Pork Rub for pulled pork

by Lawrence Heath June 29, 2015

Father’s Day weekend our first product, Pork Rub – a seasoning pork rub for pulled pork, took its place on the shelf of our first retail partner, Today’s Outdoor Living - a patio and grill store, in South Charlotte, owned by Ron and Carole Sackowitz. Ron-and-Carol_360x339Ron and Carole started their patio and grill store in 2010 and have built a strong following, separating themselves from the big box stores with high quality products, superior service and being a resource of sage advice to those that enjoy outdoor patio living.

After returning to Charlotte, I looked up my closest Big Green Egg dealer that listed Ron and Carole’s store. We purchased one and over the years we have found our extra larger ceramic smoker/grill, a fire of hickory coals and our Pork Rub seasoning recipe are a winning combination. Seeing our Pork Rub on the shelf with other high quality patio and grill products Father’s Day weekend at Today’s Outdoor Living store was one of the best father’s day gifts ever. It was also great fun to serve samples of fire-roasted pork BBQ, smoked with our Pork Rub, and trade BBQ tips with customers as they shopped.   demo with bannerDemo cook You can purchase our Pork Rub at: Today’s Outdoor Living 9815 Rea Road STE D Charlotte, NC 28277 OR Our Web Store. If you would like to see our Pork Rub in your favorite BBQ supply store, ask the manager to carry our Pork Rub.

Last Saturday I enjoyed grilling for one of my favorite family gatherings, a birthday party, and grilled Moonshine Brine Pork Chops by request to go with cooked vegetables and salad prepared by my wife. Give Moonshine Brine Pork Chops a test drive and you will be in for a treat. The loin cuts are where we get pork chops from the pig and the filet mignon from beef. This cut from high on the back of the pig is also the source for the phrase “living a little higher on hog” in contrast to the cheaper cuts like Boston butt, picnic ham and bacon found a little lower on the animal.

A long time friend living in Nashville  emailed me today and suggested I give people a little more, step by step, detail on just how I like to rub, smoke and sauce pork BBQ.  So, here we go!  I will go over my five to ten minute prep on the day before putting the meat on the actual smoker. Day 1 BBQ Prep 1. Simply tear open a five ounce, net weight, bag of Fire of Coals Pork Rub  and pour the contents in a large pan (or, about 1/3 of a pound bag).
