Papa Jack's new BBQ rub is appropriately named "Sweet Heat". Jack developed his Sweet Heat rub for use on every type of grilled or smoked meat. This rub can be used in tandem with his Sweet Heat Marinade or own its own.
Sweet Heat Rub has a paprika and salt base. Its flavor is highlighted by brown sugar, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. The cinnamon provides a great unique flavor and is the standout ingredient in its aroma. Papa Jack's blend of spices is all natural and contains no MSG.
I used Sweet Heat rub on chicken wings and on slow smoked baby back ribs. The rub was excellent on the wings. The cinnamon, brown sugar combination really enhanced the flavor of the wings. The rub was good on the ribs as well, but the salt content was a little high. The long, slow cook time, combined with the relatively high salt content of the rub made the ribs a bit too salty.
Papa Jack's Sweet Heat rub is a high quality, all natural rub. I would advise using it in moderation for BBQ with long cook times because of the relatively high salt content, but don't let that scare you away from using it altogether. It's also excellent on grilled and baked meats and vegetables.
