Barbeque Marinades for Pork, Beef, Poultry, and Fish


Barbeque Marinades are great flavor enhancers and they are as varied as you have imagination. Whatever flavors you find distinctive and delicious can be made into a marinade.

Many marinades have vinegar as a component. Vinegar is an acid and the acids work by softening the food so be careful with how long you food is in contact with the marinade.

We’ve used and like Chris Lilly’s injection barbeque marinade recipe for pork shoulder. It’s very simple and adds great flavor.
