Grill Master: Finding Unique Ways To Use BBQ Flavors

Love BBQ? (source)

Winter may upon us, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some of the best parts of a BBQ. People across the world are going to be wrapping up warm and enjoying hearty foods, working hard to make sure that their meals are appropriate for the time of year. Of course, though, with all of the ingredients available to you, you can use BBQ flavors to create a wide range of unique and interesting dishes that will take you right back to summer. Let’s dive straight into one of the most popular items on this list; BBQ kebabs.

BBQ Kebabs
BBQ sauce makes an excellent marinade, making it the ideal choice for those who want to make their meat or meat alternatives more interesting. By letting chicken, fake chicken, or other meats rest in sauce like this overnight, you will give them a much stronger flavor. You can also cook your meats in sauces like this, with frying working particularly well with things like chicken. Once you have some BBQ’d meats, you can add some salad, red onions, and even extras like a falafel to make yourself a BBQ kebab that even the Greeks would be proud of. Of course, though, one of the keys to a good kebab is the bread you wrap the whole thing in.

Instant Pots
Slow cookers have been a popular option for a long time, offering an easy way to make a meal without having to put loads of time into preparing everything. These machines can be ideal for producing marinaded meats, giving you another way to use your BBQ flavorings to create something unique. You can find a bbq pulled chicken instant pot recipe here to get you started, and there are loads of other meal options that use similar methods to give you more ways to branch out. This will all be much easier if you spend the time to learn how your slow cooker works before getting started.

Liquid Smoke
Liquid smoke is a simple ingredient that is designed to give food the taste of an open fire. You can add a little bit of the stuff to your meats and other ingredients as you cook, but you need to be careful with the amount you use, as it can be quite strong. This enables you to make your food taste like it has been cooked outside, giving you a key element of any BBQ without having to deal with the winter weather. This is great for anyone who loves the taste of BBQ food but doesn’t have access to a real BBQ, though you may have to try a couple of brands before you find your favorite option.

With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to start to bring BBQs back into your life, even during winter. It can be hard to enjoy the great outdoors when the rain is pouring and ice is on the ground, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t take a slice from it and bring it indoors.
