South Side BBQ Cooking Tips

Cooking Ideas
  • The South Side BBQ Rub tastes great when added to any type of meat. 
  • It contains salt so there is no need to add additional when covering the meat. 
  • 1 tin of 65gr is enough for approximately 1.5kg of meat. 
  • To apply the South Side BBQ Rub, first rub a thin coating of olive oil & cover evenly across the meat. 
  • As well as adding flavour, the olive oil will help the rub stick better to the meat.
  • Now sprinkle the South Side BBQ Rub over the meat massaging it across all areas so it is applied evenly. 
  • It is always best to apply the rub for a minimum of 1/2 an hour before cooking & a maximum of 2 hours.  
  • Salt will extract moisture (juices from the meat) once added. For that reason it is best not to leave the meat for over 2 hours. 
  • When cooking with dry rubs on the outside of the meat it is a balancing act of allowing direct flames to give a nice crisp charred outer crust while not burning off all of the flavour. 
  • It is best therefore to cook the meat 'low & slow' on the outer parts of the BBQ to allow a flavourful crust to develop, 
  • If a little more charring is needed then move the meat directly over the flames but keep a watchful eye to make sure the outer crust does not burn off completely.
