Recipes for a Low-Carb BBQ
If you can, get your family and friends to lend a hand. Sharing the workload makes it faster, and the company makes it more fun. Most of the sides, dips and sauces featured here can be made a day early and pulled out just in time for your guests. The food that will be cooked on the grill can be seasoned in advance.
For the best results take the food out of the fridge about an hour before placing it on the grill. If it is room temperature before it hits the grill, you should get more even cooking and better results.
Dips and sauces

Marinades and seasonings
Make your own signature marinade by experimenting with chili, garlic, Dijon mustard or your own local spices. The longer you let you meat marinate, the more tender and flavourful it gets.
And how about salt? We believe you get the best results adding it about 45 minutes before cooking, about the same time you take your meat out of the fridge. That way, the meat gets the flavor from the salt, and the juices that accumulate on top have a chance to reabsorb. You can also add salt just before cooking; that works great too.
Meat and poultry
Fish and seafood
