There was a Fire in the Belly of the Beast

This year we bought what we lovingly term "The Beast." It is our new 2-in-1 grill. Half of the grill is gas and the other half is charcoal. I love it not only for the yummy foods you can grill on it, but because there are less dishes for me to wash.

One of our favorite things to grill is chicken marinated in McCormick's Grill Mates. We have tried several and absolutely love the taste it gives the chicken. It is also super easy - you simply add oil, water, and at times vinegar to the mix and let your chicken, pork, fish, lamb or beef marinate. The package has about a 15 minute suggestion to let your meat marinate, but I like to do it for longer than that to let the goodness soak into the meat.

They have all kinds of flavors for all kinds of meat.

-Baja Citrus Marinade (salmon, seafood or chicken)
-Chipotle Pepper Marinade (pork, chicken or beef)
-Hawaiian Luau Marinade (chicken, pork or salmon)
-Hickory BBQ Marinade (chicken or pork)
-Mesquite Marinade (chicken, pork or beef) *Our favorite*
-Mexican Fiesta Marinade (chicken, beef or shrimp)
-Mojito Lime Marinade (chicken, beef or shrimp)
-Montreal Steak Marinade (beef, pork or lamb) *Our other favorite*
-Peppercorn Garlic (beef, pork or lamb)
-Southwest Marinade (beef, chicken or pork)
-Teriyaki Marinade (chicken, pork, beef or seafood)
-Tomato Garlic Basil Marinade (chicken, shrimp or beef)
-Zesty Herb Marinade (pork chops, chicken or beef)
