Grill Mates Seasoning and Marinade Review

As a member of Crowdtap, I was recently chosen to host a Grill Mates-sponsored grill out to try out some of their new and old meat seasonings and marinades! First we grilled out steaks for Independence Day and used the traditional Montreal Steak seasoning and it was GREAT as usual! I grew up with Montreal Steak seasoning, so to me, steak just isn't good steak withouth Montreal Steak haha. Yes, I did think the steak looked like the great United States so I cut off some pieces to make it look better just for July 4th!
Next we tried some deeelicious Molasses Bacon seasoning in our burgers and I have to say, it tasted great! Usually I don't like things with bacon on burgers, but I could taste it and Grill Mates did an awesome job with their seasoning! For ourselves, we put our burgers on Rudi's Flatz bread which for our burgers I actually preferred to regular burger buns, but for our party we tried it on King's Hawaiian burger buns which was pretty good too!
For our BBQ on base we used the Molasses Bacon on our burgers like I mentioned previously and it was a huge hit! Grill Mates gave our meat that extra kick it needed and I felt like a great cook without having to do much!! Our party guests raved that the seasoning added great flavor to the meat and was very tasty and perfect! I agree! One even said it made his "lips juicy!" Haha. That's JUST what you want in a good burger!
Today we tried some grilled chicken that marinated for a day in Grill Mates Spiced Brandy and Herb marinade and it was soooo good! I have to admit, it was some of the best chicken I had ever had. My husband went crazy over it and wouldn't even use the barbecue sauce because it wasn't even needed with the marinade. The marinated chicken came out so tender and perfectly seasoned even I was surprised! I highly recommend this product! I did use the Brown Sugar Bourbon barbecue sauce just to try it and it was pretty tasty! I would say use either the marinade or the sauce but both were great! I really enjoyed tonight's meal!
