OLD BETHPAGE, N.Y., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mr. Bar-B-Q®, www.MrBarBQ.com, a Blue Rhino brand and the world's expert in designing innovative, premier barbecue accessories and outdoor lifestyle tools, announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued a U.S. patent for the company's Marinade & Serving Caddy.
The Marinade & Serving Caddy features FLIP & FLAVOR™, a universal locking lid that allows both sides of foods to be marinated with a flip of a tray. Marinating waves allow the marinade to flow around all parts of the meat, not just the bottom. The three-piece set, which includes marinade and serving trays as well as the locking lid, is a simple way to marinate and store foods in the refrigerator for later use, and then to serve and store grilled foods.
The trays are easily identified with "marinade" and "grilled" markings to avoid cross contamination of raw and cooked foods. In addition, dry erase markers can be used on a tray to note the name of the dish, the time and day the food was put in the marinade, or when the stored leftovers were first cooked. Foods with acids, alcohol or salt should be marinated no more than two hours; meat left in the tray too long can start to chemically "cook."
Mr. Bar-B-Q's Marinade & Serving Caddy joins more than 400 SKUs of 'Everything for the Grill'™—from deluxe tool sets and brushes to grilling accessories—and will be available soon at retailers throughout the U.S., including Macy's and Lowe's. The full product line can be found at www.MrBarBQ.com.
"Mr. Bar-B-Q is proud to hold more than 200 U.S. patents," said Marc Zemel, president, Blue Rhino Products US, "and we will continue our commitment to offer innovative products that make barbecuing fun, easy and appealing to grillers at all levels."
