To celebrate the launch of our BeefEater 7000 Series BBQ range, we’ve worked with Sydney’s first foodie creators, Issac Martin (63.9k), to share the 3 biggest BBQ TikTok ideas you need to try this year.
1. Chunky yet, pretty sandwiches
Sandwiches are huge right now! Not only are they a quick and easy meal that most (if not all) of us can throw together with various condiments, but they’re equally as delicious at any time of day. A big trend right now is where you cook your steak to medium-medium rare and slice it on the sandwich to show the blushing pink through the middle.
2. Move over ham. It’s pastrami time.
The hashtag #pastrami has over 179 million views on TikTok and it’s all thanks to the generation of smokers and BBQ hobbyists who took up barbecuing, grilling and smoking during the COVID-19 pandemic getting super adventurous with beef brisket.
If you can cook a brisket well, pastrami is definitely the next logical challenge! The bright pink colour that peers through from a good brining is also a visual wow on video.
3. Not just ordinary burgers. SMASHBURGERS.
As good as charcoal and smokers are, you can’t go past a gas BBQ with a flat plate. My new BeefEater 7000 Series Premium BBQ is the hottest BBQ on the market and includes an 11MJ rear ceramic burner that I can smash a quality ball of mince on! (Yep, the clue is in the name smashburger). As simple as beef, cheese and a bun or as intricate as you want to make it, smashburgers are on the rise for those at home wanting to combine fast-food burger condiments with the traditional chunkiness of milk bar burgers.
Quick, delicious and great to share with family and friends, check out my recipe on my channel!
