September has been a busy month! I hope you and your family are safe and doing well.

In this issue of Barbecue Nuggets, there are a couple of new recipes I'd like to introduce to you.

Then I'll show you how to form perfect patties for your burgers.

Finally, I tell you about a cool show on Netflix all about barbecue.

So let's get to it!

How to Grill Roast Beef

The first recipe is Grilled Roast Beef.

If you love roast beef, you'll love it even more when you know How to Grill Roast Beef.
Juicy, tender roast beef, with a kiss of smoke.

How to Make Barbecue Wings

The second recipe shows you How to Make Barbecue Wings on your grill.

I love, love, love chicken wings! Especially deep-fried Buffalo wings.

I was skeptical when I tried this technique. Now, these may be my favorite kind.

I'll have to make a few more batches to find out for sure. :)

Try them out and tell me what you think.

How to Form Perfect Patties

I would like to tell you about a way to form perfect patties for your burgers.

Use a lid from a jar or plastic container. I use the plastic cover from a container of Planters mixed nuts.

You want plastic, not metal; it's easier to clean and won't rust.

Just make sure it's slightly larger than the bun. The lid in the picture above is about 4 1/2" across.

If the cap is slightly larger than the bun, the patty should be the perfect size after cooking.

The one I use holds 8-10 ounces, no problem. I suggest 7-ounce patties; they're perfect, not too big, not too small.

Before using, remove the paper liner and wash thoroughly with hot soapy water.

Line your lid with a double layer of plastic wrap. Put your seasoned meat into the lid and press down with your hand to make the patty flat.

Use the plastic wrap to remove the patty.

Easy, simple, and with perfect results!

Chef's Table BBQ

Have you ever seen the series called Chef's Table on Netflix?

Now the critically acclaimed series is delving into something near and dear to our hearts...

That's right, barbecue!

You get to look into the lives of real pitmasters and see what it takes to be the best. It's not all beer and barbecue; it's challenging but satisfying.

There are only four episodes so far, but they're outstanding. I highly recommend it.

It's called Chef's Table BBQ, and it's on Netflix.

You can check out the trailer here-Chef's Table BBQ Trailer.

Well, that's it for this edition of Barbecue Nuggets.

Until next time.

Happy cooking!

Wishing you all the best.
