Make your own Barbecue Seasoning

You really enjoy getting out and barbecuing when you can. You know what makes the food much tastier. Of all the spices you use which spices do you enjoy the most?

The most common is crushed pepper. Crushed pepper really enhances the flavor of your grilled food. A close second is salt, I recommend that you watch the salt you put on the food before grilling salt brings moisture to the surface of the meat, and the water sits on the surface as you cook. This, you are basically steaming the meat. I know that we salt before cooking, but trust me use very sparingly – the result will be juicy, delicious entire to serve your family and guests! Salt after the meat is cooked to your liking, has rested the required time, and just before serving.

Another tasty grilled spice is garlic. “I never use garlic salt”, use granulated garlic, even better fresh crushed garlic. Remember when you use fresh ingredients especially garlic it will enhance your barbecue.

Hey, how about making and using your own rub! Would you like to use your own recipe ? You can use the recipe below to help you develop your own general rub by trying new spices into the recipe. Using a rub will enhance the flavor and texture of grilled meat.
