Top 5 Meats to Grill on Charcoal
Admit it or not, a charcoal grill is often the best option when cooking meat. However, there’s no denying that not all meats suit the smoky nature and high temperature of grillers. To help you avoid a culinary mishap, here are some of the best meats our resident chefs recommend when grilling on charcoal.
#1: Prime Rib Steak
Meats with great marbling like prime rib steak always taste delicious and flavorful when cooked on a charcoal grill. Typically, our resident cuisine experts suggest seasoning the steak with a rub mixture before placing it on direct heat. It will take fifteen to twenty minutes to cook if your griller is set to 450 to 500 degrees temperature.
#2: Chicken Barbecue
A grilled chicken recipe comes in many forms, from boneless, bone-in, wings and chicken cutlets and thighs. However, any foodie knows the best way to enjoy chicken is at a BBQ party! The duration of grilling a chicken barbecue recipe depends on the size, but its flavor mainly relies on the marinade you use.
#3: Baby Back Ribs
No BBQ party is complete without the baby back ribs. And while it’s common meat to pair with your new charcoal grill, it requires a slow and low grilling process, so we suggest keeping a close eye on it during food prep. Our cuisine experts also discourage you from adding too much sauce, as this would dampen the natural flavor of the ribs.
#4: Burger Steak
When grilling burgers in charcoal, it’s best to keep your cooking temperature in check. One miscalculation in handling heat could result in an overdone or under-cooked burger. If you’re looking forward to perfectly grilled patties, don’t rely on pre-made ones at the grocery stores.
#5: Flank Steak
Among the best meats to grill on charcoal grills, flank steak is undoubtedly one of the most flavorful. Before putting it on the hot grates, ensure that the meat is thawed accordingly, or it won’t cook well in direct charcoal heat.
If you want a mouth-bursting flavor, marinating your steak is a great option to consider before the actual grilling. However, we advise putting it in a sealed container and letting it sit in the refrigerator for food safety
Whipping up a grilled recipe isn’t an easy task but knowing which is the best meat to grill on charcoal will help you be more well-versed in tackling other recipes. After all, cooking is a continuous learning process. There’s no shame in taking it slow, so our team suggests selecting meats carefully before hitting the grill.
Rubs pull moisture from the air, while drawing juices from the inside of the meat. This reaction is called osmosis. This literally causes the meat to marinade itself as it cooks.
Make Your Own Rub
Combine 1 tablespoon each of cumin, paprika, granulated garlic, granulated onion, chili powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and white pepper with two tablespoons kosher salt and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Store in an airtight container.
