They also want to share tips to help make any summertime backyard celebration taste delicious. “Whether you’re trying something new or relying on an old favorite, there are two things that can make or break a perfect barbecue meal: The meat and the sauce.”
The cut and type of meat is the foundation for a feast. “Traditional Texas BBQ takes a tougher and otherwise unusable piece of meat, like the brisket, and cooks it ‘Low and Slow’ with indirect heat—resulting in a juicy, tender delicacy. Another sure sign of summer is a perfectly smoked slab of meaty pork ribs. My suggestion would be the St. Louis style cut. Some butchers call them spareribs, but on the St. Louis cut the tips or ‘brisket bones’ have been removed, so technically they are no longer ‘spares’.”
The perfect barbecue sauce is, literally, the icing on top. “The secret to a great barbecue sauce is the balance of flavors and proper consistency. The ratio of ingredients like vinegar, spices and sugars is what defines the sauce’s snap. The flavor presents itself, and your mouth reacts. You must balance the thickness of the sauce and how it coats the food and your mouth. If the sauce is too thin, it will dissipate in your mouth. Sauce that has the proper consistency, and contains the right snap, will start a party in your mouth!”
