Burnt Sacrifice Memphis Rub highlights the special flavors from pork, no matter how you choose to prepare it. It also works great on white meats like chicken.
Imagine diving into wonderful pulled pork and smelling the lemony cumin, smoky chili powder, and the highlights of ginger and spices for complexity and flavor. You enjoy the melt in your mouth pork mixed with sauce and vinegar or put it piled high on a 'sammich' with coleslaw and pickles. Now you are experiencing the wonders of Memphis BBQ.
Memphis is all about pork. Big roasts for pulled and chopped pork, and this is the rub I made for your pork roast, butt, or even chops and ribs. And there’s no smoke in this rub so you can put it in a smoker and it won’t be over smoked. But there’s more... it tastes really fantastic on chicken, especially dark meat, but really the entire chicken soaks up the flavor. Trust me, try it once, and your mouth will water when you start to think about making it again!
Versatile: This rub is so versatile you could almost call it a southern curry. I have even stirred it in with deviled eggs, and used it to make the Mexican soup posole.
Every BBQ competitor and every BBQ restaurant start with a rub. The foundation of all great BBQ or grilling begins with your rub. The basic spices of the rub will enhance the flavor of whatever you are cooking, and also modify the flavor of the sauce. This gives you the effect of a different sauce for each rub you use. Try one of our fantastic Burnt Sacrifice competition-class sauces, available in several spice levels, to finish with our rubs or use as a dipping sauce. Our rubs are specifically designed to be bold enough to stand up on their own so you can enjoy the flavor of the meat, but will also work well to enhance the BBQ sauce.
Best on: Made for pork and chicken, but good on vegetables. Good on tender fish like trout or bass (light application).
