"This was a really good marinade and gave the chicken a lot of flavor. Unfortunately, I left it on the grill a little too long. I will be trying this again soon."

"This was an ok marinade, not alot of flavour left after it was barbequed. Perhaps it wpuld have been better in a frying pan. The meat really dried out."

"This is excellent on chicken or pork. I cut the garlic salt in half & replace the other half with garlic powder. I also use fresh oregano and parsley from the garden."
