If you’ve ever spent any time on YouTube watching smoked and bbq meat videos, you’ve probably come across the Guga Foods channel and heard about his famous Guga Rub. The channel is full of great videos and food experiments that everyday backyard Pitmasters would never dream of trying. Like Dry Aged Nutella…. Yup, he really did it.
In many of Guga’s recipes, he uses the Guga Foods BBQ Rub. He claims that the Guga Foods BBQ Rub is great on Pork, Chicken and Fish and we have to tell you, he’s right!
The best thing to use the Guga Rub on is steak, however, we’ve seen him use it on many different cuts. If you’re making steak and want to take it to the next level, try Gugs’s Butter of the Gods. It is an amazing steak topper that you’ll want again and again.
