Rubs You the Right Way
If you talk to anybody who barbecues, says Robert Orth, they'll tell you the secret to it is not the sauce--it's the spice rub. And the secret to a great grilling rub is to use the highest quality hand-crafted seasonings, like the ones Robert and his mother-in-law, Autum Ellis, create.
Shortcuts are not for them. They source single-origin spices from generations-old, pesticide-free family farms around the world: France, Sri Lanka, Israel, Indonesia, Morocco, and the Caribbean. Then, working in small batches with the raw, whole spices, they make the most of each type's flavor profile by hand-toasting and grinding them. Immediately afterward, they hand-blend the spices and let their flavors marry. No fillings. No chemicals.
The regional inspirations of these lip-smacking blends are evident in their names: Cajun Blackened, Caribbean, Chipotle & Honey, and Vermont Maple. Packed in a kraft paper gift box, they make a red-hot present for anyone who loves to grill. Handmade in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
