Spice Up Your BBQ With Savory Spice Shop

savory 3We usually let others do the cooking, but summer is barbecue season, so we were ready to fire up the grill when Savory Spice Shop in Newport Beach gave us some samples of their spices and rubs to try. We bought steaks, lamb chops, chicken, and hamburger, and applied the spices and rubs to see which ones we liked best.

As usual, Catherine and I both liked several of the spices, and differed on other ones.

We both enjoyed the Platte River Rib Rub, which contains Spanish paprika, salt, brown sugar, black pepper, medium chili powder, roasted garlic, toasted onion, nutmeg and hickorysavory 4 smoke flavoring. We thought the taste was Southern BBQ style with a touch of spice.

We also liked the Long’s Peak Pork Chop Spice, which is a blend of salt, garlic, onion, black pepper, shallot, ginger, hickory smoked salt, hickory smoked flavoring, regular mustard powder and crushed brown mustard.

My favorite was the Roman Pepper Steak Seasoning– sea salt, black pepper, garlic, white pepper, crushed red pepper, lemon peel, rosemary, basil, citric acid and lemon thyme.

savory 1We like the fact that Savory Spice Shop has more than 400 spice blends to choose from, and they can custom-blend to suit any taste bud.

Individual spice blends vary in price; boxed sets generally range from $23 to $25. Savory Spice Shop can ship anywhere.
