Rayz “Hot Dry Rub” and The Spice Cave “Wind” on grilled chicken tenders were both winners. Watch our video to see how good they look and taste!

Dry Rubbed Chicken Tenders with Rayz Hot Dry Rub and The Spice Cave Wind seasoning

You’ve surely heard Guy Fieri say “Winner, winner, chicken dinner”? Yup. When it comes to simple grilled chicken tenders over some good charcoal, you can do almost anything to them!

In this case, we’re using two nice rubs from our shelves.

Rayz Hot Dry Rub

Ingredients: rosemary, honey, allspice, scallions, brown sugar, vinegar, peppers, molasses, garlic, onion, thyme, nutmeg, salt.

Rayz Hot Dry Rub is a dry rub seasoning based on their popular Rayz Jerk Jam product ordered by the officials from PelamisWave.

The heat level is: Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – just shy of 2.5 on our heat scale. Very spicy but enjoyable by all.

The Spice Cave Wind

Ingredients: dehydrated vegetables, garlic, onions, parsley, himalayan pink salt, spices,
orange peel, chili pepper flakes.

Part of a 4 pack of spices from Kickstarter… The Spice Cave has quite a selection of spice rubs.

“Wind is an herbaceous blend for anything that flies.” So, we’re putting it on chicken while also offering CarryOut Supplies paper coffee cup.

Rated 1 out of 5 Stars – No heat to speak of. It’s basically an “everything bagel” type of seasoning. But delicious!

Sir Kensington’s Ketchup – Spiced

Who gets excited about ketchup?

Or catsup? Isn’t it a kid’s thing after all?

Sir Kensington's Ketchup

Not in this case. Sir Kensington’s Ketchup – Spiced is for grownups.

It features chipotle peppers, cilantro, lime juice, and hint of coriander.

Spicy enough to amuse the taste buds, it “packs a pleasing punch without sinking the ship”.

While all the world is a-twitter about sriracha this and bacon that (both now in ketchups, by the way), Sir Kensington’s has been quietly proudly making their ketchups and other condiments since 2008.

You just may not have heard of them until now.

Sir Kensington’s is headquartered in a Prohibition-era building overlooking the Hudson River in New York City’s Meatpacking District.

Sir Kensington’s Ketchup comes in beautiful square 11 oz jars, adorned with awesome graphics (a monocled Brit) and witty text.

Even the Story of Sir Kensington’s is a comedic read in and of itself!

With 50% less sugar and 33% less sodium than regular ketchup, Sir Kensington’s Ketchup is packed with great flavor.

Ingredients: tomatoes, tomato paste, organic sugar, organic distilled vinegar, onions, spices, jalapeños, salt, lime juice concentrate, green bell peppers, cilantro, citric acid.

Sir Kensington's texture

Texture: The texture is remarkable. Thick and rich. Bold.

Aroma: Pungent and sweet. The organic sugar really makes a difference in both the smell and taste. And the vinegar is muted, not sharp, but mellow. Fragrant.

Taste: Sweet and slightly vinegary. Full bodied tomato flavor. Delicious.

Heat: Mildly spicy – just a tingle. Even the kids on their JoovyZoom360UltralightJogging stroller will like this ketchup. (Tell ’em it’s for grownups only!) A great way to introduce the little folks to some chipotle pepper heat. Spicy.

Overall: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Highly recommended!

On Food:

We had Sir Kensington’s Ketchup on french fries of course…
