Burgers will bulge in the middle while they cook and this will help keep the thickness even. 3. Don’t cook your burgers directly over the flame. Keeping the meat in direct contact with the flame will result in a charred, acrid flavor. 2. Find out what’s really going on inside...

Let’s face it – most of us are terrible barbecuers. If we’re not cremating sausages, we’re probably poisoning our friends. It’s strange that we pick the method of cooking that needs possibly the most concentration on days when all we want to do is kick back and have a beer. Cooking well over fire takes some skill, but mastering those techniques will give you a special seat of honour among...

How to make the best BBQ marinade

“Most marinades work by using an acid base (vinegar, wine or lemon juice, fruit: papaya or pineapple for example) to weaken the muscle tissue, this makes the meat feel softer and juicier in the mouth. Dairy products, like hung yoghurt and even greek yoghurt are traditionally used as a marinade in northern India. The yoghurt has special tenderising qualities in addition to their mild acidity, making it the perfect accompaniment to any BBQ dish. The best way to marinate a piece of meat or fish is to marinade it twice, something that we do...

How-to Smoke Ribs on Your Gas Grill

How to Trim Pork Spareribs Into a St. Louis-Style Cut

The one thing I’ve learned about KCBS contests is that judges like big, meaty ribs. They tend to score you lower when you have those thin, little ribs you have to chew around the bone to get any meat… And I don’t blame them.

And the best way I’ve found to get the biggest, meatiest rib is to buy a whole sparerib and cut it down myself. It’s pretty easy to do – only takes a...
