Our Kansas City Original BBQ Rub is hand blended from paprika, garlic, salt, turbinado sugar, coriander, cumin, mustard, black pepper, celery, thyme, sage, clove, and oregano.
We recommend that you use 2 tablespoons of rub plus 1 teaspoon Grovestone Ultra Premium Olive Oil per pound of meat (you can add more if you prefer). Add to the meat and rub it in thoroughly with your hands. Be sure to coat both sides evenly. Once this is done place the meat in a zip lock bag and then place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. For best results refrigerate for 24 hours and we have even heard of some competitive BBQ teams giving their meat up to 48 hours.
To make a well balanced sauce add 1 cup of tomato sauce, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1/2 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of spice rub to a medium sauce pan. Simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. You can adjust the spice blend to suite your tastes.
