Father’s Day is just around the corner. Due to 2,000 miles between us and Covid-19, hopping on a plane to see my Dad isn’t quite an option this year. So I’ve started putting together a package to ship to him next week. It will include Zero bars, Texas-style hot sauces, and a new spice rub!
Story of the Spice Rub
Just about two years ago I met my partner who is born and raised in Texas. He certainly knows his way around the grill and smoker. The first time he cooked for me he busted out his smoker and made me some smoked pork. I remember the seasoning was out of this world, smokey, flavorful with a little bit of spice. Over the past two years, we’ve talked about building a homestead and made a laundry list of things we could start making together. This all-purpose spice rub is the first on the list. It’s simple with big flavor because everything is bigger in Texas.
The all-purpose rub can be used for, well, all purposes from chicken to pork to beef. I’ve even used it on portabello mushrooms and it certainly holds up. What I will recommend pairing our Texas Style Spice Rub with is either a pig or cow towel. (Chicken will be coming soon!)
