Do you love to BBQ? If so, maybe you'd like to enter a BBQ competition. Below we'll show you how apps can help you win.
Barbecue contests are a big thing, especially during the summertime. If you have a passion for barbecuing and you'd like to enter a BBQ contest, the first thing you'll want to do is to figure out what type of meat you want to enter. Chances are, you're probably familiar with things like ribs and different parts of the chicken. But what about if you're planning to cook steaks? It's a good idea to become familiar with different meat cuts since they often have different cooking temperatures. One great app to help you with familiarizing yourself with cuts is the Nose to Tail app. This will help you choose the right one.
So, once you have decided what you will be barbecuing for the contest, you have to find the perfect BBQ sauce to go with it. There are plenty of great recipes that you can find for hot, mild, or sweet and savory barbecue sauces on apps such as Tastely and the Allrecipes Dinner Spinner. It's a good idea to try out different recipes to see what one goes best with your chosen cut of meat. After all, you want the flavor of the meat to shine through and not be overpowered by the sauce or rub that you choose. Not only can finding a sauce help you in the contest, but it can also help you if cooking is a hobby of yours.
Finally, the last thing you want to do is to plan your road trip to the competition. The right apps will make it much easier. First of all, you'll want a trailer that you can use to safely cart your items to the competition, so Freetrailer is a good choice. GasBuddy will help you find the best prices for gas, and Waze will help you keep on track during your road trip with a GPS and other features. Finally, you will want to use an app like Booking.com to find a place to stay in if the contest isn't local. These apps will help you get to the contest so the judges can taste your delicious food.
