Brett W. Holm of Chaska, Minnesota got sick of finding metal pellets in the birds he shot and ate. So what did he do? He invented SPICE SHOT — ammunition comprised of spices formed into pellets. (source, TTABlog). Yep, all in one BANG, you can shoot, kill, and season a bird!
Season Shot is made of tightly packed seasoning bound by a fully biodegradable food product. The seasoning is actually injected into the bird on impact seasoning the meat from the inside out. When the bird is cooked the seasoning pellets melt into the meat spreading the flavor to the entire bird. Forget worrying about shot breaking your teeth and start wondering about which flavor shot to use! (source)
It’s ammunition! It’s seasoning! It’s both!
The TTABlog explains how and why Mr. Holm’s trademark case was a dud.
