We were contacted by Simply Marvelous BBQ Company to do a review on their rubs. They quickly sent it in a Priority Mail box all the way from CALIF. We were so excited to try this because we have heard may marvelous things about them. We've even heard of people flying to Ventura, CA just to have some of their BBQ. When the package arrived we were so surprised at the size of the bottle. A whopping 16oz. We quickly went to their website to see how much these large bottles were and they are priced at $8.99 a bottle. I couldn't believe that value.
We started with the Sweet and Spicy Rub. Some of the main ingredients are brown sugar, salt, molasses powder, dehydrated garlic. Our initial dry taste made our taste buds go wild. The sweet hit us first, then a nice little tang of cloves, and finished with a little heat. We found the burn rate to be incredibly low, even though the main ingredient is brown sugar.
We used this twice. First we started with boneless pork chops cooked on Humphrey's all natural briquettes (which most of you know burn hot). We then rubbed some spare ribs with it and cooked that over Humphrey's lump and black birch chunks and slow cooked it on Superbowl weekend. We found the flavor stayed pretty consistent from the dry taste to the cooked flavor.
Based on a scale of 1-5 (5 being super sweet) We give it a 3.
Based on a scale of 1-5 (5 being super hot) We give it a 2.
Based on a scale of 1-5 (5 being super smokey) We give it a 2.
The consistency we found to be granular. Easy to make an injection with it.
We give it a 4 1/2 star rating. Great for Chicken and especially Pork.
Do you have a product you'd like us to review. Give us a shout and let us know what it is. We will post about it on Facebook, Twitter, our website, and our blog. It great advertizing!
