About Rub With Love

Tom Douglas first introduced Rub with Love after being asked countless times to reveal the secret ingredient in Etta’s Spice Rubbed Salmon. It’s a warm and sweet blend of smoked paprika that we smoke in house, brown sugar, Kosher salt, black pepper and thyme.

Since then, he has created a whole range of fresh, handcrafted, versatile rubs, barbecue and teriyaki sauces, and mustards that add a flavorful kick and a whole lot of love to just about any meat, fish or vegetable!
