Slightly sweet but you will also certainly pick up on a delightful balance of heat thanks to the chipotle elements as well as the black pepper in this blend. The heat is not overpowering, instead it works alongside the sweetness and adds to the smoky qualities of this blend.


Hand blended from granulated honey, smoked apple wood sea salt, paprika, garlic, onion, chipotle powder, black pepper and chipotle flakes.

How to Use

This blend is excellent on the grill, particularly on pork, beef, and chicken. Use it in the slow cooker on pulled pork recipes, throw some on your baked ribs, or add it to burger meat before cooking. It's also good on vegetables! We love this applewood chipotle rub on sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, or on grilled asparagus. Use it on rice or on strongly flavored vegetables like brussels sprouts. As a rule of thumb, you should use about 1 tablespoon of dry rub per pound of chicken or pork. For fish, about ½ that amount would be enough to start out with. Rubs are patted into the meat on all sides before cooking begins, making a crust of tasty flavor on the meat.
