Seasoning Grilled Food

Even at their most basic, with nothing more than a little salt and pepper, foods prepared on the grill can be delicious. But with a few simple extra touches -- the addition of herbs, spices, or seasonings, the use of marinades, rubs or sauces, and/or the addition of wood chips for a distinct smoky flavor -- your grilled foods can quickly transform from simply delicious to simply spectacular!

Herbs, Spices & Seasonings

Frontier offers a full array of Grilling Seasonings for guaranteed delicious (and convenient!) grilling flavor.

Frontier's seasoning blends will also turn a plain barbeque into something special: try packaged All-Purpose Seasonings (Herby, Mama Garlic, and Pepperman), or Barbeque Seasoning, and ethnic specialties like Cajun Seasoning and Blackened Creole Blend.

Ways to add spice to your grilled foods:

•  Add to the pre-grilling soaking water for vegetables and fruits.
•  Combine with melted butter for basting.
•  Include in marinades.
•  Add to fish, vegetable or fruit foil dishes.
•  Use directly as a rub.
