If you have been lucky enough to go to a BBQ competition, you have experienced the tantalizing smells and aromas from grilling recipes wafting everywhere. Nothing compares to the great food you can make on the grill, but getting maximum flavor and ideal texture can be hard. The true masters of this cooking form never tell people exactly how they do it. If you want to try your hand in such competitions like the Blue Springs Blaze Off, you need to work on your own style and maybe have something African inspired that can impress a judge. This will involve a lot of work, and hours spent on the grill perfecting the right technique. You can get a head start by simply picking unique grilling recipes.
The ideal way to catch the eye of someone is with new food products on the grill they have not seen before. Yes, pork is always a favorite, but African inspired foods such as lamb and eggplant will mean people coming over to check out your food. Just having something different will mean people remember you next year.
Remember, at a BBQ competition, there are hundreds of participants, and most of the ones with pork grilling recipes are going to be overlooked, unless they do a truly sensational job. If you really want to get noticed, you will need to have new food products, maybe something that is African inspired. It is always hard to win on your first attempt, but with some practice, and unique flavors, you can get your name out there, and show the world your grilling expertise.
