Grill Masters Club Review June 2024

Grill Masters Club has done it again! Their “Smoke + Spice” box definitely hit the mark because my husband was ready to steal it the second he saw it in my office. If you’ve got a spouse (or Father, or friend) who loves their grill as much as they love you – then Grill Masters Club needs to be on your radar.

With Father’s Day coming up, this is an especially great box to gift – choose from an ongoing subscription that can be totally customized, or a one-time gift box and send the gift of deliciousness.

Grill Masters Club truly does deliver The Ultimate BBQ Experience and they make it fun by theming the boxes, incorporating loads of creative recipes, pro tips, discounts, and more all in each value packed box.

They kindly sent us this box for review.

This month’s theme is “Smoke + Spice” and since May was the National BBQ Month, they wanted to bring in some of the classics. Here’s a peek at the May 2024 Grill Masters Club…

Recipe Booklet: The recipe booklet includes a variety of recipes for each of the sauces, seasonings, and rubs included in this month’s box, plus some Itmaster Pro Tips (seriously so cool!) and a bonus recipe to make Smoke Fried BBQ Potatoe Chips. My kids are gonna love those!  I always appreciate the quality of the recipe booklet. It’s not flimsy or made of cheap paper that will disintegrate if it gets wet.  It’s heavy-duty and will stand up to sauce spills or sticky fingers – so it can be kept and referred back to time after time.

Chicago Blue BBQ Sauce by Old Southern BBQ: This small batch made sauce is made with the highest quality premium ingredients by a 3rd generation pitmaster and now family run business. I love that! Described as “mild & tangy” that sounds right up my alley. I especially appreciate that it’s free from high fructose corn syrup (that stuff is everywhere, isn’t it?) and bonus that it’s also gluten free. This is such a versatile, staple – can be used on ribs, chicken, pork, brisket…or anything really.  I’m excited about this one.

Lane’s Brisket Rub: Even though it’s made for Brisket, it’s also totally delicious on beef ribs, pork shoulder, chicken, burgers, steak, roasted potatoes, or eggs. Hello, yum. I love the idea of using a flavor-packed seasoning like this on my breakfast eggs! It’s a savory blend of black pepper, salt, garlic, thyme, and paprika. With ingredients like that, you could literally use this on anything and it’d be delicious! I know this one will be well-loved.

Lane’s “Itsa Vinegar” Sauce: From the same company as the Brisket rub, this is a really cool find! A modern take on a classic southern favorite this sauce has an apple vinegar base and a tangy twist. Perfect for adding flavor to grilled meats or using it as a marinade. I love that this sauce is so versatile – it can even be used on a salad, as a dipping sauce, or as a fun stir-fry twist. I really love this one, it’s not spicy at all, and I know my whole family will enjoy it.

Smoked Sweetness Rub by Rainier Foods: This might be my new favorite seasoning – it’s got brown sugar, smoked paprika, and chipotle pepper (that’s my favorite!) and it’s SO good on veggies!  Yes, of course, you can use it on meat too – but I loved it on our grill-roasted veggies and I even added a little dash to my baked potato today and that was just the kick it needed.  There’s also a recipe in the booklet for Florida White Sauce and I am here for it! This seasoning, along with the Brisket rub, Itsa Vinegar sauce, and a few pantry staples – I can’t wait to make it this week.

Steven Raichlen’s Project Smoke Apple Smoke-In-A-Can: This is such a cool way to turn a regular grill into a smoker! Just open the can and place it in the grill. The apple wood will start smoking within 5 minutes and infuse that yummy smoky flavor into whatever you’re cooking! What a neat idea.

Grill Masters Club Review June 2024 – Final Thoughts

The Smoke + Spice box was another hit for Grill Masters Club and the creative spin on all the classics.  I love the versatility and the super delicious recipes included such as Smoked Mac & Cheese, 18 hour Brisket, and Weekday Pork Butt with Loaded Baked Potatoes. Yes, please!
