McCormick Grill Mates Party

Tonight we were given an awesome opportunity from Crowdtap and McCormick to host a party featuring the newest McCormick Grill Mates!  I was really excited for this opportunity to try something new as we really never use "special" seasonings for our BBQ'd goodness.  McCormick provided all the Grill Mates and we just needed to add the meat and friends!

Mr Elias enjoyed the ball pit for the entire party:

                                    Some of us hanging out with the babies while the men manned the grill!

                                                                    Grilling deliciousness!

                                            Mmmm, one of our favorites - pulled pork!

                                              The first official taste tester and man is he cute!

                                                                 The very yummy spread!

                                        The Spiced Brandy Ginger Marinated Chicken Breasts

                                      Burgers with Montreal Steak and Molasses Bacon Seasonings

The definite crowd favorite of Memphis Pit BBQ Rub.  Super easy too.  3 lbs pork shoulder, we put the rub on it the night before and wrapped it up for the evening.  This morning we put it in the slow cooker with 1 cup of Coke and let it cook on low for 8 hours.  It was pretty yummy!

             And the second favorite of the evening, the Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauced Chicken Legs!

It was a very fun evening with lots of really yummy BBQ!  So check out these Grill Mates (which I highly recommend) they are the newest flavors in the Grill Mates "family" of products!
