Tasty tips from leaders in the barbecue business

Berardi begins every morning around 6 a.m., opening the restaurant and getting to work quickly on either creating the rubs for his meats or patting them down to stick them on the grill or barbecue — a process that could take all day depending on the cut of meat.

It is the rub, he said, that is the key to success for why his meats taste so good. Having the meat sit for 24 hours in the rub is also important, Berardi added.

“You don’t want to overpower the meat, because the meat has such a great flavor,” he said. “You pick and choose spices that will complement or enhance the flavor.”

Berardi uses eight ingredients to flavor meats like his tri-tip and brisket, including pepper, celery salt, celery seed and his secret ingredient: a tablespoon of thyme.

Berardi also only uses kosher salt or sea salt, a trick he says most barbecuers or grillers do not use often enough. The purity of the salt brings out a better flavor in the meat, he said.

Another tip for tasty meat — distinguishing between grilling and barbecuing.

According to Berardi, grillers use direct heat to cook meat, whereas barbecuers use indirect heat to achieve their meat masterpieces.

Noel Reid, owner of private catering company A Touch of Mesquite on East Lodi Avenue, does his meat a little differently from Berardi.

Unlike Berardi, Reid marinates his meat for only 30 to 45 minutes before he sticks it on the barbecue.

To achieve the flavor he wants for his meat, he punctures tiny holes in after he has trimmed it of its fat so that marinade juices can “sink in and soak.”

To keep the meat from losing its flavor during the cooking process, Reid rolls the meat in vinegar — which type, he said, does not matter — to create a type of seal so that the marinade stays inside the meat.

“It’s like a layer of protection,” he said. “You don’t get that with a rub, where you just put it on the meat and then stick it on the grill. It dries the meat out. With this seal, the meat stays nice and moist.”

Another necessary step that most people do not remember when barbecuing is how to cut meat, Reid said.

Reid said that to best enjoy your barbecue, you cut across the grain of the meat and always slice thinly.

“You aren’t doing yourself a favor by cutting your meat thick,” he said. “You want your meat thin and tender.”

Grilled Flatbread Recipe

Grilled Flatbreads Stuffed With Herbs and Cheese

Ingredients

For the dough
1 Ib. 7-1/2 oz. (5-1/4 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour; more as needed
4 tsp. baking powder
4 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. granulated sugar
1/2 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1 large egg
1/4 cup peanut or canola oil; more for brushing
For the filling
1-1/2 cups roughly chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup unsalted cashews or blanched almonds
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbs. chopped fresh ginger
1 tsp. kosher salt
6 Tbs. peanut or canola oil; more as needed for the grill
2/3 cup farmer cheese or queso fresco, crumbled (3-1/2 oz.)
Melted butter for brushing
Kosher salt for sprinkling

Directions

Make the dough: Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Whisk the yogurt and egg in a medium bowl, then whisk in 1-1/2 cups of lukewarm water and the oil. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and mix on low speed until a soft, sticky dough starts to clump around the hook, about 5 minutes. If the dough seems too wet, add more flour, 1 tsp. at a time.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and dust lightly with flour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 10 equal pieces. Form each piece into a ball and arrange them on the baking sheet. Lightly brush the dough with oil, cover with plastic, and let rest at least 1 hour and up to 2 hours before shaping.
Make the filling: Combine the cilantro, mint, nuts, garlic, ginger, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are finely chopped. Scrape the sides of the bowl, turn the processor back on, and pour the oil through the feed tube, mixing until incorporated. Transfer to a medium bowl.
On a lightly floured surface, roll a dough ball into a 5-inch circle. Spread about 2 tsp. of the filling in the center, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Scatter 1 Tbs. of the crumbled cheese over the filling.
Gather the border to form a pouch, pinching it to seal in the filling. Turn the pouch pinched side down and, using very light pressure, roll it into a 6-inch circle. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Continue filling and shaping the dough, layering parchment between the breads if you stack them.
Prepare a medium charcoal or gas grill fire. Brush the grill grates with a stiff brush, then wipe with a lightly oiled paper towel. Grill the breads in batches pinched side down, covered, until they look puffy and the undersides brown lightly in places, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and cook the other side, covered, until grill marks form and the breads are cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Just before taking them off the grill, turn the breads pinched side down and brush lightly with the butter. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Cut each bread in half and serve warm.
