Our History

With Christ, all things are possible. To my Dad, you left us at such a young age (44). If only you could see how much everyone loves your seasoning.

This recipe, written in a generic form, was created by my father in the late 1960s. He left the Florida panhandle and moved to Houston when he was only 17. During his life here, he fell in love with Texas BBQ. As a young teenager I watched my Dad and his friend Robert design and build a BBQ pit. He listened to professionals and constantly experimented with different ideas until he created this recipe.

All my life, people have complimented me on my cooking. They did not know that I had a secret family recipe that uses the finest ingredients available. In March 1991, I gave my life to Christ. About a year later my wife and I hosted a baby shower for some good friends. Several people at the shower were insisting that I give them the recipe. Most of these people I did not even know. I politely declined, explaining it was a family secret. Then God (and my wife) put it on my heart to see if I could sell it. He helped me with the name Grub Rub®. My wife and I did our first demo in July of 1992. We sold 75 jars not knowing what we were doing. In 1994, Grub Rub® seasoning first arrived on the shelves of Randall's grocery stores. Now you can find us in close to 1,000 stores across the United States. You can still find me doing shows and demos during the weekends through Texas.
