Top Cuts for the BBQ | HG Walter Ltd

The sun is shining, the grill is calling, and BBQ season is finally upon us! But with so many cuts of meat to choose from, where do you even begin? Fear not, this guide will help you select the perfect cuts to BBQ at home this summer and impress your guests every time!

Quick & Easy: Boneless Whole Chicken

Sometimes, you just need a quick and easy BBQ win. A boneless, whole chicken is your perfect option. This versatile cut cooks nice and evenly and can be marinated in various flavours to suit your taste (shop marinades here). Roast it whole and serve as a centerpiece or slice it for salads and sandwiches. Boneless chicken is a healthy, fuss-free option perfect for busy weeknight grilling.

For a Taste of Indulgence: Untrimmed Lamb Cutlets

Elevate your BBQ with some succulent lamb cutlets. Untrimmed cutlets are a more rustic option to the refined trimmed cutlet and offer a delicious balance of meat and fat, ensuring they stay juicy and flavourful during grilling. Marinate them in our garlic and rosemary marinade, or keep it simple with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Lamb cutlets cook quickly over high heat, so keep a close eye on them to achieve the perfect cuisson.

The King of Steaks: Ribeye

For the ultimate steak experience, look no further than the ribeye. This generously marbled cut delivers incredible flavour and juicy tenderness. Ribeye is best cooked over high heat to sear the outside while keeping the inside beautifully pink. Season with a simple salt and pepper or try a more adventurous steak rub. No matter how you prepare it, a ribeye is sure to be the star of the show at any BBQ.

Fall-Off-The-Bone Goodness: Baby Back Ribs

No BBQ is complete without some ribs! Baby back ribs are known for their tenderness and smaller size, making them perfect for those who love to get their hands dirty. They can be cooked quickly over high heat for a caramelised crust or slow-cooked for fall-off-the-bone perfection. Experiment with different sauces and rubs to find your own signature flavour.

Top Tips:

  • Pre-heat your grill: A hot grill ensures even searing and prevents sticking. Aim for medium-high heat for most grilling.

  • Let your meat come to room temperature: This helps it cook more evenly. Take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before grilling.

  • Don't overcook! Use a meat thermometer to ensure perfect doneness. (shop Meater here)/

  • Rest your meat: After grilling, let your meat rest before cutting. Depending on size, small steaks will just need a few minutes but larger cuts will need longer. This allows the juices to be redistributed for a more flavourful and tender meat.

From juicy chicken to luxurious lamb, flavourful ribs to the king of steaks - this list offers something for every griller. So grab your tongs, and get ready to grill like a champion!
