My favorite Marinades and Seasonings.
Well Lawrys has a Baja Chipolte marinade that we used on a flank steak. Let it marinade over night then grilled it to medium rare. Excellent flavor.
The also have a cuban marinade that a buddy of mine used on a pork roast. Injected it and let it sit over night, then put it on a rotisserie. I tell you this was REAL GOOD!
My favorite Seasonings is Susie Q's, out of Santa Maria. (http://www.susieqbrand.com) And I just recently ran across this guy . I liked the name of his seasoning. Looks almost just like Susie Q's, but he uses more pepper. I'll give it a try next time I do tri tip.

I use Pappy's
http://www.pappyschoice.com/
I just stumbled onto it because they sell it in front of the fish counter at Luckys grocery store.It is a little salty but I just use less and it goes farther.
I have been going down to Avila beach the last couple of years for a couple days vacation.next year I am going to stop in Santa Maria.
I am hoping that they will have a store with all the local products.
When I lived in Gilroy they had a shop like that.It was great.

I use a little Daddy Hinkle's for a quick deal now and again, but mostly, I make my own. My food A.D.D. won't generally allow me to use a bottled marinade without augmenting it, and all in one seasonings are too easy to emulate and adjust to your own preferences. If I am going to use a GP off the shelf rub, it will most likely be Head Country.

What kind do you use Paul, and on what?

Buddy of mine sent me the Prime Rib Rub (great on brisket too) and the Hot Spice Rub.

Anyone want to try these, let me know. I got a few empty containers I can fill, as these are 24oz shakers that will last me years.

bill i would love to try some, if you still have it? i tend to do my own seasonings slash love but one i definetly have to have is club house garlic plus. so many of those bottled seasonings look like seasoning salt, plus a little other love added to them, that you and i could do for cheaper and way better:msn-wink:

Paul, Pappy's has half salt and no salt choices for a lot of pappy's seasoniongs. Wifes family lives in Santa Maria area and I use Pappy's choice. Since I use coarse salt quite often, I use pappy's no salt seasonings. E.T.

I finally found some new rubs today over in Coweta. I stumbled across the "Blues Hog" dry rub. I think I'll fire up Latifah tomorrow see how good this stuff is. The taste test tells me it's going to be great. I bought another one, too. I can't remember the name of it.

I also picked up some Blues Hog rib sauce, too. It's gonna be good. :thumbs up:

Which sauce did you buy, Tennessee red or original?

I think it was the Tennessee Red. It's got quite a vinegar taste to it.

Pappys seasonings are really good. They are made fresh to order in Los Angeles.

Another good SoCal seasoning is Sweet Lou's. He makes his rubs at his house and sells them every Wednesday evening at some street fair in Glendora.

He has a roast rub that is real good as well as his Route 66 diner salt. He has a mess of different hand blended seasoningsranging from Tex-Mex to Jamaican and even a sugar N spice which is real good on flap jacks!

If anyone is interested:

SWLspices@aol.com or SWLspices@verizon.net or and ask for a seasoning price list and he will mail it out to you right away.

He is a nice old guy and his sister in Chicago has all his recipes so when the time comes and Lou is called home, his recipes will live on.

Local grocer here (Raley's / BelAir) has about 5 or so different flavors of Pappy's, but I am not sure which one you guys are talking about :(

The Pappys prime rib rub is real good stuff. I tried it for the first time on some tri-tips and they were awesome. I have also added a little brown sugar to it along with some fresh rosemary......man thats good!!

If I recall, Pappys also offers low sodium versions as well.
