We’ve talked about how useful a bundle of fresh herbs can be as a basting brush while you’re at the BBQ. BrightNest has another way you can use herbs as your secret weapon: Soak them and put them right on the BBQ. The smoke smells amazing, imparts flavours, and can even keep insects away.

You’ll want to soak your herbs first. Bundles of sage and rosemary are good for this, since they can take the heat once wet, and smell fantastic while they smoke. Lay them directly on the coals while the herbs are still damp. Once the smoke has cleared a little, go ahead and grill as usual. The process is a bit like adding soaked wood chips to your coals — you don’t infuse every inch of your food with smoky flavour, but you do get enough to be noticeable.
