Grilling Tips to Celebrate National Barbecue Month

Nothing kicks off the summer quite like a barbeque. Especially if you’re celebrating a house warming party for new homes in LaGrange, GA. Here are some tips to bring your barbequing techniques to a whole new level this summer.

Find the right marinade- for the best results, tenderize and marinate your meat the night before you plan to cook them so it can absorb the most flavor.  Marinades can range from oil-based recipes as simple as Italian dressing, to wine-based marinades, and even thicker marinades like steak or barbeque sauces. Depending on your personal tastes, perfect a recipe or shake it up all summer long! Marinades work great for meat entrees, kabobs, or even veggies.

One of the best ways to spice up your burger is to add and knead a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and a sprinkle of brown sugar into each hamburger patty. Of course, be sure to season with salt and pepper. This helps enhance the natural flavor of the meat with sweet and savory elements to make anyone crave seconds.

Meat certainly isn’t the only thing that grills well: ears of corn, potatoes, and pineapple have been grilling favorites for decades. For more delicate meat, like fish, be sure to lay down a sheet of aluminum foil to maximize the flakiness of your fish and prevent it from falling between the grates of your grill. You can also envelope veggies and shrimp in aluminum foil, add some butter or a delicious sauce to help steam them, and throw them right onto the barbeque, too.

Season your own woodchips in a barrel with different flavors, such as apple cider or Jack Daniel’s whiskey. Soak your woodchips in a sealed weather barrel for a week and then drain and dry them out for a few days. When grilling, throw a few handfuls of woodchips onto your coals or gas burners, and the smoke will help season your meal. You can even experiment with different flavors!

What is a barbeque without a great porch or patio? Make sure you’re looking at new homes in LaGrange, GA that help you enjoy your home, including the outside! Make sure your  outdoor arrangement is fit to host guests comfortably, and even deck it out with comfortable patio furniture and seating so you can enjoy all of that food you made!

Barbecues are perhaps one of the most compelling and tastiest ways to bring people together during the summer. Wether you want to meet the neighbors after buying one of those new homes in LaGrange, GA, or you want to get together for Memorial day or 4th of July, a barbecue is the perfect excuse to enjoy good company, good weather, and good food. Get grilling!
