It is frustrating when reviewers give a negative review because there are ingredients in a recipe that they don't like. Why bother trying the recipe to begin with if you don't like some of the ingredients that are obviously going to stand out in the finished product? For those of you who are trying to decide whether or not to try this, let me just tell you that the 12 people I had for dinner last night thought it was really good. Had barbecued skewers of boneless chicken thighs marinaded for over 6 hours in this recipe, and skewers of beef tenderloin marinated in different recipe, both were a hit, but the chicken was the overall favorite. I had 16 thighs so I doubled the recipe and used regular soy sauce, so to account for the higher sodium soy sauce I omitted the garlic salt. And instead of minced garlic added five gloves of pressed garlic, I like garlic, and it certainly was not too much for anyone at the table. This is a great marinade for smokey bbq chicken thighs, definitely a keeper, and as the Japanese would say, "bursts with unami". However, I don't recommend it to anyone who doesn't like a good hint of smoke, or garlic, or soy sauce, or...lol, I'm sure you get the point. But if you don't have any issues with the list of ingredients, and you like barbecued chicken thighs, then by all means give this marinade a try. If you're concerned about the smoke, or salt, reduce the quantities the first time you try it, but I would recommend that you try it.
