Once you find something that suits you, that perfectly satisfies your taste, you tend to stick with it and it becomes your go-to... your usual. After lots of taste tests, on all kinds of food, we found ourselves continually coming back to this spice, and it earned the nick name "The Usual", which ended up sticking. It really does go perfect with damn near anything.
"The Usual has become my go to in everything from chicken to seafood, pork to pasta. I love it. Period."
– Shawn B.

Inspired by our insatiable thirst for craft brews, our robust and distinctive sauces rely on three of the best—Stout, IPA, and Pilsner—to create a finger-licking finish for ribs, a mustardy wet rub for slow-smoked pork, and citrusy glaze for chicken wings and more.
Paula: I am totally into one-skillet dinners on the grill these days. Whether it’s chops, steaks, or something that catches my eye at the fish counter, there’s something delightful about searing you protein in a preheated skillet, adding a mess of seasonal vegetables, finishing with fresh herbs and an acid like citrus juice or vinegar, and then serving the meal straight from the sizzling pan. Also: I love the firm texture and rich flavor of Gulf Coast Grouper.
Scott: Cooking in a cast iron pan over live fire is one of my favorite things. I love the char and the smoke you can achieve with this method - plus it won’t stink up your kitchen. As a pro tip, test to make sure your cast iron pan will fit on the grill with the lid closed so you can capture some of that yummy smoke flavor.Read more
Charred citrus juice, an ancho chile spirit (Ancho Reyes), and a spicy rim make this margarita a force to be reckoned with. If you can't find Ancho Reyes, swap in an equal amount of tequila or mezcal for a less spicy (but still spectacular) result. A mix of citrus varieties may result in a different yield, but don't fret, you'll measure 2 ounces for each round of drinks (and you can drink any leftovers).Read more
