Tastes that will define your summer: Flavours of BBQ in 2015

Our flavour experts have been busy examining what herbs and spices will be the ones to watch this year, and we've defined four delicious flavour combinations for you to try out just in time for BBQ season. Keep reading for more inspiration:

Citrus Sour

Fresh hints of zesty citrus are fantastic for livening up your BBQ meat. Why not make a marvellous marinade using a sachet of Grill Mates, some oil and a squeeze of sour lemon? Besides the delicious taste, the acidic quality of citrus fruits; like lime, help break and tenderise tougher cuts ensuring your meat stays juicy.

Hot Aromatic

If you're a fiend for spicy food, you'll love experimenting with Hot Aromatic flavours on the grill this summer. Fiery spices like chilli and cayenne pepper help bring out the mouth-watering aroma of all kinds of meat. Spice up your life and try this feeling hot hot hot with Cajun Marinade Mix.

Sticky Sweet

When it comes to beautiful BBQ food, texture is just as important as taste. There's nothing as joyful as digging into a rack of ribs with reckless abandon (might want to stock up on the napkins though). Simply add honey or molasses to your marinade for a hint of sweetness. Try this sticky and delicious Grill Mates Deep South Brown Sugar Marinade mix.

Smokey Spice

Food tastes extra rich and delicious cooked over charcoal. For a taste-boosting burst of flavour, grab Grill Mates Smokey Texan seasoning and fire up that grill! Where there's smoke there's fire....But sometimes it's the Seasoning.
