Backyard grillers will be experimenting with flavor layering—high-impact combinations of rubs, marinades, glazes and more—to boost flavor before, during and after grilling. Figs are an unexpected and regionally inspired match for aromatic rosemary. This is one of the featured flavor combinations from McCormick’s Flavor Forecast: Grilling Edition.
