It’s Bar-B-Q season – I know we’re out on our patio in front of the grill at least a couple times a week right now. To celebrate one of the best ways to cook and add flavor to your meal, Stubb’s has some great tips for grilling as well as a giveaway. Even if Bar-B-Q and grilling are some of our favorite ways to cook, there are a lot of misconceptions and myths. It’s about silly things like how many times to flip your meat, how long to keep it on and even the best way to season them. Stubb’s has you covered and even brought some great tips and Bar-B-Q trends with tips from national barbecue expert Rocky Stubblefield of Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q.
One of my favorite Barbecue trends is amped up burgers. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing ground beef or even turkey – you can layer in the flavor in and on top of the burger. Stubb used to say “it all starts with a great rub,” and in 2016 that includes not only steaks, brisket and ribs, but also burgers. I love slathering on a good barbecue sauce as I’m grilling some burgers, it becomes a great glaze for the meat and brings different levels of flavor to your burger.

The expert tip for making the best burger?
Rocky’s tips: Create over–the-top burgers by coating each patty with Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Rub, then sprinkle with a little smoked sea salt to really enhance that smoky barbecue taste. Let the patties sit for a while before cooking – you can actually see the flavor seeping into the meat! Before you throw them on the grill, make a thumbprint in the middle of the patty to get a flat, evenly cooked burger instead of a plump, rounded one that is undercooked in the middle.
Why add Stubb’s to your Bar-B-Q menu this year? We use it because not only is it gluten free, but it’s delicious! Stubb’s get its bold flavors from real ingredients, with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. It contains no high fructose corn syrup, and is the No. 1 ingredient in most national BBQ sauce brands. Their sauces, marinades and rubs are a great way to add flavor to all kinds of grilled meats and vegetables for holiday cookouts. Better ingredients means better results and flavor for all of your recipes.
