Review of Swamp Dust, Red eye Express, and Jamaican Firewalk
<p />Dusted 3 chicken breasts, both sides, cooked for approx 8 min per side at 350 degrees.[p]Swamp Dust- Complex yet soothing spicy smell, well rounded and finely ground. Has a reddish-orange color to it, and tasted out of the bag, has a light paprika taste, then warms up to a light heat.
When cooked on the chiken breast it came out REALLY tasty, but it was a lot more mild then I expected. I give this spice a 6.5 out of 10. My only suggestion is TURN UP THE HEAT.[p]Jamaican Firewalk - Maybe I got a bad batch, but on the sticker it claims "This rub, with a huge peppery punch, is not for the mild crowd" but I was sorely dissapointed with it's level of spicyness, it was seriously weak. With that said, it did have a TRULY delightful and zesty flavor to it, and really surrounded your tastebuds with a myriad of perfectly harmonious spices. I am actually glad is wasn't spicy, for I think heat would overpower the delicate flavors present in this rub. Eventhough it wasn't hot, I really enjoyed this rub and give it an 8 out of 10. (This was the only rub my girlfriend could handle.... the rest were too spic for her)[p]Last, but sure as hell not least, is the DIZZY PIG Red Eye Express- All I can say, is one smell says IT ALL. I mean this is THE rub. It has a smoothe coffee infused aroma that is nicely complimented with fennel seeds and chili powders. This is THE BEST..... I repeat THE BEST rub, I have EVER had, this stuff is just killer. It really enhances the flavor of ANY meat. I tried using it on steaks, Chicken, pork, and even scallops and shrimp, and it worked well with all of them. Once again, I think the heat could be turned up a few notches, but aside from that, this rub is devine, and I give it a 10 out of 10. [p]Keep up the amazing creations Chris, these rubs are amazing!! Oh, and can I buy a tube of Red Eye Express? I used that stuff up REALLY fast.
