Updated: May 8, 2021

Oakland Pitmaster Matt Horn shares his tips for home barbecue cooks.

1. Stop washing your meat

Dry it off!

2. Avoid over-seasoning

salt and pepper might be all you need

3. Let your coals get hot enough

wait until they are all coated in white

4. Don't crowd your pan and avoid flipping your meat too soon

Leave some space and let it cook

5. Give it time to rest

Just like a steak or roast no matter what you cooked let it rest when you are done
