See what our customers have to say:

“Thanks for your help, and I just have to say that I was overjoyed to find your product available online…the Ginger Teriyaki…is the best meat seasoning I’ve ever had. When we cook with it, the house smells amazing (and our cats go absolutely nuts). The first bite is like a meatgasm! Thank you!” – Lauren B., Indianapolis, IN “We can’t live through a summer without your rubs. Since I live in the Pacific Northwest (but was born in Chicago) all my friends just think I am this incredible chef. Even my wife can’t resist the steaks. Can’t wait to try the new All American Barbecue! Thank you, thank you, thank you. [Note from Char Crust: See Todd’s other comment on our How To Use page.]” – Todd W., Eugene, OR “Hello Char Crust folks! I moved from Chicago to the Nashville Tennessee area. It dawned on me after awhile that they didn’t carry your Char Crust products in the stores near me, and I missed it! Luckily for me, the Internet helped me find you. Everyone who tries it, loves it! I don’t have a steak without it. You still have a loyal customer in me! All the best!” – Spike O’Dell, Morning Show Host (retired), WGN Radio Chicago, now living in Dixieland

My favorite two flavors are Roasted Garlic Peppercorn and Smoky Spicy Southwest.” – Mary Lee W., Vancouver, BC, Canada “I shopped at The Fresh Market in Greensboro, NC, and found your great All American Barbecue dry rub seasoning in the spice aisle. I was thrilled! I’m so happy to have found Fresh Market and your product.” – Dotty M., Greensboro, NC
