Custom blends

Postby Kalrog » Wed Jan 23, 2008 5:32 pm

Has anyone ever used Texas Spice products or services before? I just found their website and they are very local to me. I don't have enough of an idea on BBQ rubs yet, but I sure could go for a less salty version of Tony's seasoning. These guys will do custom blends as well.

Yes, I have bought stuff from Texas Spice Co. They used to have a booth over at the Hwy. 290 Flea Market. Was satisfied with the items I bought from them.

These guys will always be tops in my book. They supplied a big box of rub for us when we did BBQ For The Troops last year at Ft. Hood. They get 2 thumbs up from me and everyone who went with me to Killeen last year.

I have done rubs from some of those companies you listed and they have all been good, but I was specifically not thinking of a rub at this point. Thinking of different types of seasonings (cajun / spicy right now), but my own rub might come into play at some point.

26 ounces box free flowing salt (Morton's)
1 1/2 ounce box ground black pepper
2 ounce bottle ground red pepper
1 ounce bottle pure garlic powder
1 ounce bottle chili powder
1 ounce carton MSG (accent)

:shock: OK, that's 52 parts salt to 11 parts "other"! No wonder I can't stand most commercial seasoning blends.

Thank you James, that is exactly what I meant. Great starting point. Now I might go for cutting the salt in half (or more) and use a sea salt instead and maybe dropping the MSG. Maybe add some white pepper as well.
