The Best Low Sodium Grill Seasonings for Steak and Chicken
If you haven’t guessed by now, I love to grill! Compared to other cooking techniques, it is one of the more healthier ways to prepare food. It also brings out natural flavors of the food being cooked, and it is a techniques where you can infuse flavors from the grill via smoking or the use of different fuels for the fire. Today I want to talk about another layer of flavor for the grill: the best low sodium grill seasonings. Weber has salt free blends for chicken and steak.
I am always thrilled to find new seasonings for grilling as well, and pretty much I get excited whenever I find any new product in a store where I shop regularly. Most low sodium people will share that it is extremely hard to find the low sodium products as they are typically hidden in with all the other products requiring shopping trips to become somewhat arduous. Hopefully soon grocers will include low sodium choices in highlighted areas such as many gluten-free items are able to be these days.
My Review of the Salt Free Grilling Spices by Weber:
SO imagine my surprise when I cam across an entire end cap, and saw an entire pallet of Weber’s new Salt Free Grill Seasonings at Sam’s Club! I grabbed both the Steak and the Chicken Seasonings (in fact I grabbed a couple of each, as you fellow low sodium hunters know, sometimes a product goes missing on a store shelf, or is sold out and not replenished).
I put both to the test now on several occasions over the last few weeks. The Weber Salt Free Steak Seasoning was used on pork, beef, and chicken. I used the chicken seasoning on pork, chicken, and fish.
The steak seasoning has garlic and onion, then a multitude of peppers that give it more of a southwest dry rub taste. It is nicely smoky and peppery at the same time. It paired nicely with some mesquite chips for smoking the meat. it is a seasoning that provides a nice layer of flavor, but does not overpower the meat it is used to season.
The Weber Salt Free Chicken Seasoning has garlic and onion as well. It also has some chili and red bell pepper for some mild heat. The orange peel, oil and citric acid, add a hint of sweetness. I took the sweetness up a notch with the chicken and fish by adding lemon juice. I added cider vinegar to the pork. The chicken seasoning also was nice when I also used some cherry wood chips and apple chips to smoke in the grill as well.
The Final Results
The final report, is that these are the best grill seasonings for steak and chicken i have found recently. I highly recommend these seasonings. They season your proteins nicely by themselves, but they are not at all overpowering. Both mix in nicely when you want to layer on flavor levels with smoke, vinegar or fruit juices.
