Default BNZA Gator - Sugar Cane Molasses, Mango, Habanero marinade

Here is the marinade and dipping sauce I used for the smoked Alligator shish kabobs at BNZA

Marinade recipe below is enough for 2 lbs. of meat. I suggest using 1/2 the mixture below as a marinade with meat in zip lok bags. The other 1/2 can be used to glaze the meat on the BBQ pit, or drizzle on top of meat once taken off pit.


Mix all ingredients below and store leftovers in container , refrigerate for future use. You can also heat marinade in pan on stove top to thicken for other dishes. Excellent marinade for chicken, pork, beef, or any other ideas in the kitchen or backyard grill.


Marinade ingredients :

1/2 cup Sugar Cane Molasses or Steen's Syrup

1/2 cup Mango juice or fresh Orange - Mango juice

1 ounce fresh squeezed Lime juice

2 ounces Apple Cider Vinegar

4 Tablespoons Creole Mustard

1 ounce Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing

1/2 cup Ketchup

3 small Garlic cloves, finely minced

1 Habanero chile, seeded and minced ( or 1 Jalapeno pepper finely minced )

1/2 teaspoon Orange zest

1 sprig fresh Rosemary finely chopped

1/8 teaspoon of Allspice





kudos to Cody for the pic, Stevenbmckee for the gator, Dr D for his pit and grilling skills, and Hoop for being the WatchDog making sure no one ate to much ... luv ya Hoop.

Blake I dont see any BLAZE on that list

The Gator was outstanding I loved this Marinade. Have you thought about throwing some Teriyaki sauce into this mix.

Either way I can still taste that gator... Now I just need to place a order for some

Awesome stuff, Blake. I'm gonna cube up a small pig and give it a shot. I'm thinking about skewering it like the gator at nanza too.

another bump since I recv'd a few emails inquiring about the marinade recipe


this marinade can be stored in a container and refrigerated for future use.

don't be afraid to double or triple up on the recipe to make extra as it's that good

i cut the gator meat into bite size peices (i.e. - chicken nugget size)

cook until the meat begins to char or burn (see pic above) .... taste test a few pcs.

because the pcs. are roughly 1" x 1" squares, it won't take long to cook ... maybe 5 min each side , then turn over for another 5 minutes

perhaps DrD will chime in on temp and cooking time , pretty sure they were also smoked
