Grilling Tips

Grilling tips from NorthBourne Foods

NorthBourne carries one of the largest selections of sauces and marinades. Marinating is a type of seasoning that is very popular but takgrilling tipses a little patience. When you marinate meat it’s usually done overnight or a few hours before grilling. With the exception of seafood. Seafood absorbs marinates very fast so they don’t have to soak for a long period. The mixture for a marinade will vary in ingredients depending on the food being marinated. NorthBourne has a blend for every taste. Dry Rubs usually consists of a small amount of coarse salt, coarse black pepper, garlic powder, paprika and allspice to name just a few. The rub is applied to the meat before cooking. To do this start by rinsing the meat and pat dry with paper towels. Then coat the meat with a high quality light olive or vegetable oil both supplied from NorthBourne Foods. The oil helps to keep the rub on the meat and stay there while it’s grilling. Brining is one of the oldest ways to flavor and tenderize meats. The meat is placed in a container of water that has been seasoned with coarse salt and sugar. The combination of these two ingredients will make the meat more tender and juicy when cooked. A natural reaction occurs which draws the salt in along with sugars to create a unique flavor and at the same time it tenderizes the meat; and last, Basting is a form of seasoning that is typically done while actually cooking the meat. A good baste usually has an oil base and the oil tends to stay on the meat better and is consistent with retaining natural juices from the meat.
