Bbq shrimp and pasta!!!

The word derives from the word “barabicu”, which to the Taíno people in the Caribbean islands meant “sacred fire pit”. If we can get in.

What is BBQ? I think BARBEQUE is something that’s prepared over a real-time fire, to make sure that could encompass barbecuing, slow-moving countered food preparation, cooking in the ground, food preparation whole hogs over coals, any one of those examples I call BARBEQUE, but for me on a personal level, it’s a German/Czech design, counter cooking.” I experiment at all times, at the end of the day feel trumps black and white number or formula you can potentially have.

If something’s not tender, it’s simply not tender, if something’s completely dry, it’s simply also completely dry. BUT, the science behind these points just how timber burns, how airflow works, if you begin thinking about liquid characteristics inside of a cooker, then science has a quite huge part of it.

I believe excellent BBQ is an equilibrium in between science as well as all-natural gut instinct. Cooking is really just thermodynamics and chemistry, however tastier.

Inside the cigarette smoker, air particles are moving really swiftly thanks to that fire, they’re vibrating all insane, and also when they smack right into the brisket, they transfer that power to the meat, either adding chemical reactions or raising the temperature. Meat browns when it cooks, whether it’s straight heat like a steak or reduce like BARBEQUE. Heat breaks proteins down right into amino acids, which then react with sugars to develop molecular deliciousness, which happens to be brownish.

It’s not caramelization, it’s something called the Maillard reaction. It started out with entire pets, you would certainly offer what you could and after that whatever was left, as a method of conservation, you would certainly BARBEQUE stuff on Sundays For us to completely understand the science of BBQ, we need to know a little about the hunk of meat we’re cooking. Meat in general is muscle, which is primarily protein, fat, some vitamins and minerals, and whole lot of water.

Brisket comes from across chest area of cow, right here, and since cattle don’t have collarbones like us, this muscle has to support more than half their body weight.

That means it’s got a lot of three things: hard-working muscle, fat, and connective tissue. It’s basically the opposite of filet mignon. But if we apply the right kind of science, those three things can come together like Voltron to make something very tasty.

So at the end of the day you want it to be tender, juicy, good bark, with good fat render. Some of you might not want to hear this, but making good BBQ is like making Jell-O.

Ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, all cuts of meat that have tons of connective tissue, the molecular glue that supports all those muscle fibers. Collagen, one of the proteins in connective tissue, can make up a quarter of all the protein in a mammal’s body.

Cook ’em fast, and those proteins snap up tight like rubber bands, they have the texture of them too. They melt if you cook them slow. When collagen is heated slowly and held there for hours (and hours), its long protein chains break down and water works its way in.

That’s what makes good BBQ so tender inside. BBQ cuts also have a good amount of fat.

These have much higher melting points than unsaturated fats like, say, vegetable or olive oil you have in your kitchen, because those straight triglyceride tails are stable, packed nice and close.

As we heat these saturated fats up, slowly, we can disrupt those hydrogen bonds and turn to liquid, called rendering. Together, melting collagen to gelatin and liquefying fat make the meat OH SO TENDER.

Did they have ovens back in the early days, coming up through Mexico? No you dug a hole in the ground, you buried a head, on coals, you cooked on a fire.

I’m not gon na use electricity, not gon na use gas no assisted heat source of any kind.We have light bulbs, and I don’t even like that so much. And it tastes good. That gets into a whole other thing too, how you’re using wood, green wood, dry wood, post oak, hickory, mesquite, pecan, any of these different kinds of woods they all taste different, they all cook different. The hardwoods used in BBQ smoke have lots of cellulose and lignin.

When burnt slowly, cellulose caramelizes into sugar molecules that flavor the meat.

And lignin is converted into all kinds of aromatic chemicals that flavor the meat, and can even act as chemical preservatives. You just can’t have brisket, or any BBQ, without that beautiful smoke ring.

Meat starts out pink because it’s full of oxygen-carrying molecule called myoglobin. Well, BBQ smoke contains gases like carbon monoxide and nitric oxide, made by burning wood.

That gas diffuse into the edges of the meat, bind to the myoglobin in place of oxygen.

It’s not just heat, it’s not just the temperature on a gauge, it’s how the smoke is coming out of the smokestack, it’s how a piece of wood if it flames up and dies out real quick, it’s about a heat curve, how long is it gon na last, are you forcing a piece of wood to do something it doesn’t want to do? You can’t really make a piece of meat do what you want it to do, you can only guide it to do what you think you want it to do.
