing.
Pro tip: Consider adding Mesquite Wood such as a hickory flavored wood. This is sure to impress your guests.
Have plenty of libations. From water to soda, beer and wine, make sure there is something for everyone and that it’s perfectly chilled for the hot summer days.
Have Sides. Even the perfect meat needs a little something on the side to give it that extra flavor. Serving salad is not only easy but also a crowd pleaser. The best part of serving salad is that your guests will feel like they are eating something healthy and probably let them enjoy the meat even more.
Last but not least have fun! There is plenty of planning that goes into trying to execute the perfect barbecue and with that comes stress. At the end of the day it is all about the company.
