These USDA Organic Spices are blended to capture the traditional Southern North Carolina BBQ flavor that is known to sweet, salty, and slightly spicy hot. Three ounces is just enough for several racks of ribs or a 7 pound Boston Butt. Rub it on anything that you want to eat with your fingers just so you have something to lick clean when you are done. Perfect for ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and pork tenderloin. Some folks swear by saucing, but with this rub you won't need any sauce. When smoking Flavor Seed prefers to use apple, hickory, or pecan (preferred) chips. If you are cooking for the masses (or a whole pig) consider buying a one pound bag.
