Easy BBQ for Beginners
Are you looking for easy BBQ guides or recipes? If barbecue seems like a complicated undertaking to you, chances are good you’re a beginner! Don’t worry, we at Tony Roma’s are old pros who can walk you through the process and teach you some tips and tricks to put an easy barbecue well within your reach.
- First, choose your meat! A great barbecue always begins with the main attraction: the meat. A good place to start is pork or chicken. They are always staple choices for a tasty BBQ meal. Next, decide how you want to eat the meat – straight off the rib or on a sandwich? Or maybe both? Just grab some Tony Roma’s pre-cooked baby back pork ribs or pulled chicken to easily satisfy either craving. Lastly, don’t forget your sides! Tasty standbys like coleslaw and potato salad are perfect options. Or prep a fun and unusual salad, and a barbecue appropriate dessert.
- Next, make a cooking plan. Fortunately, Tony Roma’s meat is already pre-cooked, so all you have to do is choose how you prefer to heat it up. If the BBQ crowd is getting hungry, just pop the meat in the microwave for a fast turnaround. Want to get that outdoor barbecue feel instead? Just fire up the grill and warm up the ribs. Then you can spend time enjoying your pals and a perfect rack of ribs or those savory pulled chicken sandwiches.
- Make it a party! Whether you are entertaining a crowd or simply planning an easy BBQ for a fun night at home, it’s not hard to make it festive. Toss some picnic blankets on the ground and eat outdoors, with tea lights in Mason jars to brighten the evening, or turn on some mood music and decorate the table.
- Remember to keep it simple. Simplifying the menu, planning dishes you can prep ahead of time, and limiting the number of tasks you’ll have to do during the meal will allow yourself more time with friends and family. Make clean up easier by spraying your grill with cooking spray before you begin and using disposable dishes, utensils and even table linens. Planning an easy BBQ is really just a matter of thinking critically about the tasks involved before you begin and making it easier to complete them.
