“An ounce of sauce covers a multitude of sins.” – Anthony Bourdain
With bbqlife.ie I hope to make it Irelands number one stop for hard to find sauces and rubs and maybe some other products down the line.
I also hope through blog posts to help you get the most out of your alfresco cooking.
The biggest mistake all beginners make when grilling/ smoking meat is trying too hard.
My number one rule to great BBQ is when the meat, smoke and spices work together. Do not try and overpower one of the elements. Use a little smoke flavour, use a little rub for seasoning. Buy the best meat you can afford for me BBQ is more about the meat so go easy on everything stand back enjoy a cold beer with friends or family and let the meat be the star of the BBQ.
Weber Grill Academy
I’ve been cooking on Weber BBQ’s for nearly 16 years. I was fortunate enough to join the weber demonstration team going around the country helping and showing people how to get the most out of their BBQ.
Smoking/grilling meat on your BBQ is a near primal experience. When done properly, the combination of meat, fire, smoke and the right temperature/time can make it almost a religious experience. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of specialised terms and strong opinions in the world of BBQ that can make it hard for someone starting out so I’m happy to help making the journey a little bit easier.
