Traeger's NEW Spices Guide

You may have noticed that we recently introduced a few new spices to our Traeger Family. Let us acquaint you with 6 new outstanding, flavor-packed spices that will take you around the world and open your mind to all sorts of new Traeger possibilities.

We're talking about our Asian BBQ Rub, Jamaican Jerk Rub, Kansas City BBQ Rub, Rib RubSweet and Smokey Chipotle Rub, and Thai Red Curry. Over the next couple of weeks we'll show you some recipe ideas and tips. But for now, let's talk spices.

ASIAN BBQ RUB

Asian Rub

This blend combines in one bottle our favorite flavors from Eastern Asia. The salt of the soy sauce seasoning is balanced with the savoriness of toasted sesame seeds, sweetness of orange peel and a nice kick of chili pepper.

Whether you use this on chicken, fish, beef, pork or even tofu you will come out looking like an Asian food grilling pro. Try putting some on our Grilled Asian Chicken Burgers or Sake Shrimp.

JAMAICAN JERK RUB

Jamaican jerk rub

Lovers of the robust and bold flavors of the Caribbean, this rub is for you. We blended the heat of the scotch bonnet pepper with onions and garlic and a dash of the warmth and sweetness of nutmeg, allspice and mace.

Our star for this spice mix is chicken but it's strong and zesty enough to enhance any meat. Of course this would be perfect on our Jamaican Jerked Chicken Legs or perhaps some beef kebabs.

KANSAS CITY BBQ RUB

Kansas City bbq rub

You barbecue connoisseurs know that there are different nuances to the BBQ flavors in each region of the United States. This Kansas City BBQ Rub is a standout because of its brown sugar sweetness, characteristic of the delicious sticky-fingered Midwestern BBQ, which is enhanced by garlic, paprika and other quintessential Kansas barbecue spices.

When we think Kansas City BBQ, we think meat: beef, pork and chicken. Try sprinkling some on BBQ Chicken Breasts, Baby Back Ribs with Maple Bourbon Glaze or our Traeger essential, Pulled Pork.

RIB RUB

Hot and sweet with some mustard seeds and savory herbs, this Rib Rub will work meat magic on your ribs.

We can't help but suggest using it on some of our favorite rib recipes like our 3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs, Sweet 'n Smoky Barbecued Ribs or for faster ingestion, Quick Ribs.

SWEET AND SMOKEY CHIPOTLE RUB

Smokey Chipotle rub

What can we say? We love a good hit of heat. We were thinking of you when creating a seasoning that has both the in-your-face heat as well as the more subtle and sneaky heat of the chipotles, or smoked jalapenos.

This spice rub is begging for a companion of pork, chicken or beef. Why not try it with a Southwestern Roasted Chicken or Chipotle-Mandarin Glazed Pork Tenderloin?

THAI RED CURRY

Traeger's Red Curry rub

A curry is a combination of herbs and/or spices, typically associated with Southern and Southeastern Asian cuisines - in this case Thailand. Our Thai Red Curry is a blend of those adventurous and exotic flavors including cilantro, jalapenos, chili peppers and turmeric, perfectly balanced to make your palate oh-so happy.

You could truly give any meat some love with this curry, but we love the idea of trying it with our Thai Chicken Skewers, Thai-Style Beef Skewers or even use it to spice up our Chicken Challenge.
