As the fire begins to cook the meat, Grub Rub seasoning will create it's own delicious sauce to seal in the meat's natural juices and flavor. This “old family recipe” keeps the meat moist and tender throughout cooking. Grub Rub seasoning first arrived on the shelves of Randall's grocery stores in 1994. Now, you can find it in close to 1,000 stores across the United States.
