Our “Competition – All Purpose Pork Rub” was originally created for our pork ribs or brisket specials that were occasionally served at our restaurants. “Specials” in the restaurant world are typically experimental dishes. My grandfather was one of the greatest chefs that I have ever known. His specialty was Spanish and Caribbean cuisine. He was the head chef for 30 years at the famous Columbia Restaurant. When he opened his own restaurant, he wanted to not only serve high end Spanish and Caribbean cuisine but also wanted to incorporate some American dishes as well. Which led us to the develop of our Bar B Que Specials. And good Bar B Que starts with a good foundation. I was assigned the task of researching and coming up with the rub for our Bar B Que. Although I was frustrated at first, I later realized why I was assigned this task as all children do once we get older. After a smile and an “es Bueno” (my grandfather’s approval) our pork ribs and brisket became a hit at our restaurant (they were no longer a special but an everyday part of our menu).
We had a discussion one afternoon during lunch with some pit-masters that were looking for us to develop a universal pork rub that they could use during their Bar B Que Competitions. This took some research and we had an advantage due to one of the biggest national Bar B Que competitions was held in our hometown every year called Ribfest. After a lot of testing and revamping we settled on the finished product and we were ecstatic to here that our rub was helping the pit masters in winning local and national events. The news spread quickly, and our Bar B Que pork rub became the base rub of choice for competition pit masters. Many pit masters said they just used our rub as a single layer just as we did when we cooked at home and on camping trips.
After several requests from many of our friends we have finally made this rub available for everyone to enjoy. Why take a chance in ruining an expensive piece of meat when you can simply go with a full proof and proven pork rub.
