Barbecue Tip of the Week: Rosemary ‘basting brush’ for the Barbecue to Enhance Flavor

Have a lot of extra rosemary growing in your garden but not sure what to do with it?   Make a Rosemary basting brush to rub on whatever you are grilling that could use the enhanced flavor.

Have a marinade that is already containing rosemary that you need to brush on? Use rosemary to brush it on.

Simple and fun way to infuse extra flavor into your BBQ recipes.

Instructions:

  • Take 3-4 snippets of Rosemary from your Rosemary plant that are anywhere from 10-14 inches long.
  • Press them up against a wooden spoon with about 3-4 inches hanging off the end of the handle side of the spatula.
  • Take butchers string and wrap it a few times around the Rosemary and the handle end of the spoon.  Don’t put any on the 3-4 inches hanging off the end of the spatula. Continue this all the way up to the “spoon” side. Tie it off and secure it.
  • Now use the spoon end as your handle for the basting brush and the 3-4 inches hanging off the handle side is your “baster”.
