Smoky Molasses Rub (ounce)
Bourbon Molasses Rub is destined to become one of our more popular grilled chicken seasonings. Now while it was developed with chicken in mind it’ll also work well on smoked or roasted pork and grilled fish. Great smoker and grill rubs tend to be built on the "holy trinity" foundation of sugar, salt and paprika. This rub has all three but with several unexpected twists. Hand blended from granulated molasses, demerara sugar, orange, smoked Bourbon Barrel salt, garlic, onion, chipotle, paprika and red bell pepper.
Now certainly some prefer to have their grilled chicken marinated and others slathered in a sauce. But if you've ever had grilled or smoked chicken created by a serious pit master it’s a pretty safe bet that a dry rub was the bedrock of his (or her) flavor. Dry rubs give meat (especially chicken and pork) an unforgettable character. If you aren't familiar with a grilling or smoking dry rub in addition to the "holy trinity" it's a seasoning blend of dry spices and often herbs. The seasoning is shaken onto the meat and then patted in evenly (typically referred to as "rubbed") to all sides before cooking.
