McCormick® Flavor Forecast® 2013: Grilling Edition Fires Up A New BBQ Season

SPARKS, Md., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bold grill masters looking to elevate their game on the grates this summer needn't look any further than the new McCormick ® Grill Mates ® & Lawry's ® Flavor Forecast ® 2013: Grilling Edition. From a global leader in flavor, this grilling report identifies the top tastes, trends and techniques that will be inspiring backyard cooks all season long. Smoke & spice pairings, grilled fruit drinks and DIY condiments are among the list of trends that will be sizzling on barbeques across the country.

"Now everyone can discover a few easy, new tricks to bring these tasty and trendy flavors to their outdoor meals," said Chef Mark Garcia of the McCormick Kitchens. "For example, grilling lemons before adding to lemonade imparts a smoky flavor to a classic summer beverage. And using pecan wood chips on the grill brings a sweet, nutty intensity to chicken, pork or vegetables and pairs beautifully with a molasses bacon seasoning."
