    Your thread title says “rugs”. Not rubs.

    It's just activated charcoal. Then they add other ingredients to the flavor profile.  
    Nothing more nothing less.  Some like these rubs for steak because of the coloration and helps give a cheat crust.
    I've used Hardcore Carnivore from Jess Pryles a few times and it was good. Personally I like basic SPG, herbs and brown butter on a good steak unless I'm using it for some specific dish.

    Big fan of Ms. Rubin’s Black Magic for steaks. The recipe came from a grocery store/old butcher shop in Montgomery,AL. It is a great product.

    I use HC Black as a supplement if I think the going in brisket rub is too light in color and I don't feel like crushing more black pepper.  
    Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.

    I use a rub called Gun Powder. You can find it now on Amazon. It goes well with most dishes, and unfortunately, on popcorn, it is awesome. I say unfortunately, because cutting back on carbs is over once you try that combination.

    For those that have done "The Blast" with us the last couple of years, that is what the tenderloin sliders with the sriracha bleu cheese dressing had on them.

    We would cook/smoke with pecan then slice/shave 2 or 3 whole tenderloins, never anything left to bring home.

    It is a bonafide enhancer to beef, chicken, pork, and seafood when grilling, salads, stews, whatever.
