"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." — CDYSTHE

light olive oil
apple cider vinegar
salt-free seasoning blend
hickory-flavored liquid smoke
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.
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 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!
I used this on Halibut and veggies on the grill and it was great. I will be using this alot this summer. I did not have whiskey on hand. I used Italian seasoning for the salt-free and Lawry's for the seasoned salt.
I was actually searching gluten free recipes and this one was included in the search. If you are gluten intolerant, make sure to read labels, as alot of these ingredients tend to not be gluten free.
I made this marinade for chicken while camping. I followed the recipe, w/the exception of omitting browning sauce, simply because I didn't have any. These were a nice tasting kabob. I didn't LOVE them (there was a flavor I didn't really care for; I think, perhaps, the *alcohol* taste from the whiskey?), but will perhaps, make them again if I'm looking to mix things up. TY for an interesting recipe!
Was pretty good. Left out the whiskey.
Delicious! We marinated a London Broil in this mixture for what turned out to be 2 days, and the flavor was wonderful. A tad on the sweet side for beef, so I added a few drops of hot sauce. I am dying to try this on chicken, exactly as written. I think the combination of ingredients would be absolutely perfect. Thanks so much, Christian!
