Did you know that July is National Grilling Month?! With the sun shining and warm summer breezes, what completes this picture better than having family and friends around while cooking up some yummy barbecue?! Sounds pretty great to me!
With grilling comes sauces, marinades, rubs and more! They all add to the flavor and overall tastiness of your barbecue and thanks to Stubb's your Bar-B-Q will taste better than ever! I am excited to partner with Stubb’s to tell you all about their amazing products! They have something that will surely please your taste buds.
There are many barbecue trends heating up the grill this year and barbecue expert, Rocky Stubblefield of Austin, Texas-based Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q, offers tips for these top trends to try.
Boosted burgers: Create over–the-top burgers by coating each patty with Stubb's Bar-B-Q Rub, then sprinkle with a little smoked sea salt to really enhance that smoky barbecue taste. Let the patties sit for a while before cooking – you can actually see the flavor seeping into the meat!
Steak stand-ins: No barbecue is complete without coleslaw, so deconstruct the classic with grilled cabbage “steaks” marinated in Stubb’s Chicken Marinade for 15-30 minutes, then grilled over medium-high heat 3-4 minutes each side. Baste with 3/4 cup Stubb’s Sweet Black Pepper Anytime Sauce mixed with a quarter cup of mayo in the final minutes of grilling and serve with shredded carrots and finely chopped onions on top.
Smoky heat: Get just the right amount of heat to suit your taste by mixing in your favorite hot sauce with Stubb’s Original or Sticky Sweet Bar-B-Q Sauce, then heat together in a pan, adding hot sauce to taste. Throw in a little finely chopped onion for some extra tang and texture.
Smoking is the new grilling: For smoking meats on a charcoal grill, use hardwood chunks, or on a gas grill, use wood chips. Soak wood chunks in water for 1 hour, or chips for 30 minutes, then drain before using. Burn two wood chunks for each hour of smoking, and 1 cup of wood chips for an hour or less of smoking. Try a variety of wood – hickory, mesquite or apple wood – to experiment with flavors.
Yum! I am hungry just thinking about all this deliciousness! How does trying one of these savory sauces sound to you?! Just lacking some Stubb’s Bar-B-Q? No worries… enter for your chance to WIN $25.00 in FREE item coupons and get Bar-B-Q-ing!
