Memorial Day BBQ Tips and Recipes


Memorial Day is right around the corner, which means grilling season has officially begun!

Ready to grill? Marinate First. Once you have your desired selection of meat, it's important to marinate it. Marinades add unique flavors and textures to grilled meat. A marinade is a highly seasoned liquid used to give flavor, and in some cases tenderize tough cuts of beef. Marinades usually consist of liquid such as water, fruit or vegetable juice, or oil, which is combined with seasonings and herbs. For tenderization, meats need to be marinated for at least 6-8 hours. For flavor, marinate meat for at least 15 minutes or longer. Allow ¼ to ½ cup marinade for each 1 to 2 lbs. of meat. Always marinate in the refrigerator. When basting the meat with a sauce, brush on during the last few minutes of grilling to prevent it from burning.
