Instructions to Flame broil Watermelon

Flame broiled watermelon sounded unusual to me from the start as well, yet the barbecue caramelizes the melon’s pleasantness and gives it an inconspicuous, smoky flavor. Combined with a sweet and zesty flavoring, flame broiled watermelon can be a fascinating side dish or an astounding treat.

Watermelon for barbecuing ought to be cut into triangles with the skin appended, as steaks of watermelon will in general self-destruct when flipped and turned with tongs on the flame broil. A smaller than expected watermelon (something under five pounds) gives the ideal measure of watermelon for four to six individuals.

Flavor the sugar with salt, some lime pizzazz, and red pepper drops, and sprinkle this on the watermelon when flame broiling. You can stir up the flavoring anyway you see fit — earthy colored sugar, lime, and cumin is another of my preferred blends.
