    Since I found Charcrust over 4 years ago, I have not prepared a steak any other way. No more marinades or any other seasonings, just original hickory Charcrust. I dont even use A-1 anymore.

      Thank you, Sam. The Original Char Crust on steaks was the secret to our family’s steakhouse. Yum!

      Original Hickory Grilled. Although it has long been a favorite rub for steaks, Original Hickory Grilled really brings out the “meatiness” of tuna and swordfish. Try dredging the fish in Char Crust, then heat 2 Tablespoons of oil in a pan to medium high. Sear all sides of the fish until a nice crust forms, then continue cooking on medium heat to your desired doneness. Happy eating!

    I found this here in South Jersey, at least 12 years ago. Of course, when it was gone, I had to find [more of] it!

    All the flavors work nicely on veggies, sprinkled — not coated — after tossing in a good oil. For lighter fish, I use the sprinkle method and maybe lighten it with some lemon zest or a squirt of lemon after cooking.

    Original Hickory Grilled is my go-to. I order more of this and the Hickory & Molasses because I can always add some to another flavor that I may not have enough of.

    As others have said: guests who’ve had ‘my chicken’ think I’m amazing. I usually come clean and show them the box [of Char Crust]. If they’re worthy, and I have a supply, I may even push a box on them – get ’em hooked… they’ll be back for more!
