The Tillett Brothers’ BBQ announces coming soon three special RUBs and spice mixes. We selected three of our favorite blends among our friends and family and are making them available to our BBQ fans.
Steves Famous Dry Rub
Steve has been perfecting this mix in his own back yard for many years. It has it’s own fan base! This Dry Rub is Fantastic on CHICKEN its our chicken go-to spice. Both on the BBQ and in the kitchen.
Steve’s also tastes great on BEEF and LAMB! It’s amazingly universal. For example you can increase the amount of rub to give your chicken more kick. Think spicy hot wings. I have a mason jar of this recipe mixed up and I use it as a base and add spices to customize the flavor.
Big Reds Steak Salts
Our father Ron Tillett a charming man known to many as Big Red because of his bigger than life personality, dashing good looks and curly red hair. Ron was a butcher & meat cutter with a passion for cooking it. Big Red worked in every aspect of the meat business and he retired working for Fred Meyer. One of the things he enjoyed was sharing his recipes with the customers. He believed the cut of meat is important for both flavor and tenderness. Then in order to bring out its natural flavors you need to season it correctly. Of course the final step was cooking it. Ron was a fan of smoking meats he built smokers for his meat shop and mad lots of beacon, sausages and jerky.
This mix originates from our families own tradition of cooking steak. Ron’s Favorite cut of meat was the T-Bone. The T-Bone has the New York Steak on one side and the tenderloin also known as filet mignon on the other. This steak to me it a perfectly balanced steak. Bone in and leave some fat on the edge of the steak for the full flavor. Each side has its own distinct flavor and texture.
Big Reds Mix is a traditional blend with a balance of Salts and crushed peppercorns at the center. On the side we have a few hand selected spices designed to bring out the full flavor of the meat. It’s well balanced and brings out the natural flavor of the meat.
Uncle Oscars Fish Fix’ns
My grandpa Oscar was a Swedish immigrant who loved to fish, He fished for all kinds of fish and he loved to eat them. Yes Lutefisk too, but this another story. I have created this blend based on a recipes handed down from grandpa Oscar and the flavors he enjoyed. I also added a few tweaks from my life time of fishing and cooking fish I have caught through out the Pacific North West.
