How To Use “Flavor Profiles”
To Create The Perfect Cookout Or Barbecue

Here at Superstar Cookout Menus, we believe the key to a fantastic cookout or barbecue is to have food choices that go well together and flavors that compliment each other. And what better way to ensure your cookout is a success than to use well-known, time-tested flavor profiles.

For our purposes, a “flavor profile” is the immediately identifiable combination of flavors that define a specific cuisine. It is how different regional ingredients are put together to create a unique and memorable dining experience.

For example, the idea of “Mexican food” conjures different food images and produces the anticipation of different flavors than if I say “Asian food” or “Cajun food”.

Ideally, creating the perfect cookout menu should be as simple as possible. To simplify the process, we create fictitious restaurants with flavor profiles famous the world over. As a result, each restaurant has a collection of recipes and food choices that makes creating the perfect cookout menu a snap.

Just put together a menu from the same flavor profile “restaurant”, and you are sure to have a memorable cookout or backyard BBQ that keeps your friends and family talking for weeks to come.

Southern BBQ Flavor Profile:
Southern Seasonin' BBQ Barn


Is it time to throw a Southern BBQ party? Simply head to the Southern Seasonin' BBQ Barn flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to transport you to the American South which is known for great food that never disappoints.

Flavor Profile: Classic American, Southern barbecue, Soul Food, Comfort Food

Inspiration: Southern charm and a whiff of hickory-smoke means your in for a comfort food treat. The south is known for a wide variety of BBQ flavors, generous portions and the enviable problem of not being able to pick your favorite BBQ style.

Think of casual eating establishments that have been around for years because of their great food. There is a reason these types of establishments have customers that come back for years, and your cookout guests are sure to enjoy these menu offerings as well.

My Take: A wide variety of barbecued meats (especially pork and chicken), multiple sauces and hearty portions of side dishes that stick to your ribs.
