12 Bones Brown Sugar Rib Rub
This sweet, brown sugary dry rub is what coats our Brown Sugar ribs… and it melts as they’re cooked, which forms a nice crust. They’re great dry, but the 12 Bones Blue “Q” or Tomato “Q” sauces would work just fine if you want to add a little extra something. By the time these get to the table, they’ll be pretty gooey. If you’re a spice fan, try a few shakes of hot sauce.
12 Bones Butt Rub
This is what we use on our big Boston butts before smoking…which eventually become pulled pork. You can do the same, or you can use it on a regular, oven-roasted pork loin. This has a rather earthy flavor, which separates it from many store-bought rubs you’ll find. It may seem full flavored at first glance, since pork has a neutral flavor, but the fat can easily drown out spices if you go too light.
12 Bones All-Purpose Rub
This dry rub is what we use to rub our chickens as well as our smoked beef brisket. In years past, we’ve also used it to season some of our specials such as our smoked shrimp and many other meats. That’s what makes it such a great all-purpose rub…something that can be used in a variety of applications.
12 Bones Bacon Sugar
This delicious spice has a bit of a kick, and it's what we coat our own bacon strips with that makes it OH SO DELICIOUS! It's ideal for thick cut, lean bacon. You just sprinkle this magin over your bacon liberaly, bake in the oven, and curse the gods for every introducing you to such a thing (because you'll never be able to enjoy regular bacon without it again).
