Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What is the best meat for a BBQ?

A1. The best meats for a BBQ are well-marbled, tender, and flavorful. Cuts like ribeye steaks, pork ribs, and chicken thighs are popular. Sausages are always a winner, too. And why not try Pigs in Blankets on the Barby this Christmas? Who can resist the delicious smell of streaky bacon wrapped around sausages?

Q2. What is the hardest meat to BBQ?

A2. Tougher cuts with less fat and connective tissue, such as lean cuts of beef like sirloin, can be more challenging to BBQ as they tend to dry out. Make sure you check the timings carefully when cooking these meats.

Q3. How much meat per person BBQ calculator?

A3. To calculate the meat needed for a BBQ, estimate about 100 to 150 grams per person. Adjust based on preferences and any additional sides or dishes you plan to serve.

Q4. What makes a good BBQ marinade?

A4. A good BBQ marinade combines a flavorful base with acidity, sweetness, herbs, spices, salt, and pepper. It often includes ingredients like soy sauce, which benefits from a balance of flavours. Oil helps coat the meat and lock in moisture. Marinating time is essential, allowing the flavours to infuse the meat.

With Halswell Butchery's premium meat boxes, you're not just hosting a BBQ; you're creating an unforgettable experience. Elevate your gatherings, support local businesses, and indulge in the finest cuts Christchurch has to offer.
