McCormick Grill Mates, Baltimore, Md., in partnership with Sigma U.S., introduced new McCormick Grill Mates Marinated Bacon, marinated with Grill Mates marinades and seasoned with Grill Mates seasonings.

The pork is marinated to soak in flavor, then smoked with natural hardwood smoke, sliced thick and seasoned with a blend of McCormick Grill Mates seasonings. 

“Marinating has been bringing more flavor to steak, chicken and pork for years, so it made great sense to do the same with bacon,” says Jeff Gaunt, marketing director at Sigma U.S. “Our 3-step process delivers more flavor than bacon that is only smoked, making it easy for consumers to enjoy a bacon that tastes better than any bacon they’ve had before.”

Ultimate Bacon is marinated and seasoned with extra bacon flavor.

Montreal Steak uses a robust blend of pepper, garlic and spices.

Smoky Applewood combines the sweet, smoky blend of chili pepper, garlic and Applewood smoke flavor.

And, the Brown Sugar Bourbon bacon entails a blend of sweet brown sugar, bourbon, red bell peppers and spices.

“What makes this new product truly innovative among bacon everywhere is the fact that it’s marinated,” says Gaunt. “Other bacons on the market are typically flavored just with smoke. We are adding two additional steps to enhance flavor, introducing a new type of bacon that everyone is going to fall in love with.”
