Do BBQ Joints Need a Marinade?

We only stock the finest beef from high-quality farming producers here at Tom Hixson, so all of our joints offer excellent flavour on their own. Although our joints can be enjoyed with simple seasonings, marinades can help tenderise beef and enhance the natural flavours, resulting in a delicious finished dish. Many of our joints are perfect for marinating with a sweet and sticky sauce, like our Sauce Shop BBQ or Buffalo Sauce. You can also have a go at creating your own with a mix of mustard or another sauce base, and your favourite herbs and spices.

Can you BBQ a Joint of Beef?

Yes, you can BBQ a joint of beef, just make sure you cook it thoroughly, around two to three hours should do it. Be sure to turn the meat occasionally to prevent burning, and to season well before and after you add your joint to the BBQ. You can season your beef with salt, pepper, paprika, and your favourite herbs.

What Steak Cuts are Best for a BBQ?

To ensure your steaks stay juicy and succulent throughout the grilling process, choose a cut that offers great marbling. Tomahawk steaks, T Bone, Ribeye and Cowboy steaks are all ideal for BBQing. Picanha steak and rump tail are also great crowd-pleasers.

How Long do you BBQ Beef Steaks for?

If you want your steaks medium-rare, cook the steaks on your BBQ for around 4 minutes on each side, or 6 minutes for medium. If you prefer your steaks on the rare side, cook your steaks for two minutes on each side. For the most accurate results, use a meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature of the steaks.

How Long Does it Take to Cook Burgers on a BBQ?

To start, you will want to use a high-quality steak burger, such as our Marrow Dry-Aged Steak Burgers. You can use any type of grill to BBQ your steak burgers but ensure to oil the grates beforehand to prevent sticking. Cook your steak burgers for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, add your favourite garnishes, and enjoy! Find delicious BBQ burger recipes over on our food blog.

How do you Make BBQ Beef Brisket?

First, choose a brisket joint that is large enough to feed you and your guests. Prepare the beef cut by trimming off any excess fat, and covering in a dry rub (this could be a mix of salt, pepper, garlic granules, and paprika).

Warm-up your BBQ and smoker until it reaches 120°C. When smoking beef brisket, it should take around 90 minutes for every pound when the brisket is being cooked at 120°C. Depending on the size of the cut, this could take anywhere from 5 to 16 hours. To find more detailed steps, visit our food blog. Alternatively, follow our recipe for smoked beef brisket.

What Should you Serve With BBQ Beef Ribs?

BBQ beef ribs are great for summer barbeques with family and friends, alongside plenty of colourful side dishes. Our chefs would recommend serving your sticky ribs alongside grilled corn on the cob, and rainbow coleslaw. To find our recipe for rainbow coleslaw and BBQ beef ribs, visit our food blog.
