So, the chicken breasts… One of the cheapest cuts you can get, and one might think, quite simple to cook. But here’s the catch – this cut is one of the leanest ones as well, so, to keep it succulent and tender, you will find all kinds of marinating, brining and wrapping techniques suggested in the recipes. No, I am not saying these methods won’t work… On a contrary, they will, and you’ll most probably love the results, but… what if I told you there’s a way to grill an ultimately juicy and tender chicken breast completely fuss-free and ridiculously simple? Do I have your attention now? Good! Let’s go!
It’s been quite long since I posted something. Main reason is we’re having a bit of a situation in Israel these days – some “unusual garbage” is falling on our heads, courtesy of our “cousins” from Gaza… But here I am, practically smoking under fire :)!
Last weekend I succeeded to lay my hands on those nice baby back ribs… Unfortunately, pork is not the most popular meat in Israel, and even where it is, baby backs are quite rare to find. But here I am, with 4 decent beautiful racks, which I was dying to get on my smoker.
Roast beef is one of my favorite dishes… But when grilled, it becomes an absolute treat, and I am going to show you one of the simplest and easiest ways to make it. Also, you’ll find a very interesting spice mix, as well as a salad, which has become my all times companion to grilled meat.
This is a first chapter in the series of BBQ basics posts, and today I am going to talk about rubs. These are mixes of dry or wet spices you can use for either curing the food before grilling, or seasoning it right before or at the time of grilling it. For me these are the very basics of grilled or smoked food!
