Steven and his wife Natalie met at a Labor Day barbecue party where the featured piece of meat was a Texas style brisket. They ended up sitting next to each other, devouring the brisket and talking, time that led to the couple falling in love. They married on anotherLabor Day in Tecolutla, Mexico, a place they fell in love with during a Spice House mission to find high quality vanilla beans. They gave out little jars of this blend at their wedding party in Chicago, and it has become a staple for amazing brisket. It’s also fantastic sprinkled on pork chops, chicken, and even hamburgers.
