Jamaican Jerk Chicken

A typical Jamaican dish made out of grilled chicken thighs that are marinated in a classic Jamaican sauce. Peas are the most common side-dish for this delicious meal but any vegetable pairs with the chicken thighs just as well.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

This dish shows that when we’re talking about barbecues, it’s not only meat we’re preparing. From an entire meal to just a side, sweet potatoes are one of the best ways to elevate a dish from normal classic potatoes.

Grilled Corn with Herb Butter

This dish is on the grill for only 15 minutes and is usually served with BBQ and herb butter. If you’ve never tried grilled corn on the cob before, this should definitely be your next choice of what to grill!

Grilled Fish in a White Wine Sauce

You can choose between different sauces, but our favorite is a white wine sauce. This white wine sauce includes milk, butter, lemon juice and black pepper, giving it a flavorful impact without overpowering the delicate taste of the grilled fish.

How to Prepare your Meat

First and foremost, you’ll need to prepare yourself for being a chef for the day. Gear up and take every necessary tool you may need - a pair of tongs, spatula, a grill brush and most importantly, your Butcher Block Board for preparing the meat.

Next piece of advice, keep the lid down as much as possible. We know it’s quite intriguing to watch the BBQ with the lid up to fully observe your food, but heat retention is significant.

Finally, heat zones, greasing the grate and flavoring the meat are fundamental aspects of meat preparation.
