As you know, our goal is to target at least three distinct flavor notes with our blends. For BELT FED, those flavors are Sweet, Salty, Zesty with No Heat!
As you know, we take our flavor game as serious as it gets. Let's just say we tend to push it to the max...
One night in June, I was out to dinner with my family and I ordered a thick ribeye with veggie on the side. The chefs choice for the veggie option was corn on the cob.
Now, being from Western Pennsylvania, I grew up on meat and corn. When the waiter brought the corn out, I was less than impressed. The corn sat there watery, waxy, dull, plain, and I wanted nothing more but to dump it in the trash. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and took a few bites. although it tasted "ok", I thought to myself, "I wish I had some seasonings with me."
The idea was born...
The next day, my team and I began work on the BELT FED concept.
Why stop at salt and pepper when we've found that a light dusting of smokey paprika, celery and dill, and some onion makes corn taste like nothing you've ever eaten?
Like I said above, we tend to push it to the max...
Buy a one-way ticket, because with a simple dusting of BELT FED and you're never goin' back. :-)
Now, I know... I know... "But, Casey.... corn is corn, bro."
Just wait until you see the pictures and recipe I'm going to share with you later in the week... Trust me when I say it, you're going to love it.
Butter warm corn, and then dust an ample amount of BELT FED over the entire cob!
INGREDIENTS: Sea Salt, Sugar, Paprika, Celery Seed, Onion, Black Pepper, Garlic, Dill Seed, Rice Flour, and Paprika Oleoresin. GLUTEN FREE (This product does not contain gluten-containing ingredients.)
I cannot and will not eat corn with any other spices besides belt fed ever again. The flavor profile is so perfectly balanced I can't imagine how this could be improved. My Mom who thinks that tap water can be spicy absolutely loves this one and that speaks volumes to me lol.
I was stoked to try this, but honestly was wondering if it would end up being a one trick pony. That is to say, possibly only good on corn. That was NOT the case at all. This stuff is my new go to seasoning for an and all vegetables I'm cooking. Knocked it out of the park as always.
I saw the reviews and figured yeah yeah, it’s corn everyone just calm down. I’m sure it’s good but really.. relax. I’m here to tell you I was wrong. This stuff really is amazing. Amazing enough that I wrote a review. Corn is no longer just a bbq standard side dish. Now, I look forward to it like it’s the main course. Thanks TACCAL!!
The amount of flavor it adds to my meals is amazing and I can't imagine cooking without it now!
Whether it’s the Belt Fed seasoning, the Candy Apple barbecue sauce, the Adirondack Smoke seasoning or any other products from Tacticalories, I love them all, I use them consistently with great results every time, thank you for finally producing spices and sauces that take the barbecue game to another level!!!
