Here’s the Box Breakdown
Here's the rub first look inside the box
Our first glimpse inside the Here’s the Rub Subscription Box.
whats in here's the rub box
Everything that we received in our Here’s the Rub Subscription Box. This is the Alabama Box and features a sauce and two rubs from some of Alabama’s artisanal barbecue masters!

So what is all this stuff?

here's the rub pamphlet
The pamphlet included in the Here’s the Rub Box has the stories of each artisan and maker included in the Alabama Box. The inclusion of the stories and the work behind them and the passion that creates them makes us appreciate each flavor all the more.
Our first page explains how each month Here’s the Rub features a state and finds the best sauces and rubs around!
Beer Koozies
Two fun koozies! Love the colors! 
Cedarwood Wood Plank
cedarwood wood plank
$5(?)
We have to say that this is one of the most unique items we’ve ever received and we love that it opens your mind to trying new things while cooking (a wood plank for grilling was new to us).
Apple Hickory Wood Chips
$4.99
Each month your Here’s the Rub Box comes packed in a different kind of wood chip. This is the most amazing way we’ve ever seen a box packaged! After receiving this Mr. I’m Not a Tree immediately started googling different smoking recipes so we are pretty excited to see what the future brings.
dixie dirt rub
$6.99
Hailing from Andalusia, Alabama the creator originally just made this rub for his family and friends now some 15 years later he’s made his town a barbecue landmark! 
The flavor is incredibly fun! There’s some bright pepper-y notes and dashes of sweet. All in all a unique and flavorful rub!
Granville’s Gourmet Pixie Dust
$6.95
Anything that comes in a honey bear automatically makes us smile. It’s just the facts, folks. A decade of perfecting went into this rub made in Huntsville, Alabama. Granville Brunner attributes the delicious flavor of his ribs primarily to this seasoning!
demetri's barbecue sauce
$8.99
This sauce is from the legendary Birmingham Demetri’s BBQ. This sweet sauce was a recipe first crafted by Demetri himself and now after having passed away is a treasured secret of son Sam who now runs Demetri’s. Sam’s favorite thing about the restaurant? The customers – by eating together they create special bonds!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The presentation of the Here’s the Rub Box is incredible! The inclusion of the wood chips is an amazing touch and we’ve never seen anything quite like it before. Quality is awesome – each sauce is a passion project and for many, years of perfecting. The curation is great, we love that each month is a new state. It’s a journey of flavor and a great way to see different areas takes on the flavors of barbecue!
