Spit roast tips: Basting

Basting your roast is a great technique to keep your meat nice and moist, and of course, it adds even more incredible flavour. We’ve even been told that a slightly overcooked roast turns out moist if you’ve been religious with your basting!

Spitmaster Terry McEvoy recommends this simple basting sauce recipe (recommended for beef or lamb)…

  • ½ cup beer
  • ½ cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 good slugs of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Celery salt

Simply mix all ingredients and brush on your roast every 20 minutes or so.
