  • Our steak rub contains smoked salt, pepper and onion, and garlic granules. These flavours compliment and intensify the classic barbecue flavours you know and love.

    This steak rub recipe can be adapted to fit your own preferences and works well on chicken and pork too. Try adding a little smoked paprika to the rub or some dried herbs. It’s best to marinate the steak the night before so that the salt can properly infuse and tenderise the meat.


    • 1tsp smoked salt
    • 1/4tsp ground black pepper
    • 1/2tsp garlic granules
    • 1/4tsp onion granules
    • 2 steaks, we used 250g cuts of sirloin


    • Mix the salt, pepper and onion and garlic granules together. Massage over both sides of each steak and leave to infuse for at least 1hr or ideally overnight.

    • Bring the steaks to room temperature. Cook for 3 mins on each side on the hot section of your barbecue for a medium-rare finish. Leave to rest for 5mins before slicing and serving.
