No meat should hit the grill before being marinated, brined, or given a good rub-down with seasonings. If you want to add pizzazz, marinades provide endless ways to take your meat to the next level.

Before getting started, place your meat in a resealable plastic bag. Then, add your choice of ingredients and shake until your meat is evenly coated. Simply let your meat marinate for 12-24 hours in the fridge before grilling. The result will be so moist and flavorful that you’ll have no need for additional seasonings. To give you a few ideas, here are some of my favorite marinades:

  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Italian dressing
  • Olive oil, rosemary, garlic, and lemon
  • Apple cider vinegar, cumin, and onions
  • Soy sauce, garlic, and ginger
  • Olive oil, chili powder, thyme, and orange (slices or peels)
  • Balsamic, soy sauce, and Worcestershire
  • Vegetable oil, mustard, honey, and curry powder

Don’t forget the toast!

Savor the flavor
Taste the heat
Thank the grill master
And enjoy the meat!
