I wish they would the forum folks would let us ask some questions in the Pro Chef sections as I notice some of them never go to this part but here goes.
In the cooking shows I notice that the cooks almost always use nothing more than salt and pepper so I become curious what else chefs use or what is a chefs favorite spice/spices? A seasona all favorite?
In the bbq world we use so may different "rubs", its a never ending oddessy to find that just right blend, but there does not seem to be one for "all" meats. I like certain flavors of chicken and a different one for pork and or steaks, brisket ect.
I personally do not get the chili powder in pork rib rubs which seems a must for most bbq cooks, my best prize winning ribs never had "chile" powder.
While on the subject I'm curious what brands or companies you guys may be buying from? When I owned a restaurant for a while we used the Farmer Brothers seasonings and bases, they were very good imo but then again there was nobody else out there selling something else, at least not in my neck of the woods.
