For all the BBQers - what do you like to grill or smoke? What's your favourite cut?
For special occasions I love doing a beef eye fillet cooked long and slow. So tender and delicious!
I find it hard to go past a good butterflied leg of lamb. I just cover it in olive oil, sea salt and fresh rosemary.
It's hard to go past a webber 'beer can chook' but on those rare occasions we get 2" thick rib eye and cook it blue. So tender you can cut it with a butter knife. And soooooo good.
@Brad & @Jason, I totally agree on the lamb chops/cutlets, the aroma is divine, & that stupendous fat is to die for. Life's too short to be bothering with the Cholesterol scare mongers, if something brings a smile, then it's good for you.
Butter & season it when it's cooking, for the ultimate culinary sin.
I love cooking marinated chicken thighs on the BBQ. I can never understand why people cook chicken breast meat on the BBQ - it dries out too quickly and gets stringy.
I have shared it before, but here's one of our favourites - ginger and lemongrass grilled chicken.
1tbs grated ginger
2 stalks lemongrass
6-8 chicken thighs
2 Lebanese cucumber
1.5 cups coriander leaves
1.5 cups mint leaves
Combine ginger, lemongrass, coriander, oil, salt and paper. Spread mixture over chicken and marinade for 10 mins. Heat barbecue over high heat and cook chicken for 2-3 mins each side or until just cooked through.
Thinly Slice cucumber long lengthways and combine with mint and coriander.
Drizzle kecap manis over chicken to serve.
My favourite would be roast pork shoulder, nothing better than pork crackle done in the BBQ. So delicious! And quite easy to cook, you just have to check on it every now and then.
