Giveaway: McCormick's Grill Mates Package

Grass is growing, birds are singing, temperatures are rising, the sun sets later every night and outdoor cooking is getting into full swing. McCormick's is wanting to help one lucky Nibble Me This reader kick their grilling season into gear by giving away this sample package.


This package includes the following new Grill Mates rubs, marinade mixes and Lawry's bottled marinades that I have utilized during the past week.

Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade
Goes with beef, chicken, pork or shrimp. I used it to grill this flank steak. We thought it had very good flavor but I'd suggest adding 1 Tbsp of bourbon when mixing up the wet and dry ingredients if you're looking for that mellow bite of real bourbon.
Lawry's Szechuan Sweet and Sour BBQ
Great for chicken, pork, or beef. This marinade quickly brought flavor and that classic sweet and sour color to grilled chicken. If you are tired of your normal grilled chicken, shake things up and use this marinade and serve with stir fried veggies and sweet jasmine rice. That's what we did.
Apple Wood Rub
Apple and pork go together like.....well, like Pete Brady said on the Brady Bunch, "Pork chops and apple saaauuuuche". So I used this rub to grill some boneless pork chops and used one of our standard glazes. It produced a nice flavor that complimented the chops but didn't make them too strong.

Lawry's Tuscan Sun Dried Tomato with Minced Garlic and Olive Oil

I used this rustic marinade on some fantastic grilled chicken breasts with some Tuscan fries and grilled zucchini. I think this one was Brett's favorite.

Smokehouse Maple Rub
This smoky and sweet spice rub really delivered on a half rack of smoked spare ribs.

Mexican Fiesta Marinade
You could use this one for beef or chicken fajitas on the grill. I used it to make chimichangas with fajita chicken, beans, cheese, roasted peppers, and served with a southwestern queso sauce for dipping.

  6. the Sizzlin' Steak Burgers recipe caught my eye! It sounds so good. I've never really tried any special seasonings in my burgers. We usually just do a little salt and pepper or onion soup mix.

  8. You know what caught my eye was the Montreal Turkey Burger. The only way I would ever eat that would be if I was stuck in the airport and somebody had already eaten the carboard signs. Yuck.

    P.S. I was Krogering tonight and saw that they have those circular cast-iron kebab holders. I know you wanted some of those awhile back. It was in the seasonal/holiday aisle. I hope you can find them in your local Kroger store.

  20. I had no idea until your posts that McCormick had this wide variety of rubs and seasonings for grilling and I've been drooling over your posts so definitely count me in on this! I'm digging those Applewood Rubbed Ribs over there for sure, although I gotta admit there are some great recipes over there.
