Favorite Spices/Rubs

Unread postby 4thQtrGlory » Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:34 pm

My favorite part about cooking is definitely incorporating seasonings, rubs, spices, etc to turn a recipe into my own creation. I figured since a lot of us in here use stuff like this, we could share our favorites. That way we arent taking our chances buying $5+ shakers to try them without having any input. Here are some of my favorites.....

Steak rub-"Rub with Love"-----it comes in a small cylinder container and is sold at heinens near the meat counter. All-time best steak rub. It is bold, zesty, and makes the best cowboy steak around.

Pork Rub- "Mcormicks Pork Rub"---it sounds boring and generic, but its absolutely amazing on ribs.

Salt- "Fire Salt"---sold at Chili's Fire Pit in Mentor. Great heat, great flavor.

Pepper- Nando's Chickenland Peri-Peri Pepper shaker(yes i know it sounds weird)---Peri pepper is a rare pepper found in South Africa and is soooooo flavorful. Unfortunately this company does not sell the shakers anymore, but it has to be my all time favorite spice. Soup, meat, potatoes, jerky, veggies, etc....it was great with absolutely everything.


Garlic Seasoning- "Garlic Festival"---sold by Gilroy Farms in California. I stock up every year when they come to the IX center for the home and garden show. They sell Garlic Mesquite, Garlic Garni (basic), Lemon Garni, Cajun Garni (discontinued but still has a few cases left), and Garlic Ghetti (parm garlic). Excellent for making own garlic breads, seasoning pasta of any kind. Mesquite is good with jerky and steak.

Burger Rub---Weber's new line of spices are very good. Tangy BBQ, Chicago style seasoning, and N'orleans seasoning are the headliners for that collection. Great stuff, and fairly cheap.

Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Granulated garlic
Granulated onion
Kosher salt
Ground black pepper

add Cayenne as desired.

At least 4 that I've seen not even looking. The I 80 exit at Rt 46 is like Amsterdam or some stuff.

Dawg, there is this one place in A-town on Mahoning that is the ultimate in vertical integration experience for a lonely bachelor with casual morals unafraid of STD's. It has a pawn shop, a bar, and a brothel errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Asian Health Spa ; all in one run down strip mall. Pawn your stuff, get drunk, and get rubbed - all within one conveneint location. Reminds me of the strip mall with the Ambiance, wedding gown store, and maternity wear shop side-by-side-by-side in Boardman.

Yeah, I have no idea how they get away with it. It's so blatant. Not that I care one way or another.

Love the Mad Anthony line...his hot sauce & hot mustard are very good and his bbq sauce is out of this world!!!! He made us some stuffed jalapenos with his sauce in Cabo and believe me, I could have used 3 A-Holes the next day

Mikey Rocks!!!

WHere do you purchase your MA sauce?
Last time I found it I was in Cincy. I HATE CINCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's home to the Bungals, the ex-wife, and it sucks as a city. Therefore, I need to find some place other than Cincy to purchase MA's sauce.
And yes, Mikey does rock. Class act too.

I usually get everything from his website

http://www.madanthonycafe.com/macstore.html

I buy the bbq sauce in the gallon jugs and it lasts me all summer...as mom used to say, "try it, you'll like it"

Also, be careful with that private reserve sauce!!!! OUCH!!!

I'd like to nominate McCormick's Spicy Montreal Steak season for an Honorable Mention. Delicious on pork chops and steaks. A little strong for fish and chicken, unless blackened.

Just bought Old Bay's tonight (and tried it for the very first time). One word, Amazing! I had it on BBQ chicken and corn on the cobb. I can't wait to put this stuff in homemade chicken noodle soup.

+1. Oddly, it's also good on popcorn in place of just plain salt.

Try out some stuff from Penzey's Spices as well: BBQ 3000 and Northwoods Seasoning are both excellent.

I mix my own rub that I use on a bunch of stuff. Works great on brisket. Just mix up some paprika, brown sugar, chipotle powder, cracked pepper, garlic, salt, and a dash of cumin.
