Dry Creek Sweet Heat Dry Rub

Dry Creek Sweet Heat Dry Rub

For the 2021 State Fair, and the promotional launch of Dry Creek BBQ Pellets, we were asked to put together a signature dry rub that could be used to bring out the richness of each of our BBQ Pellet's Flavors. After months of testing, meet Dry Creek, Sweet Heat. A perfect combination of sweet and smoky, with a kick.  Our apple pellets grab onto the crisp apple intensity, and pair it with a chipotle kick, while our sweet hickory brings out the garlic and maple sugar notes. Finally our Northern Hardwoods come alive on your dish with a mouth-watering smoky-spice that will leave you wanting more.
