Honey Chipotle Rub
Our Honey Chipotle Rub tastes like a backyard barbecue that’s just waiting to happen. This is a simple rub, made from a blend of chipotle powder, granulated honey, salt, and the fragrant herbs of the Mediterranean, but it packs a wallop. Sweetly floral granulated honey interacts beautifully with the spicy smoke of fruity-hot chipotle powder, creating a one-two punch of sweet heat. The flavors are balanced by savory onion, piney rosemary and earthy sage, sweet and peppery basil and the gently herbaceous marjoram. It’s pulled together into one package by just enough salt to make all the flavors pop. Our Honey Chipotle Rub is blended by hand in our facility in small batches, so we can maintain the standards of freshness we strive to provide for our customers.
Honey Chipotle Rub is one of the first rubs we developed for our business. During our first year of operation, we primarily sold raw ingredients—herbs, spices, and chiles, along with a few pre-mixed blends. Some of our earliest customers were competition barbecue pit crews, so we researched what went into their seasoning blends so we could serve them better. This introduced us to the idea of “sweet heat”, and we were smitten. We chose granulated honey for the “sweet”, because it’s easy to use and has a slightly more complex flavor than sugar, and chipotle for the “heat”, because it’s hot enough to announce its presence but isn’t overly aggressive, and brings tremendous flavor.
