Christian's Killer BBQ and Grill Marinade


"This marinade has developed over some time. Now it's perfect. If I change something it's not as good. It's perfect on all meats, and gives that wonderful taste you get sometimes when served professionally prepared grilled and BBQ'ed food. With this one it's 'always' though! This marinade stores well."

Iused it for beef K bobs and dinner guests. It was a great hit. Ihave then used it on Chicken breast on the grill and they were good. This takes a lot of stuff but was worth the trouble. I'll use it again this weekend


This is a killer marinade - absolutely loved it and it was worth the effort! I cut the recipe in half, but still kept the liquid smoke at 1 Tbsp. I used italian seasoning for the salt free seasoning, dijon for the prepared mustard and minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I marinated chicken thighs and drumsticks for a day and a half. The chicken was very moist, full of flavor and had a rich caramel color coming off the grill.


This is wonderful! We really like it for chicken; we marinate whole chickens for a day and then set them on a half full can of beer on the barbeque (indirect method). My WHOLE family (husband, kids and grandkids) and our friends just love what we now call "Beer Butt Chicken" and this marinade recipe makes it!
