Why do we love BBQ’s so much? Well there is something about eating “al fresco” but also down to the way that cooking on a BBQ infuses food so much more than can be done in a pan or oven that we love. It’s also a hark back to the primitive way that humans first started to learn about cooking their food over a fire many centuries ago. Recent scientific research have gone to great lengths to explain why BBQ’d meat taste so good –
To get the best taste from a BBQ always use Charcoal – Many people don’t realise that charcoal is actually wood that’s been heated in the absence of oxygen. Wood chips contain a chemical compound called lignin which, when fired up, gets broken down and produces another compound called guaiacol. The guaiacol in the charcoal is what then produces that deep, smokey wood fired flavour.
But the “holy grail of all culinary chemical reactions,” , is when the Maillard reaction rearranges the amino acids and sugars in the muscle meat to produce the quintessential browned color and mouthwatering taste of barbecue. When juices from the meat drip onto the charcoal, they produce even more delicious-tasting compounds that float upwards and saturate the meat with even more flavor.
