1 shallot, minced

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1 and 1/2 cups fresh tarragon chopped

BBQ Shopping Tip

To add lots of flavor without a whole lot of fuss, try purchasing some steak seasoning.

BBQ Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
