Two or three weeks ago I got a package in the mail from one of my regular readers, and an email asking if I’d give his dry rub a try and give him my honest opinion.
Well, I would’ve loved to that very same day if the weather had cooperated but as it was I had to wait until it wasn’t raining or ass-biting cold.
A few days ago I had my chance so I went to the store and bought a nice pork loin, rubbed it down and fired up the smoker.
I threw on some hickory chips (I seem to have plenty of those) and slow cooked that nice piece of meat at just under 200 degrees until it was done.
Before I go any further I want to say that I’m not big on rubs or sauces or anything else on my meat. It seems like 90% of that stuff does nothing more than cover up the taste of the meat. But hey! I told the man I’d give it a shot.
Fucking delicious, man. I may have to rethink my position on rubs. It gave the meat a sweet flavor that you could taste momentarily when you take a bite and then the natural flavors kicked in, very much drawn out by the other spices. It caramelized nicely without scorching and sealed in the juices, giving me a very moist and tasty piece of meat.
But if I thought it was that good hot, you should’ve seen my expression when I went to the refrigerator later and made myself a nice pork sandwich. Oh dear God, it was outrageously good.
I can go on and on about how great the rub is but it’s one of those things that has to be experienced to be believed.
You can order it through his Facebook page or through his newly constructed website.
The price is 12 bucks a bottle (buy 3 and get free shipping or another bottle) and it’s worth every penny of it.
