Spice Rubs
Easy - Sweet and Smoky BBQ Pulled Pork with Smoky BBQ Rub

2lb Pork
3 tbsp of Smoky BBQ Rub
1 tbsp of brown sugar
2-3 tbsp Olive Oil

We recommend Bone Suckin Sauce ( warm slightly ) to add before serving
Brush olive oil onto pork. Combine dry ingredients and rub into pork. Place into a re-sealable bag, covered glass dish or pan and marinate overnight in refrigerator. Heat grill to 225 degees and place a small aluminum pan the grill ( flame side ) and fill it halfway with water to keep pork moist. Brush the grill grates with oil. Place the pork over indirect heat. Grill for 2 - 2/12 hours. Center should be about 170 degrees. Let pork stand for about ten minutes after you remove it from the grill. Shred the pork into pieces with two forks and serve with sauce.
char crust
Classic Use - Grilling or Broiling

1. Dredge (completely cover all sides) any meat of fish with Char Crust dry rub seasoning. Be generous and pat or rub to coat evenly all over.
2. For best results with low-fat meats or fish, we suggest that you drizzle or spritz a little oil or non-stick oil spray on the surface of the already-seasoned protein. This provides a protective buffer on the surface of the spices and creates a sizzling Char Crust. If using a well-marbled cut of beef, or cooking on a George Foreman style grill, you can skip this step.
3. Using a preheated broiler (top rack) or very hot grill, sear both sides of the protein. Then cook to desired preference. For juiciest results, do not pierce meat or press down hard on it.

Classic Use - Roasting

1. Preheat oven to highest temperature (500 degrees or higher is best).
2. Follow Steps 1 and 2 from Grilling and Broiling above.
3. Place roast in roasting pan that allows some space all around the roast. Place into oven and allow to cook for 15 minutes. Then turn temperature down to your desired roasting temperature (350 degrees is a common choice). Continue cooking until desired temperature is reached.

Note: Char Crust dry rub seasoning does not change your normal cooking times, so if you are using a favorite recipe and adding Char Crust dry rub to it, simply follow your recipe.

Sprinkle Use - Broil, bake, grill or saute

Works eSpecially well for vegetables!
1. Drizzle clean vegetables with oil, then toss well to coat.
2. Sprinkle to taste with Char Crust dry rub seasoning, then toss again
3. Broil, bake, grill, or saute as usual.
4. Serve to rave reviews!
Note: You can also sprinkle Char Crust on fresh steamed veggies. After cooking, toss veggies with a little butter or oil, then sprinkle with Char Crust dry rub to taste, and toss again..
