Barbecue tips and marinades by the best gourmet butcher around
When gourmet butchers and specialists in heritage native and rare breed meat, Farmison & Co give tips on the best marinates for the ultimate barbecue, you do want to listen.
Their first suggestion is to invest in a chimney starter as it really speeds up the burning process.
All meat works well on a BBQ, be sure not to have excessive fat. Treat in the right way but for me the simplest and most flavoursome is a lamb tomahawk, succulent & tasty, takes the char really well and big enough in flavour to take spices & herbs.
Marinades per type of meat
- Lamb: North African sweet and smokey spices(cinnamon & pimento)
- Poultry: citrus, yoghurt based sauces with aromatic Indian spices (cardamon & curry leaves)
- Pork: rich, intense spices and sweet glazes (star anise & coriander)
- Beef: bold spices & a little heat, szechuan pepper & ginger
Don't forget to try Farmison's favourite sides: the charred hispi cabbage hearts finished with anchovy, capers & a squeeze of lemon.
