Living Local Expo is where we found the Savory Spice Shop brand, a New Jersey spice manufacturer. Offering 140 unique hand-blended spices. GFNJ decided on their Red Rocks Hickory Smoke Seasoning. Where we immediately tried in the Good Food New Jersey kitchen.
We found the aroma intoxicating and dreamed of summer barbecues but we settled for the oven. We used the Red Rocks Hickory Smoke two ways. First as a rub we generously applied to some pork ribs. The second way as suggested on label of jar, mixing with some ketchup, 1/2 tbsp to 1 cup ketchup. Overall a fantastic spice, well blended paprika, garlic and black pepper, balanced out the “smoke flavor”.
On our two dishes, both turned out great, we used more than recommended with ketchup (and were completely happy) so taste before you baste. However you decide you won’t be disappointed. Keep it local New Jersey! Savory Spice Shop
