Barbecue Essentials — Weekend Cookout

by in Recipes, June 15th, 2012


This summer, Food Network’s Grilling Central is packed with recipes for the entire family’s taste buds, boasting the best in burgers, dogs, chicken and more all season long. But with so many recipes, where do you start? Each Friday, FN Dish is giving you a complete menu that is stress-free, and this weekend’s spread is all about barbecue.

The secret to creating down-home barbecue is cooking it in a way that lets the meat become tender and juicy. In this video, Pat and Gina Neely, the self-proclaimed “First Family of Barbecue,” share simple tips and tricks — like using hickory chips to smoke the meat and tongs to turn it — for grilling succulent pork, brisket, ribs and more every time.

The Neelys’ overflowing pork sandwich from Food Network Magazine (pictured above) is representative of Memphis-style barbecue, dry rubbed and with a vinegar-based sauce. Check out these step-by-step photos to see how Pat and Gina prepare this barbecued beauty.

Main Dish: Pulled Pork Sandwiches
