The key to good grilling is simple: fresh, healthy produce and plenty of flavors. We’ve already told you which foods are essential at any barbecue. Now it’s time to tell you about flavor.
A good marinade is almost as important as the meat itself. It adds flavor. Makes it tender. Juicy. Delicious. And making your own is a million times better than buying it. Make it as spicy, as thick or seasoned as you like. What’s best is you know exactly what’s in it. No unhealthy, added ingredients.
