I’m so glad to hear that Salsa Express is starting to carry the products from BBQ’N FOOLS. They have got an excellent range of sauces and rubs. I’m not the only one that thinks so, out of 7 food products they make, they have collected 17 major food awards – including at least 3 Scovies and 8 Fiery Food Challenge awards. They’re not all aimed at the chilehead, but every one of them is an excellent product for the grill. Tammy and I also like that they donate 4% of all their profits to breast cancer research.
Actually my favorite product of theirs is, unfortunately one Salsa Express isn’t carrying – yet. Their Signature Montreal BBQ Rub. Oh, man is that stuff good! So far I have only found one place I don’t use it… desserts. It has become a staple table spice in this house, for the most part replacing salt and pepper altogether. I use it on sandwiches, salads, steamed veggies, dips, beef, pork, chicken, fish, potatoes, you name it.
We use it as a rub and in marinades before cooking, in addition to salt when baking potatoes, and we keep it on the table to add after cooking. It has a wonderful flavor, which really accents whatever it is put on, instead of overpowering or fightin it. A mix of garlic, onion, pepper, corriander, mustard seed and chili, it is Zesty but still mild enough that Tammy uses it almost as much as I do. I’m working hard to get Salsa Express to carry it, but in the mean time I think I will order at least a four pack direct from the fools.
