SPOGOS Rub – 6oz
Oakridge SPOGOS Rub – 6oz
SPOGOS (pronounced /spaw ‘gOs/), is Master Blender Michael Trump’s unique interpretation of the classic SPOG (salt, pepper, onion and garlic) rub. Balanced salt and a big black pepper punch, with deep earthy and umami mid-tones from porcini mushrooms and savory herbal subtleties that linger on your palate making you want more and more.
I recently did a test brisket cook with SPOGOS and Black OPS. The primary purpose was to determine the flavor composition differences between the two rubs. My tasting notes have been pasted below:
“The Black Ops brisket was fantastic as usual. For those of you who haven’t cooked a brisket with Black Ops, I would best describe the Black Ops flavor profile on brisket as “highly integrated”. By this I mean the individual flavors within the rub all tightly combine to produce a defined “singular” flavor. A symphony of sorts, where the flavors all harmonize and become greater than their individual parts. If I were to attempt to describe the Black Ops flavor profile, I guess it almost reminds me of a spicy pepperoni-like flavor when cooked on a brisket for 12+ hours over hickory. Slightly spicy, peppery but not overpoweringly so, savory umami, slightly salty, with garlic and smoke in the background. Certainly not understated and absolutely perfect for brisket.”
