American Style BBQ Sauces and Rubs are proudly made in the USA and deliver classic American flavor in each of their recipes. Each of the different sauces and seasoning rub blends were created specifically to bring out the best in either beef, chicken or pork, with complementary spices and carefully-selected ingredients to enhance each type of meat.
American Style BBQ Sauce for Beef is big and bold, like the American West. Its rich, thick texture will stick to your ribs, roasts, steaks and other cuts of meat during basting as well as dipping, and yet it's pourable enough to enjoy on hamburgers. Hickory smoke adds earthy depth for layers of flavor, while the spicy peppery kick at the finish is just enough heat to wake up your taste buds and get them ready for more. The Beef Rub from American Style is reminiscent of a gourmet steak seasoning from a fine steak house, made with smoked sea salt, garlic, a secret blend of herbs and a touch of sugar to promote caramelization without flare-ups or unpleasant burnt aftertastes.
American Style Barbecue Sauce for Pork has that distinctively southern sweetness and sass that so beautifully pairs with pork, be it ribs, chops, smoked & pulled butts or other cuts. The mellow tang comes from apple cider and vinegar, while brown sugar and tomatoes provide a pleasantly sweet counterpoint that isn't overdone as with lesser, mass-produced commercial BBQ sauces. The BBQ Pork Rub also boasts flavors of the south, but this time there's a hint of the southwest with smoky chipotle, spicy chili peppers and pungent garlic. Piquant, not hot, this is an excellent rub to use before placing ribs or pork butt on a smoker.
Finally, American Style Chicken BBQ Sauce is destined to be a family favorite. Lusciously sweet with tomatoes, brown sugar and honey, but well-balanced with savory notes from onion, mustard and vinegar, this sauce caramelizes into an irresistibly delicious glaze when you baste with it during the last 10 minutes of grilling, broiling or roasting. Kids also enjoy it as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers, nuggets and breaded tenders, or even for french fries. The BBQ Rub for Chicken is a delightfully peppery blend of dried chilies, sugar, salt and savory spices to bring out the best in dark and white meat. Fantastic as a rub before smoking chicken, it's also a great seasoning to use for baked, broiled or even fried chicken (add to your breading or season your dredging flour with it).
