Cookshack - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
It doesn't matter if the grass is plush green or the ground is covered in snow, my husband loves to grill. He has one charcoal grill and one smoker, with the dreams of someday owning a premium grill. Cookshack is a company that manufactures premium pellet grills and owning one would be a dream come true for my husband.

When my husband grills food outside or even when he's cooking in the kitchen, he flavors foods with spices and sauces. A plain piece of meat can really be flavorful when the right spices are added to it. Cookshack also sells rubs, mixes, and sauces that my husband has been using almost daily since receiving them. Spicy Chicken Rub, Rib Rub, Brisket Rub, Chili Mix, and Spicy Barbecue Sauce made by Cookshack all contain a perfect blend of spices and herbs to enhance the flavor of meat.

My husband has been using the same chili recipe for years, rarely altering it. He made a stock pot of chili for my mother's birthday a week ago and added in Cookshack's Chili Mix instead of his regular seasoning. Because he has a heavy hand and was making a lot of chili, Jason added almost half the bottle of Chili Mix to the concoction. It was superb! There was hardly any chili left at the end of the night. His chili was good before, but the Chili Mix brought it to a whole new level.

I don't care much for spicy foods or sauces, but my husband and teen sons are big fans of the heat. They've been adding Spicy Chicken Rub and Spicy Barbecue Sauce to their meats and like the added kick. I tried them as well and didn't find them to be so hot I couldn't eat them. I'd say they gave off a mildly hot flavor. The Rib Rub is my favorite of them all, but I can't say I dislike any of them. With Jason's fine cooking skills and Cookshack's tasty rubs and sauce, we've been eating like kings!

Win It!

One person will win a 5-Pack Spice Kit from Cookshack that includes Rib Rub, Brisket Rub, Spicy Barbecue Sauce, Spicy Chicken Rub, and Chili Mix.
