Grill + Roast Spice Collection
Fire up your grill and break out the meats! The Grill & Roast collection is here to take the guesswork out of marinades, rubs, and seasonings. Try them on vegetables! Live life on the edge!
Includes three 2oz tins:
Carolina Pork Rub
Hot, full-flavored, smoky, sweet & zesty. This tastes exactly as a classic BBQ mix should. Rub generously on pork, poultry, or any other meat, let sit for 24 hours, and redcoat before cooking. Don't be stingy!
Cowboy Steak Rub
Spicy, herbaceous, and smoky. We call it a steak rub but don't be fooled. This wonderful blend will enhance just about anything that touches the grill.
Honey & Herb Rub
Fresh, full-flavored, and smoky. The more "gourmet" and less "rustic" tasting of the bunch. The perfect blend for all things seafood, but also great on chicken, pork, rice, or sprinkled on veggies.
Handmade in Asheville, North Carolina
With five James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef in the Southeast under his belt, Meherwan Irani is finally confident this crazy idea of getting into the food biz might just be working out. Growing up in India, Meherwan noticed that spices, like produce, are part of the natural rhythm of the seasons. Seeds are planted, and grow until procured at different times of the year. Then they're used in making blends and masalas. The entire family is involved in this process. Each family’s blend is distinctive and a source of pride. Every fall, a whole week was dedicated to making their own dhansak masala in Meherwan’s grandmother's home. Many of these recipes are handed down for generations. In this case from Meherwan’s grandmother, down to his mother, and eventually passed on to Meherwan. When Chai Pani first opened, Meherwan’s mom came to the U.S. and spent two months teaching the staff of Chai Pani about her blends and how to work with spices. Now Meherwan has found his own tradition as a chef and his spice blends reflect that journey.
We source directly from quality suppliers in small quantities, anywhere from twenty-five to one hundred pounds in a delivery. This method of buying and receiving smaller shipments ensures the freshness of the product not only for our benefit, but for the benefit of our customers. This is also why we roast, grind, and pack our spices to order.
