Top 5 Barbecue Marinades For Summer

Posted by Abigail Schmidt on August 06, 2014 (0 Comments)

While summer is still in full swing, why not enjoy it as much as possible? Stay out of the hot kitchen and light up the grill for dinner!

This is the one season of the year when cooking can be way more fun and way less work. Barbecue lets you be the chef and still hang out with everyone. It requires little prep work that you can do way in advance, without any pots and pans boiling over. Plus, outdoor cooking is wonderfully forgiving. Let the rain get that barbecue sauce off the picnic table!  I mean, its not like you have to sweep the lawn for crumbs when dinner is over either.  Good food outside: it's a win-win situation.

What make barbecue so good?

So lets talk about what makes good barbecue. That would be the marinade of course! Marinades not only add gourmet flavor, they tenderize the meat, keep it moist and can actually make it healthier for you.  Marinating chicken, beef, fish and pork can reduce the potentially cancer-causing substances on food cooked on the grill.

Since you’ve probably already been enjoying some barbecue already this summer, I’m sharing with you 5 delicious and exciting barbecue marinades to spice up summer dinners on the grill.

Every single one of these recipes has received great ratings and they’re all very easy to make. They’ll take your grilling to the next level and win you mad props from friends and family.
