McCormick Grill Mates KCBS Match-Up

Share this article:
June 16, 2014

McCormick Grill Mates has partnered with the Kansas City Barbeque Society to create the McCormick Grill Mates KCBS Match-Up, challenging the country’s top pitmasters to compete in a multi-city competition series and fire up their best beef dish using Montreal Steak Seasoning. The versatile blend of coarsely ground peppers, garlic and spices adds unique flavor to steaks, burgers and more for an unbeatable grilling experience. It’s a key ingredient for teams looking to get great-tasting food on the grates.

For those who want to create competition-worthy grilled meals at home, McCormick Grill Mates also offers wood-fired, island-inspired marinades for grilled chicken and chili-packed rubs for on-fire ribs, as well as a variety of other dry rubs, marinades and seasoning blends.

Ready to master the flame? The first event kicks off this weekend in Washington D.C. at the Safeway National Capital BBQ Battle. Registration for that event, as well as each of the other three events, is now open. For more information, and to register, visit: http://www.kcbs.us/grillmates.php
