On June 6, we decided to have a little shindig to try out some new McCormick Grill Mates products and celebrate a certain 31 year old's birthday.
Thanks to another great opportunity from Crowdtap, I got a McCormick Grill Mates Grill Ambassadors party kit, including Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce, Spiced Brandy & Herb marinade, Memphis Pit BBQ Rub, Molasses Bacon Seasoning and Montreal Steak Seasoning, and some recipes.
The menu that I decided on included:
  • Brown Sugar Bourbon Ribs using the Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce
  • Bacon Turkey Burgers with Pineapple Aioli using the Molasses Bacon Seasoning
  • Burgers using the Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Grilled Veggies
  • Grilled Corn on the Cob
  • Cous Cous with tomatoes
I never made ribs, so I was a little worried at how they would turn out.  Thanks to the Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce, they turned out AMAZING.  And the interesting combination of the Molasses Bacon Seasoning in a Turkey Burger with Pineapple Aioli was also amazing. We finished with a little birthday dessert.  Everyone had a great time, and left feeling full.

Aidan and Matthew also filled their bellies before playing a little soccer and enjoying the swings and slide.
