Island BBQ Cooking Tip #1

BBQ can be so much more than a wood-smoked flavored tender piece of meat.

Tip #1: Let the seasoned meat marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours before cooking.

I observe so many amateur and professional cooks take a raw piece of meat from its original packaging, season and immediately throw on the grill or smoker. This may work OK with small cuts of meat like steaks, chicken breast cutlet, fish fillets and shrimp, but is a big no no for large cuts for which I recommend 4-24 hours. Even for small cuts, I recommend 30-60 minutes of marinating time for a flavor boost.
