Here’s the Rub
If you’re into the grilling culture, you’re already aware that there are literally hundreds of Rubs available. So why is Bark’n Pig Smokehouse BBQ Pork Rub so awesome? Well for starters, it’s made here in the 320. They make Bark’n Pig Pork Rub in Glenwood and it’s available at The Smokestack in Alexandria. If you’d like to try it before you buy it, follow the Bark’n Pig on Facebook to see where their BBQ Food Truck will be set up next. You can find their Facebook Page HERE. You’ll be doing yourself a favor if you track them down.
As for what it tastes like, Bark’n Pig Pork Rub offers a traditional BBQ flavor. You can use this rub up to 24 hours prior to cooking. They’re not going for something weird or offbeat. This is their competition blend that’s sweet and hot and it’ll be a winner at your house just like it was for them. It’s a solid BBQ Rub that flat out works.
If you stop into The Smokestack in Alexandria, your in for a treat. There’s a nice selection of Grills, Smokers, and accessories, but the highlight of the trip are the rubs and sauces.
You’ll find a large number that are made in Minnesota, and an even larger selection of items that fit any taste. From fruity to wildly hot, smokey to offbeat and funky. You’ll find a rub, sauce or marinade that will make your weekend BBQ taste like the adventure it’s meant to be.
If you’re not sure where to start, then start with a Saturday. The Smokestack has Sample Saturdays every week, year round from 11a-3p. It’s a great time to try a variety of different spices and sauces before you buy. If you’re really into grilling culture but need to up your game, the Smokestack offer classes. You’ll need to contact the manager Shaney to see when the next class takes place.
