Not Just BBQ... Your Q

We all love BBQ. Let us in on what makes Your Q unique and original. If it's not one of your protected secrets, give us a glimpse. You never know how much you might help someone.

Not Just BBQ... Your Q

Your Style of BBQ Sauce

Is your preferred style of BBQ sauce better than all the rest? Is it so good, that it's ridiculous?

You already know why it's so much better than the others... Teach us why!

Your Style of BBQ Sauce

BBQ the Right Way

Have you already got this figured out? If you already know, then please share it with the world. Reveal your expertise and tell it like it is.

Not much experience with BBQ? No worries. Everybody's got a story. Breaking in a brand new grill may be just what visitors who've never BBQed need to see.

BBQ the Right Way

Get It On (the map)

Have you got a favorite BBQ joint? Who doesn't... right? Well, get in on the map and see it here on the website.

Just give me its name and tell me a little about it. And of course, tell me where it is (at least the city and state). You can even send in a picture if you want.

When you're done, just click the "Brag On It" button. I will put it on the map for all the world to see.

Editor's Qs

Do marinades sink deep into the meat?

Lots of people will tell you that marinades don't work, or at least not much. And actually, marinades can't sink deep into meat (unless, of course, you marinate too long thereby literally dissolving it). Learn more about the effects of acids on my marinades page.

The reason for using a marinade isn't to dissolve the meat into a pile of mush and fundamentally changing the muscle fibers. A marinade protects the meat from the grill's high heat. And that acidic and oily coating reduces the formation of cancer causing substances.

Marinating is definitely a worthwhile process. No... it won't tenderize a piece of meat like you may have thought. But, it will reduce how much it will dry out while cooking (which makes it more tender). And here is probably the best part. Marinades do add flavor, and they allow seasonings to stick to the surface of the meat.

The Challenge Continues.

I don't want to give you the idea that I can't be stumped, but... let's see what happens.
