Quick marinade recipes for summer BBQs

Source:  Editor:  Read:

Great recipes or marinade that is quick for summer BBQs?

Quick marinade recipes as follows:


One quarter cup apple cider vinegar
Three tablespoons prepared coarse-ground mustard (like Dijon)
Three cloves garlic, peeled and minced
One lime, juiced (and sliced, and thrown in)
Half a lemon, juiced (and sliced and thrown in)
Half a cup dark brown sugar
One medium onion, sliced
One and a half teaspoons kosher salt
Six tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
Ground black pepper to taste

In a large container thoroughly mix cider vinegar, whole grain mustard, garlic, lime n lemon juice, brown sugar n salt. Whisk in olive oil n pepper. Rinse chicken n pat it dry, put it in a large Ziploc bag n pour the marinade over it. Refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.

(a bottle of Texas Pete never hurt, either - I love chicken marinated in Texas Pete plus vinegar, caramelized onion, lemon and brown sugar - if you use pineapple juice don't marinate as long, it's really acidic. You can use anything - soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce .. depending on your tastes. I never put tomato based sauces on meat before they hit the grill, just after .. and I like to use horseradish and mustard on beef!)

If you want to baste with the sauce or serve it with the meat, put it on the stove and boil it (rapidly) for a bit after marinating.
