A successful barbecue is the result of a great combination of spices, the art of cooking, the patience of the cook and idea about the perfect grill. So it’s a challenging task to prepare the barbecue meat for any chef. If you want to taste the authentic barbecue, you must drop in at the most popular joints which have a good reputation among the food lovers. Most of the joints tend to overcook the dish or drown the barbecue in the sauce which makes it too tender. So a lot depends on the chef. You might have to try out a few joints before hitting the best one.
Slow and low
Slow smoking and low-temperature maintenance are the two critical factors for preparing the best barbecue. To create the excellent taste of the ribs, briskets or the pork butts, the chefs have to use the real wood fire which brings the original essence of smoke. Patience is the secret of success of any barbecue chef. The cooks at Lawlers Barbecue never hurry about the preparation and leaves the meat on the pit completely undisturbed. But the cooks also take adequate care about avoiding the smoldering fires. Such smolders will create a bitter taste of the creosote and ruin the natural flavor of the meat.
Understanding the condition of meat
It is essential to check the status of the meat before serving it. Overcooked or undercooked meat will not be the perfect dish. The meat has to absorb the rich and deep flavors along with the essence from the wood fire. The chicken releases the marbled fat which renders the juicy taste of the grilled meat. The wonderful flavor is the combination of the spices, the rub, and the smoke. But the smoke flavor or richness should not overpower the natural flavor of the meat which undergoes slow cooking.
