BBQ Made Simple: Seasoning

By: Lawson Robinson

One of the most important aspects of a BBQ is the preparation process. Preparing, marinating and seasoning your food is the hardest part of grilling food. The rest of the grilling process is simply flipping the food over and fully cooking the food.

While the preparation process is important, it is also a lot easier than most people know. Seasoning and prepping the food takes time, but it is quite simple. Here is how to make seasoning simple.

Much like marinade sauce, there is a market for spices and seasoning. Companies have prioritized combining the right spices into a seasoning product. If you are inclined to do so, buying seasoning can be a great help.

One of the most popular seasonings comes from the Montreal seasoning line. You can purchase Montreal Steak & Montreal Chicken seasoning from a local grocery store or even amazon.com. If you are inexperienced with seasoning, then do not waste time trying to make your own. Buying seasoning ahead of time will save you from worrying about the taste of your food.

If you want to make your own seasoning, then that is quite easy as well. There are websites and books dedicated to crafting seasoning. These books and websites feature different kinds of seasonings for different kinds of food.

A great place to find seasoning recipes is allrecipes.com. As a matter of fact, allrecipes.com features recipes for meals and food, not just seasoning. If you want to craft a seasoning from scratch, then look to a website like that for help.

If you are having a big BBQ get together, do not fret over seasoning. Make sure you season it early in the day after thawing out the food. Then, let it sit for a few hours and marinade it in whatever sauce or rub you would like. That is how you make seasoning easy. The longer you soak, the better the flavor profile.
