Okay, instead of going down to the grocery store which is 10 miles away from my house, does anyone have any really good BBQ marinate recipe's to make something simular to a Mesquite/Teriyaki mix?
There are a million BBQ sauce recipes pick one you have the ingredients for.
You won't get the benefits of mesquite in a marinade or sauce without having liquid mesquite smoke or the real thing on hand. I don't think I've ever heard of liquid mesquite smoke, either, tho it's possible some specialty store carries it somewhere.
Sounds like you're looking for a Southwest twist on an Asian classic, tho, and you're in luck because there is some crossover. You can try Tex-Mexing up some teriyaki marinade by adding fresh lime juice, ground cumin, sage and chile pods or crushed red pepper flakes. This works great on beef and pork, tho it can be a bit too muscular for chicken, depending on your preparation.
Give the meat at least an hour in the marinade, turning once. For even cooking throughout, let the meat sit at room temp for at least an hour before putting it on the grill. You can baste the meat with the marinade during cooking, but don't ever reuse marinade or put on cooked meat, as it contains the juices of raw meat and can cause food poisoning.
For the smoke effect, of course you'll grill the meat over real lump hardwood charcoal, right? No? Gas grill? Well, you can get that wonderful smoke effect by soaking wood chunks in water for an hour before grilling, then wrapping them loosely in foil. Puncture the foil with tiny holes to allow smoke & steam to escape and place the packet close to one of the grill's gas elements. The fire will cause the wet wood to smoulder, creating smoke which will lend a nice flavor to your food. Most hardware stores carry lump hickory and mesquite for just this purpose. Once you get a handle on using real wood smoke in your grilling/barbecuing, you'll never want to use liquid smoke again!
Quick teriaki-soy sauce, some water or the soy sauce may make it too salty, brown sugar, finely grated/chopped garlic and ginger ( or powdered will do if that's what you have), pepper and a shot of cheap red wine or you can use anykind of juice in it. You need the shot of wine or juice as that is what will tenderize your meat.
Have a nice day!

Yes, but sometimes the recipe is going to make you go to the store anyway. Many of the recipes have minced ginger for example. Do you have any minced ginger around?
that mix doesnt sound appealing to me. but you still need to have the ingredients on hand, and sooner or later you gotta go to town anyhow,,,
brown sugar, ketchup, salt and pepper, liquid smoke,, and worcestershire sauce, some lemon juice, some hot peppers,, should about do it, mix in to taste,,dried onions, garlic etc
sounds like a fun experiment for the tongue, just go for it,
Italian dressing can sometimes do in a pinch.
