World's Fair Barbecue Sauce
very good flavor
Host of the Chicago World’s Fair 125 years ago, Hyde Park has always played an important role in Chicago’s history and place in the world. We wanted this blend to reflect the characteristics of this diverse neighborhood, while being as useful and versatile for cooking purposes as the neighborhood has been to city life. Starting with a hearty base of our best Tellicherry black pepper, Hungarian sweet paprika, and garlic, we added elegant freeze-dried shallots and sweet, lemony coriander to reflect the sophistication of a neighborhood known for world-class museums and the acclaimed University of Chicago. Crushed bird chilies provide a hint of heat and a nod to the brightly-colored Monk parakeets that have colonized Harold Washington Park. In honor of President Obama’s ties to the area, we have included African grains of paradise and Hawaiian sea salt. With a savory balance of hearty flavors, this blend is a favorite for roasted or grilled vegetables, particularly cauliflower, potatoes, and artichokes. Use it as a rub for slow-roasting meats, where the long cooking time allows the flavor of the grains of paradise to really develop. Mix into ground turkey, chicken or portobello mushrooms for wonderful burgers. This blend was previously called 'Hyde Park Seasoning.' Ingredients: Cane sugar, kosher salt, Hawaiian black salt, spices, garlic, shallots, onion.
very good flavor
I mixed this spice blend with olive oil, then rubbed it all over portobello mushrooms preparatory to grilling them for "burgers". Before I added the oil, I tasted the spice blend. Immediately I was reminiscing about good-quality BBQ potato chips! The flavor profile was identical! I'm going to enjoy cooking with this blend.
It is great on chicken. Definitely my go to seasoning.
This rub smells great in the bottle but in use the flavor was very subtle. I’d say it lost some strength on the grill.
I found the World's Fair BBQ Rub excellent on pork, chicken, and grilled burgers.
It is a mild but flavorful seasoning that does not over power the flavor of the meat.
It has been complimentary to anything I have used it on, even breaded asparagus!
