Chicken, pork, beef, fish…you name it! Our ‘Awesome’ blend is awesome on anything! What started as our signature grilling seasoning has become one of our most popular blends amongst customers and LifeSpice employees alike. It features salty and savory flavors that add dimension and bring out the flavor in any dish, from a breakfast omelet to your favorite soups or weekend kebabs. 

Awesome Beer Brined Chicken Wings 

Recipe: Megan Marshall


  • 2 Tbs. Kosher Salt
  • 3 Tbs. Awesome Anything LifeSpice Seasoning Blend
  • 2 cans Beer, (we used Bell’s Oberon but any beer you enjoy would work!)
  • 3 -4 lbs. whole Chicken Wings


  1. Whisk together beer, salt and seasoning blend. Place chicken in a large ziplock bag and pour liquid over top. Refrigerate overnight, turning over at least once to ensure all wings soak up the same amount of brine.
  2. Prep smoker or grill to 215°F and smoke wings for approximately 2 hours. Internal temperature needs to be at least 165°F and skin should be crisp.

Awesome Short Ribs

Recipe: Adapted by LifeSpice from Alison Roman’s NYT Cooking Garlic Braised Short Ribs with Red Wine


  • LifeSpice Awesome Anything Seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 lbs. Bone In Short Rib
  • 1 head Garlic
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • 1 Carrot, chopped
  • 2 ribs Celery, chopped
  • 1.5 Tbs. Tomato Paste
  • 1 cup Dry Red Wine
  • 1 cup Beef Broth or Stock
  • 4 sprigs Thyme
  • Chives and Lemon Zest to garnish


  1. Heat your oven to 275°F. Season your short ribs liberally on all sides with Awesome Anything seasoning, and a small amount of salt and pepper.
  2. In a dutch oven, heat a high heat neutral oil over medium-high heat and, working in batches, sear each side of the short ribs. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Slice your garlic head in half crosswise, and cook in same dutch oven, cut sides down, over medium heat until golden brown. Add onion, celery, and carrot and cook until softened.
  4. Add tomato paste and stir to coat until caramelized. Add red wine and deglazed pan, scraping browned bits from the bottom of your dutch oven. Simmer for 2 minutes, and then add beef stock. Add your short ribs back to broth, along with your thyme, and bring to a simmer. Cover and remove from heat.
  5. Transfer to your oven and cook, undisturbed, until meat is fall-off-the-bone tender, about 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, and top with broth, chives, and lemon zest.
