Grilling with Spice Rubs - Giveaway

Spice Rubs


When I start preparing to grill dinner it seems I always go right for the grill sauces and marinades.  It is so easy to marinate a piece of meat and the flavor you get from it is pretty unbeatable...so I thought.

The other night, I got the chance to try out one of our new spice rubs.  Carolina style barbecue holds a special place in my heart.  It reminds me of summer vacations to visit my grandparents in North Carolina, sitting on the picnic tables with a Carolina-style pulled pork sandwich and a bag of hush puppies.  When I first saw we were introducing a Carolina's Rub I knew I needed to try it as soon as possible; pork, chicken?  The options seem endless!

Had I not had the guidance from my chef husband, I might have just dunked the chicken breasts into the rub and threw them on the grill.  I was quickly informed that we needed to marinate the chicken breast just like I would with a grill sauce to get a more intense flavor.   After a few minutes on a charcoal grill I got the flavor I was looking for.  I may have been converted to using spice rubs all the time now and I can't wait to try the other 7 flavors!

Since it's summer time and everyone has the grills lit up, we want to share a few of our new spice rubs with one of our blog readers!

  10. It's got to be charcoal...unless it's winter and I don't want to stand outside in the Illinois Tundra waiting for the charcoal chimney!

  11. propane. so much easier. turn it on - turn it off. No hot coals to worry about. But I have to admit, there is something about charcoal and reminiscing about childhood....
