Trader Joe’s BBQ Rub and Seasoning with Coffee and Garlic

My two year daughter’s favorite hobby is grocery shopping. After a trip to Trader Joe’s with her mother she came back with some BBQ Rub and Seasoning with Coffee and Garlic. How thoughtful! I thought the best way to try this out was with some pork chops, so I sent my daughter (and my wife) out to Central Market. They came back with some beautiful looking berkshire porterhouse pork chops. I had read the longer this rub was on the pork the better so I rubbed them down at lunch in anticipation of a tasty dinner. »

Grilled Shishito Peppers with Dried Chorizo

Here are the ingredients: And the skewered results waiting for the grill: »

Pork Chops

I have been shooting for at least two posts a month, but time ran away from me in February. Luckly, that didn’t stop me from BBQing so I have a lot of posts coming!! Jen’s mother paid us a visit at the end of January to see her granddaughter. I wanted to fix her something special, but I didn’t have the time to do something low and slow. My first thought was a nice juicy steak, but I wanted to do something a little different. »

Rub Some Butt Ribs

I found some Carolina style Rub Some Butt rub in my stocking this year. Having tried and loved a South Carolina style mustard sauce on with pulled pork, I immediately got excited. The first time I used it was on some chicken breasts. It definitely lived up to the busting with mustard and vinegar tag line on the label. I couldn’t wait to use it again on some ribs. And I knew just the occasion, the last day of vacation. »
