A recent letter

I ordered a mystery box to share with my partner on our recent kinda vacation... I love how it was wrapped simply with brown paper and tied with twine...

Bitterman's Cocoa & Spice Rub Salt No. 1

A little sweet, a little spicy, a little smoky...

Sun-evaporated sea salt infused with rich, chocolatey cocoa, earthy cumin, roasted garlic, smoked paprika, a menage a trois of chilis, plus a hint of sweet cinnamon.

This rub was made for my everything-but-the-kitchen-sink pulled pork, but it is equally delicious when used as a rub for chicken, salmon or flank steak. Or sprinkle a generous pinch of this rub into smoky baked beans with bacon and Sriracha. The choice is yours.

How to use this as a rub:

1. Use 1-2 tablespoons per pound of meat.
2. Rub generously over choice of meat.
3. Cover meat and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight.
4. Grill or roast as desired.


Ingredients: Sea salt, cocoa powder, cumin, garlic powder, smoked paprika, chipotle pepper, ancho chili, pink pepper, cinnamon.

Great stocking stuffer for the family smoker

I have got great reviews on this, but I actually bought it for a stocking stuffer for my son-in-law who grills and smokes a lot. He said it was awesome.
