My guests often ask what my secret is for making the perfect BBQ meat. It's a combination of "secrets" that have been picked up over the years, and I will now share them with you.
For maximum flavor, I marinate the meat overnight in a sealed plastic bag. Be sure to remove the bag about a half hour before grilling, so that it's room temperature. The amount of ingredients can vary, so feel free to put more or less of anything you choose.
The top coating after grilling should be basted on with a brush just before removing it from the grill, so that it doesn't burn on. It doesn't matter what meat you marinate and baste, the flavor will still be phenomenal!
1 cup soy sauce
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp oregano
Grill meat to desired perfect, then use basting brush to add:
1 cup desired BBQ sauce (I prefer Hickory or Whiskey flavored)
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Blend together in small bowl and have ready to apply just before removing meat from grill. Enjoy!
