birthday giveaway: planters spice collection!

***This giveaway is now closed.  Thanks for your participation!!***

Indeed.  I am now the ripe old age of 27.  :)  So to celebrate, and to celebrate Gimme Some Oven’s new Facebook page, we’re doing a giveaway!!!

I’m super excited about this one, as it has been sponsored by one of my favorite local spice and gardening stores – Planters!  Located in the heart of Kansas City’s downtown City Market, this is my favorite place in town to buy spices, seasonings, my oh-so-favorite blackening powder, and fresh herb and veggie plans galore!  They also have a fantastic website, where any of you non-locals can check out their selection.

For this giveaway, though, thought it would be fun to feature some of Planters’ most popular rubs that Kansas City (and especially KC bbq!) is famous for, including:

  • Applewood Smoke Rub
  • BBQ Spice
  • Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
  • Lemon Herb
  • Mequite Seasoning
  • Rotisserie Seasoning
  • Steak Seasoning
  • Tequila Lime Seasoning

So enter to win, and have an extra-fun time grilling and cooking this summer!!!  (Read below for details.)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! ¡FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS! FELIZ ANIVERSÁRIO! JOYEAUX ANNIVERSAIRE! BUON COMPLEANNO! 생일축하 합니다! I wish I were 27…sigh. Embrace your last few years of Twentydom! :D

    My fav spice would be Lawry’s Seasoning Salt; however, I would love to try the Jerk Seasoning and BBQ rub you mentioned in the post. YUM!

    I have to say that Lemon Herb sounds fantastic! I love to make lemon pepper fish and that sounds like it would just take it to the next level!!

    Happy Birthday Ali! I miss you!

    The applewood smoke rub or the mesquite seasoning sound delicious! But my favorite spice is cumin or cinnamon.

  4. Susie — May 4, 2010 @ 6:31 pm (#)

    Applewood smoke sounds great! In my kitchen I am always using McCormick’s rotisserie chicken seasoning and smoked paprika. Yum!

  5. Emma — May 4, 2010 @ 7:22 pm (#)

    I recognized those Planter’s spices as soon as I saw the bags! As for my favorite spice…it’s so hard to choose! But I think I’d have to say ginger.

  6. saveur — May 4, 2010 @ 7:41 pm (#)

    The Lemon Herb seasoning sounds delicious! That would be my favourite to use. :)

  7. James — May 4, 2010 @ 7:57 pm (#)

    Happy birthday! What a great idea for a giveaway. My favorite would be the curry powder – it can be so difficult to find a good curry powder mix, but it can really make or break a dish!

  8. aletta — May 5, 2010 @ 8:25 am (#)

    gran garlic, paprika, pinch of cumin, salt, pepper, pinch of cayenne. mortar and pestle and put in a zip top. Great on rump roasts, steaks, pork. Yum!

  9. Tammy S — May 5, 2010 @ 10:12 am (#)

    The Creole Seasoning sounds lovely, but then so does the French Fry Seasoning – I’m Hungry!
    And Happy Birthday!

    I always love a good cajun blackening spice for pork chops.

  11. Teri — May 5, 2010 @ 12:26 pm (#)

    Applewood Smoke Rub kind of sounds amazing. I would love to try that. (at home, one of my favorite seasonings is Lawry’s parsley garlic salt. it makes for amazing steaks.)

  12. Jen — May 5, 2010 @ 4:39 pm (#)

    We make a home-made spice rub with paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and whatever else is in the cabinet! But I would LOVE to try some new stuff! Happy Birthday!

  13. Betsy — May 5, 2010 @ 8:00 pm (#)

    tequila lime! For sure! Though really I’m of the opinion that the more flavor the better. haha I’m not too picky!

  14. Liisa — May 5, 2010 @ 10:21 pm (#)

    My Planter’s favorite has long been the blackening spice… makes all my fajitas incredible! Happy Birthday, my friend!

  15. Lili — May 5, 2010 @ 10:40 pm (#)

    Happy birthday!

    Tequila Lime and Jamaican Jerk both sound amazing.

  16. ATL Cook — May 5, 2010 @ 11:18 pm (#)

    I sure would enjoy using all those rubs here in ATL where we know how to grill. I’d love that Birthday Giveaway collection.

  17. Nancy — May 6, 2010 @ 9:29 am (#)

    Is it boring that my favorite seasoning is plain old basil? Fresh from the garden…yummy! Happy Birthday!

  18. nunu — May 6, 2010 @ 10:08 am (#)

    I would like to try Applewood Smoke Rub…Sounds delish!!! Happy Belated Birthday!! What a fun way to celebrate…

  19. Lauren Davis — May 6, 2010 @ 1:53 pm (#)

    Happy belated birthday!!
    I think the Tequila lime seasoning sounds fantastic.
    I love cooking fish and that sounds like it would taste great on it!

  20. Cherie — May 6, 2010 @ 2:02 pm (#)

    My favorite seasoning is garlic pepper!

  21. mandy g. — May 6, 2010 @ 3:08 pm (#)

    BBQ Spice! MMMMMMM!!!

  22. Emily — May 6, 2010 @ 6:53 pm (#)

    Happy Birthday!
    I love a rub mixture of onion and garlic powder, cumin, ground coriander, salt, pepper and some ancho chili powder–delicious! The Jamaican Jerk Seasoning sounds very tempting though. :)

  23. Ashley — May 6, 2010 @ 11:24 pm (#)

    I adore Lawry’s seasoned salt, no matter what anyone says about it :). (But really, I’m the kinda girl who loves sour cream on anything.)
