ChefSteps Indoor BBQ Bark Builder

$19.95 USD
No smoker? No problem. This genius product from ChefSteps has got you covered- literally. Use ChefSteps’ Bark Builder as an under-layer with any rub to get that crusty, crunchy bark of real barbecue– even indoors. Barbecue pit or sous vide + oven? Nobody will be able to tell the difference. This modernist blend is like spice glue- sprinkle it on the meat and then add the spice to create magnificent bark. Each one cup jar is packed with a generous 6 oz measure of Bark Builder.

How To Use
Lightly moisten a protein or hearty vegetable by lathering or spritzing with bbq sauce, mustard, beer or juice.  Once moistened all over, lightly dust on the bark builder using a fine mesh sifter to evenly distribute a thin layer.  Let it absorb (generally this takes less than a minute) then generously  coat the protein with desired spice rub.

Flipping the bark builder coated protein is sticky business. Use tongs to avoid bald spots and spicy fingers.
