Bad Byron’s Butt Rub Barbeque Seasoning

"These days I tend to season most foods with this rub rather than salt and pepper"

Bad Byron’s Butt Rub Barbeque Seasoning (BBBRBS) is a typical US style barbecue rub that is more versatile than a pig itself.   The rub is designed to be used on meats, but is also recommended to be used on salads, eggs, fish, and vegetables.

One thing to point out, this is not a hot rub – there is almost no chilli heat in this one which is kinda useful since it allows you to add chilli in order to customise your desired heat.  The greatest ingredient in BBBRBS is salt which makes it ideal for seasoning all kind of foods, and helps to immediately bring out all the flavours contained within the rub.

The rub has a deep paprika, garlic, and chipotle chilli flavour profile, which lends itself well to rich meats such as beef and pork, however the  fine balance of onion & black pepper make this also fantastic on lighter meats.  When you taste it alone, it almost has a bacon flavour crisp (potato chip) kinda vibe.

I added some of the rub to some cold, cooked chicken drumsticks the other day, and it basically gave them one massive kick up the arse, making previously eaten chicken just taste a little bland.     On foods such as vegetables and salads, BBBRBS gives a fantastic fresh, lively flavour kick, and these days I tend to season most foods with this rub rather than salt and pepper.

My stand out experience with BBBRBS was when I made Pulled Pork (recipe and pics to come soon).  Before I’ve always made up my own spice blends for Pulled Pork, and I got to say that BBBRBS took all the guess work out and delivered me Pulled Pork that was perfectly seasoned and had great depth of flavour.

Unfortunately, BBQ season has gone over in the UK so I didn’t get to try out an barbeque specific recipes, however I had tried it on grilled pork and chicken and it’s delicious.   Can’t wait to use this next year when the sun comes out again.

If you’re looking for a rub that will give you excellent all-round barbeque flavour and seasoning, without having to worry about the heat then  Bad Byron’s Butt Rub Barbeque Seasoning is a great choice.  Recommended.

    Need to get me some of this, I always make my own bbq rubs but they are different each time and never as good as you get in commercial bbq places.
