The Grilling Gourmet's famous Dry Rubs

“My rubs have all sold out. I will be preparing a new batch in the next few weeks… get ready!”

– Steph The Grilling Gourmet

These blends are low in sodium, as salt is not the first ingredient on the ingredient list as most other blends tend to be.  They are all natural, blended in small batches to assure the freshest product possible.  They are made with all natural ingredients and are multipurpose in nature.  They can be rubbed onto the surface of meats or added to ground meats for a truly dynamic flavour.

Simply apply a small amount (2-3 tsp. per pound) to your meat, fish or vegetables and proceed to grill, fry or oven roast.  It is best if you let your meat marinate a few hours in the refrigerator, or better left overnight to let all the flavours of the dry rub penetrate the meat fully.


Cajun Rub

Blended with hot peppers, garlic and other ingredients, this is the spiciest one of all. Designed for those who like it hot, this rub will satisfy the need for heat but will deliver a dynamic flavor not usually found in very spicy rubs. This rub is suitable for all meats, fish, soups and gumbos.

Sweet Red Rub

The original rub that started it all. The most versatile rub with a complex taste, a bold and distinctive sweet flavor to start and ending with a touch of heat. Made with paprika and Demerara sugar as its main ingredients. It is a multipurpose rub good for all meats.

Firelick Rub

This is the perfect blend for the garlic and chili lover out there who doesn’t want a whole lot of salt thrown into the mix!
This blend lends itself well to all meats, fish, vegetables, soups and stews.

Meditalian Rub

This rub is reminiscent of Italian herbs with distinctive Mediterranean undertones. This light herbal rub adds no heat and is pleasing to all palates. It can also be added to soups for a lovely flavour. This rub is best on chicken, fish and vegetables.
