"If we didn't have Char Crust, we'd be in trouble! We use it on everything."
- Eugenia C., Calumet City, IL
"I drive 54 miles just to get Char Crust."
- Patty P., Endicott, NY
"I love your product. My brother in law got me HOOKED on the Garlic Peppercorn. I put it on almost everything. I ran out and he couldn't find the Garlic Peppercorn, so he got me the Original Hickory Grilled and the flavor was amazing! We made our steaks with this spice, cut them into cubes, and made a stroganoff with it. My family didn't leave a morsel. Thank you for a great product. I just wish I could find it in more stores in Wisconsin."
- Leslie H., somewhere in WI

Roasted Garlic Peppercorn
"My husband loves Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Char Crust® so much, he'd roll our kids in it if I let him!" -- Nicole C., Stafford, VA

Bold, roasty and sweet, with a fun little buzz. Like a perfectly pulled espresso, this rub starts with dark, rich coffee--microground so it is smooth, never gritty--and adds molasses, cocoa, and spices for complex flavor with a hint of heat. Wakes up beef, pork, and lamb. Price: $5.49 each/4 oz.
All American Barbecue
Everything you love about barbecue is here: molasses from Memphis, tangy tomato from Kansas, mustard, pepper, and vinegar from the Carolinas; and a wisp of smoke and chipotle from Texas.

"I have a cabinet in my kitchen dedicated to just Ginger Teriyaki Char Crust®!" -- Mickie P., Chicago, IL

"I tried the Cajun Char Crust® the other day on salmon, and I think it may be my kids' new all-time favorite way to have salmon. They inhaled over 2 pounds of salmon in about 2 minutes! My husband and I practically had to fight them off with our forks to get some for ourselves! -- Cortney S.C., Chicago, IL

"My Thanksgiving turkey with Roto Roast was FABULOUS! It was the first I ever did with Char Crust®. I used the broth and drippings for the gravy. I deglazed with white wine and strained out the nasty bits. I expect rave reviews. The broth is beyond tasty - dark brown & rich with flavor. FYI - I bought my Roto Roast at Sugar Valley Meats." -- Cathy W.M., Sugarcreek, OH
