Garlicky Barbecue Marinade

"Building layer upon layer of flavor is absolutely crucial to great barbecue," says Adam Perry Lang. For the first layer, he usually slathers on a marinade or wet rub the night before cooking. To save time, you can let the meat marinate at room temperature for up to 4 hours rather than refrigerating overnight.
