Barbecuing is a way of life in the South, like sweet tea and church on Sundays. Boasting three generations of Southern 'que mastery, Lillie's Q is no stranger to 'cue classics like ribs, chicken, and even whole hog, so you can be sure their collection of BBQ essentials are the real deal. The bottles are impressive in and of themselves – sturdy glass and wax-dipped caps – but what’s inside is where the stuff really delivers.
This sugar-based BBQ rub is great for slow-cooked ribs and pulled pork. Featuring ingredients like chipotle, cumin, and chili powder, the rub should be applied several hours before cooking and can be mixed with apple juice to create a marinade. It's a sweet and spicy addition to your favorite flesh.
