If You’re serious About BBQ and Don’t Have a proper Boning Knife You’re Doing Yourself A disservice

A boning knife makes trimming any large cut of beef infinitely easier.

I finally bought one after always using different, inferior for the job, knives.

Let me tell you it’s an absolute game changer.

I got a 5 inch Victorinox Boning Knife just ahead of the holidays to trim the Bone-In Roasts we enjoyed Christmas eve and Christmas Day.

Total game changer. Made short work and the agility it affords you with the shape and flexibility can not be understated.

It may seem like a silly thing but once you use one you’ll be totally aggravated when trying to trim a brisket , pork butt, tenderloin or roast without one.

Trust me on this one, you 100% should have one in your knife drawer if you do any amount of breaking down or trimming large cuts of meat.

Why haven’t I made compound butter before? here’s what to do with those leftover fresh herbs you buy at The supermarket.

I see you compound butter.

It’s sooooo easy and sooooo satisfying. You gotta try it.

Leave a stick of butter (or more if you want to make a bunch) on the counter for at least a half hour to soften.

Put it in a bowl in the microwave for 12 seconds to soften further.

Cut into chunks in the bowl.

Mix in whatever herbs and seasonings you think would go well together.

I used finely chopped rosemary and thyme, crushed up and minced garlic, red pepper flakes, coarse black pepper and salt. (Use whatever appeals to you)

Then place it back on the butter wrapper and fold up and place back in the fridge for when you are ready to use it. Some people I see on youtube videos roll it up into tubes on parchment paper. It looks a little fancier but I didn’t have any.

It’s so simple I suggest you give it a whirl. I’m looking forward to experimenting with different ingredients and using it on some home cooked bread.
