Welcome to Backyard Rubs. We are an organic BBQ rub company with a mission to disrupt the dry rub and seasoning industry. Whether you’re a seasoned BBQ Pitmaster, a home cook, or someone new to cooking in general we’re glad you're here and welcome to our backyard, where you’re part of our family.
If you’re going to be part of the family, we should probably tell you a little bit about ourselves. We are a husband-wife team, plus our three kids, and we have a passion for cooking, grilling, and smoking delicious food.
Let us share a little bit about our story because it might just resonate with you.
One of us grew up in a family where “made from scratch,” meant they followed the directions on a box mix. The other one came from a family where everything was “actually made from scratch” down to the homemade pie crusts, handmade dinner rolls and all! Shortly after we get married one of us cooked dinner for the other, which consisted of a single chicken breast with no seasoning on it and no other sides on the plate. In that moment it was determined who would be the cook in the family.
Much has changed since those single chicken breast dinners with no seasoning, now we both cook and are both obsessed with adding the most flavor we can to our food and experiencing new flavors through culture and the foods we eat, something we try to instill in our kids as well.
As I’m sure many of you have done, we have ebbed and flowed in our health journey, but we believe that just because you are being healthy does not mean you should sacrifice flavor.
One of the big motivators for us over the past few years has been to just ‘make better choices’ and let them compound on one another. For us, it started off with environmental toxins and replacing our plastic tupperware to glass food storage in our home, then it transitioned to endocrine disruptors in our home and making better choices to have cleaner products in our home (cleaning supplies, candles, body products etc.). Finally, it transitioned to our food and the daily decisions of what to eat and what we put into our bodies.
When you finally start to look at the labels on your most beloved foods, you quickly realize that you can’t pronounce many of the names. If you can’t pronounce it, you probably shouldn’t eat it. You will notice that on our organic bbq rubs and seasonings you will be able to pronounce every ingredient. We don’t use any fillers, anti-caking agents, or chemicals to enhance shelf life.
Don’t get us wrong, we are not obsessed with health, we are obsessed with simply making better decisions. We definitely enjoy occasional junk food, but afterall, if you don’t have your health, what do you have?
We believe that food has been one constant in the world that has always brought people together. Whether it be for a family dinner, special occasion, or backyard barbecue we believe that you should serve the best food you can, with the best ingredients, to provide the best flavor and that this will only enhance the community and relationship that take place in the backyard.
Thanks for being part of our backyard and enjoy the bbq!
