Second Half of Product Review

We are finally ready to post the review on the Simply Marvelous BBQ rub “Season All”. We have been waiting to post this because when we tested it on chicken and took our first bite we both looked at each other and said, we’ve got to try this on beef. We did just that last night. Chad stopped at the butchers on the way home from the shop and got two thick strip steaks. All I have to say is: I thought the Sweet and Spicy was going to my favorite, but the Season All was heaven off the grill. It was so tasty.

A few of the main ingredients are salt, paprika, garlic, brown sugar, and other spices. The first dry taste was very salty and peppery. The salt was a bit overwhelming, but we found this cooked off. It did offer a very nice smokiness.

We first used this rub to season a butter, soy, and chicken stock injection for our whole chicken. Then 20 minutes before cooking we rubbed the outside of it. We cooked this over some Humphrey’s lump for a few hours. The flavor was great and our guest were very satisfied.

Last nights cook was great, two strip steaks rubbed 20 minutes before cooking over some Humphrey’s all natural. They were cooked perfect to medium rare. This rub really brought the flavor of the meat out.

Based on a scale of 1-5 (5 being super sweet) We give it a 1.
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 3
Based on a scale of 1-5 (5 being super salty) we gave it a 5 dry, and 2 ½ after it was cooked
Based on a scale of 1-5 (5 being super peppery) we gave it a 4

This rub has a fine granular consistency and was very easy to squeeze through our injector.

We give this a 4star rating for chicken and a 4 ½ star rating for beef.

We are very excited because Simply Marvelous has just come out with a Cheery Rub. I can’t wait to try it! We’ll keep you posted.
