5 Tips To Perfect Your BBQ Game This Summer
In our world, summer is synonymous with grilling. There’s nothing better than gathering your best friends, assigning side dishes, and having them over to hang out around the grill. And, as a butter lovin’ brand, we’re going to go out on a not-so-big limb and say that butter and meat are made to go together.
Don’t believe us? Well, let’s use steak, for example. Most people love grilling with butter because it helps intensify the flavors and adds a bit of decadence. And they’re right! Adding butter to your red meat increases flavor and richness, imparts a glossy finish and texture, and makes it a nice, easy, tasty sauce. Whatever you’re throwing on the grill can be instantly improved by the taste of butter.
If you’re looking to take your barbequing game up a level and perfect your bbq, here are a few tips and tricks on grilling with butter:
Save the best for last
Most people enjoy brushing on butter at the final stages, and there’s a reason for that! Butter burns at a low temperature, while meat burns at a high temperature. Therefore, by waiting till the end, you’ll save yourself a mouthful of burnt food. Try restricting the grilling time of the butter by grilling your meats first, then applying butter to the meat when you’re less than fifteen degrees away from your desired temperature.
Butter is always on top
When grilling with butter, make sure to place the butter directly on top of the meat. Why? Well, the clean-up!
get some clarity
Take your Minerva Dairy butter and turn it into delicious clarified butter. Like we said earlier, butter burns faster than meat. But clarified butter takes longer to burn, allowing you to impart even more flavor.
locked and loaded
Everyone knows that your water pan in your smoker helps keep your meat moist. Want to keep it from drying out every single hour? Add salt and vinegar to it and it will raise the temperature needed to boil. Voila! More moisture and flavor!
keep it flavorful
Try one of Minerva Dairy’s flavored kinds of butter that will add an even more unique taste. Just think of how delicious your meat would be with a hint of Garlic & Herb butter!
In a family of 6 generations of butter lovers, it’s safe to say there was a lot of cooking…and a lot of butter. We encourage you to get in the kitchen, cooking with and for your loved ones. Always remember, if all else fails, just add butter!
