Ever wonder why it’s usually the guy at the grill? Maybe it’s a primal instinct but somehow tending to the grill normally ends up the responsibility of the guys. I enjoy my BBQ just as much as the next guy, and I say, have fun with it! Have fun trying different sauces, different marinades and different rubs. Throw some veggies in a grilling basket or even try something you wouldn’t normally think to BBQ like pizza or perogies. There’s nothing that gets the mouth watering more than the delicious scent of something cooking on the Q.
Experimenting while you’re cooking can be a great way to keep the enjoyment in your grilling and you are only limited by your imagination. Mix and match sauces and spices to come up with something unique you can call your own. Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a Kansas City style rub that you can try to get you started:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
Start here but never be afraid to play around with a recipe to make it your own. Now that the nice weather is here have some fun with your grill!
