Fette Sau's Dry Rub Recipe

Fette Sau in Williamsburg, Brooklyn was one of the first BBQ joints in the US to feature exclusively heritage breeds on their menu. For nearly 20 years they have offered Berkshire, Red Wattle, Tamworth, and Duroc Boston Butt, Belly, Bacon Ends, and Ribs and have been an anchor to Heritage Foods! Owner Joe Carroll explains in his cookbook Feeding the Fire "We use this rub on just about everything that we smoke at the restaurant, but you needn't follow the recipe exactly. Feel free to improvise on the ingredients and amounts, reducing the sugar for a less-sweet bark (crust), increasing the cayenne for a spicier one, and so one."

We are proud to be able to offer these stunning Good Shepherd Ranch chickens fresh for the first time — preorder now for delivery the week of June 5th. Standardbred chickens are slow-growing and pasture raised to 16 weeks, more than double the industry standard. Each chicken is laced with ribbons of sun-yellow fat that self-baste the bird as it renders, resulting in silky meat and crackly bronzed skin.
