McCormick Grill Mates BBQ and Pool Party

Hi there friends!

This Memorial Day weekend we celebrated with a BBQ and Pool Party!
The star of the show…. McCormick’s Grill Mates new spices and seasonings!

 The McCormick Grill Mates kit that I received via CrowdTap included:

  • Party Booklet
  • Grill Mates® Spiced Brandy & Herb Marinade
  • Grill Mates® Slow and Low Memphis Pit BBQ Rub
  • Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning Blend
  • Grill Mates® Molasses Bacon Seasoning Blend
  • Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce

We invited family and friends over to enjoy a delicious dinner and take a swim in our new pool!
My husband had to work that Saturday… (BOO!) but I had plenty of help preparing the food!

The meal included steaks, beef ribs, beef & shrimp kabobs as the main entrees.
My father in law and brothers in law manned the grill outside while the ladies prepared everything else in the kitchen.


Adding Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce to the ribs

My favorite dish was definitely the beef and shrimp kabobs. Seasoned with the Spiced Brandy and Herb Marinade from McCormick Grill Mates, they had a strong, delicious flavor!!

Preparing the Spiced Brandy and Herb marinaded kabob meats

 The steaks were seasoned with the McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak and Molasses Bacon seasoning.
SO delicious! All of the seasonings added the best flavor to the meats!

The only downside was that I had planned on dining out in the backyard, but the wind picked up too much for that… So inside it was. But that was OK too. 😉

We just moved the tables and chairs inside to the living room and carried on! 🙂

It was the perfect Saturday afternoon with family and friends! 
We laughed, we ate, the kiddos swam…

  1. I’m totally jealous of your pool! I’m determined to convince Ryan that we need to get one like that for our backyard. I think maybe I can swing it this year, if I’m persistent 🙂
