BBQ Spices: The Baron's List
A while back, The Hampton Smoker and I brought Paul Kirk, The Baron of BBQ, to NYC to teach his School of Pitmasters to us crazy Yankees.
The Baron taught us his secrets for developing our own rubs, or what he calls a flavorprint. Paul brought a treasure trove of spices for the class to use and Matt and I dove right in. With the Baron's help we created a new rub for use on pork and ribs. I can't tell you what's in it, but I can tell you that after some initial skepticism, we impressed the good Baron.
