Let's hear it for (West) Hollywood! Who doesn't love a delicious fish taco?

Use our salt-free WeHo Rub on grilled chicken or fish—it makes an excellent fish taco! Dust over scallops before searing. Rub into the top of cedar-plank salmon. Mix into the coating for popcorn shrimp, or stir into mayonnaise with some lemon juice for a unique tartar sauce. It’s delicious dusted over chicken or zucchini and summer squash kebabs.

Looking for meals that pair well with delicious cockails?

Our Hillcrest Blend pairs perfectly with the iconic Mojito.

We had to honor Hillcrest during Pride week with a fun, bright blend! Brisk and fruity with lime and tangerine, this salt-free seasoning fuses fruit and savory flavors for a summer-bright blend that’s good all year ‘round.

Try it on seafood like cod, scallops and shrimp using a marinade (just mix the blend with lime juice, olive oil and water!)

Back in the late 1960s, San Diego’s Hillcrest neighborhood transformed from a postwar near-wasteland of single-family homes, to an affordable rent-space and unique social scene for gay and le***an San Diegans escaping hostility.

Today Hillcrest is known for its tolerant, diverse, and locally-owned businesses and its giant Pride Parade and Festival including a 1.5-mile colorful float parade.

Relax and taste the delicate floral notes accented by fresh coconut, pineapple, and rose petals for a taste of tropical paradise.

This Lavender Heights Organic Tea blends the calming properties found in lavender with the exceptional quality of the minimally-processed organic white tea.

This district is located at the heart of Midtown Sacramento and boasts many gay-owned clubs, restaurants, salons, galleries and retail stores. To celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community, the city approved the installation of rainbow crosswalks at the heart of Lavender Heights in 2015.

I left my heart in San Francisco! Literally the heart of California’s LGBTQIA+ community, the Castro is one of the World’s most well-known gayborhoods.

Have you tried our Castro Mix?

Celebrating Castro’s history of diversity, we’ve combined the spiciness of Aleppo pepper with the lush flavor of honey, culminating in a harmoniaous blend that has a touch of tartness and a little bit of smoke.

The taste opens with a sweet and salty rush, followed by spicy heat and smoky aromatics. It has a clean, tart, citrusy finish.

It’s delicious on seafood, so toss it over Grilled Shrimp for a fast, delicious meal. Rub it on turkey legs and put them in the smoker, or stick to tradition and rub onto pork for slow cooker pulled pork. Try on crispy cauliflower hot wings, or sprinkle over homemade hummus for a little sweet heat and texture. Roasted chicken thighs with lemon, spiced lentils, compound butter to put over steak, shrimp, chicken, or baked potatoes, are all excellent uses for this blend.

This blend (and our whole shop) is 15% off through the end of June, use RAINBOW24 on orders over $50 to access our Pride Sale! 🌈

Save this for your next BBQ 🍗 No matter what you're grilling we've got you covered!

Consider a foundation - a thin layer of oil, mustard, Italian dressing or “slather”
on the meat.

Keep this ideal ratio of sugar, salt and herbs in mind . This ratio is pretty typical of many award-winning Kansas City BBQ spice blends.

HINT: The sugar helps with making that delicious bark crust

Smoked Salty Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies 🙌 Try saying that three times with a mouthful of said cookies 😂 For these, we used our smoker from and topped it all off with our Cyprus flake salt.

Cyprus flake is a deliciously crunchy and mild salt that practically melts when it hits food. It’s a happy salt that comes from the Mediterranean and has been sun-dried for weeks, which is what gives it texture and shape. A great finishing salt, even on c

“Gourmets, foodies, cooks, & chefs rejoice. This is spice rack NIRVANA. Think a large variety of glass jars, packed with popular, and some hard-to-find blends from around the world. Asian mixtures, India garam masala, curries. Blends of African, Middle East, European, Latin America, BBQ, & steakhouse rubs, just to mention a few. Along with aromatic dried herbs, smoky salts , black & hot peppers combos. Even a few loose teas to tempt your senses. It's a small shop, but big on exotic, aromatic, subtle and pungent aromas.”

Thanks, Gus for the rave review!

Fun fact! The spice trade formed what today is the most influential city in the world, New York. This was due to a conflict resolution between the British and Dutch, New York (previously New Amsterdam under Dutch occupation) was given over to the British in exchange for the Dutch control of Run Island, which was the home of prized spices nutmeg and mace.

Ever wondered what makes BBQ rubs so irresistible?

It all starts with a trio of essential ingredients: paprika, onion, and garlic. These form the backbone of our blends, adding depth and complexity.

But that's just the beginning! Next we layer in salt, sugar, and a symphony of other spices to create that crave-worthy flavor.

Some of our favorites include chili peppers for heat, black pepper for bite, earthy cumin, tangy mustard, smoky hickory, and aromatic oregano.

The trickiest part? Finding the perfect balance between sweet and spicy!

We use a delicate touch with our fiery ingredients, ensuring they complement rather than overpower the other flavors.

Veggie heads rejoice! This tandoori roasted cauliflower steak will have you 🤤

Made with our tandoori spice blend, this is an easy dish to throw in the oven or your smoker for a version as close as you can get without the Tandoor clay oven.

Vegans, you can adapt this recipe to swap out the Greek yogurt for a dairy-free version.

Thanks, John! Check out our Applewood Chipotle Rub - it has the right balance of heat and smoky sweetness and is excellent on the grill or smoker, especially on pork, beef, and chicken.

Use this spice blend in the slow cooker or pressure cooker on your pulled pork recipes, add to ground meat for tasty burgers, or use to season your wings or ribs. It’s also amazing on vegetables! Try on roasted Brussels sprouts, corn on the cob, grilled asparagus, oven fries, or sweet potatoes.

Use 1 Tbsp. of dry rub per pound of chicken or pork, for fish use half that amount.
