Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy!

This week's Window Shopping Theme is....BBQ!!  There are a lot of great ideas on Etsy to enhance your next cookout!!  Let's take a peek at a few!!




A perfect gift for your outdoor chef!

This lovely frosted gift box contains eight 1.75 inch (48 mm) glass top containers filled with 8 savory and exotic rubs that will have you wanting to fire up the grill every night.

The Rubs

:: Chimichurri Rub ::
This rub originates from Argentina. A mix of herbs and spices- when combined with oil and vinegar it becomes a sauce for grilled meats. Lovely on fish, veggies or red meats.

Contains: oregano, basil, parsley, thyme, coarse sea salt, black peppercorns, savory, smoked paprika (pimentón), garlic powder, crushed chili peppers.

:: Cocoa & Spice Rub ::
This fragrant cocoa rub works best when meat is grilled over a lower heat for a longer time period. The combination of dark cocoa and spices is heavenly, and great on some pork ribs.

Contains: white peppercorns, ground coriander seeds, ground cinnamon, coarse sea salt, dark unsweetened cocoa powder, ground nutmeg and ground cloves.

:: Cajun Spice Rub ::
Heat and a touch of garlic combine nicely in this rub to complement almost any grilled meat, especially flavorful on chicken.

Contains: paprika, cayenne pepper, black peppercorns, minced garlic, onion flakes, oregano, salt.

:: Moroccan Spice Rub ::
This rub is based on the traditional ras el hanout, which translates to head of the class. Best used with red meats or sprinkled over BBQ'd potatoes. Try making some authentic kebabs with this rub!

Contains: cumin seeds, coriander seeds, allspice, awojan, black peppercorns, ground cloves, fenugreek, coarse sea salt, crushed chili flakes.

:: Scandanavian Rub ::
This is the rub you want for every wild salmon filet you grill this summer. So simple and so good. Amazing added to pasta salad too!

Contains: dill weed, lemon pepper, sea salt and chervil.

:: Mexican Rub ::
This smoky rub contains three different types of pepper- ancho, guajillo and crushed red chilies. Turn up the heat on a nice sirloin or flank steak with this rub!

Contains: cumin seeds, coriander seeds, guajillo, ancho and crushed red chilies, minced garlic, onion flakes, oregano, sea salt.

:: Jamaican Jerk Rub ::
A taste of the islands that is great as a rub or as a marinade. You can use this on everything from chicken to pork to firm white fish, it's always a winner!

Contains: pimiento (allspice), chili powder, crushed chilies, coriander, mustard, black pepper, ginger, garlic, thyme, paprika, basil, cloves, oregano, salt.

:: African Berbere Rub ::
Berbere is the fiery heart of Ethiopian cuisine, a hot and earthy combination when used on the grill. Try some on steaks, grilled corn, or chicken wings.

Contains: cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, ground ginger, garlic powder, fenugreek, cardamom, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, allspice.


These rubs are NOT commerical mixes, but hand blended in small batches by me. Includes serving suggestions on the ingredients insert included with the kit.

Each container holds about 1 ounce (30 g) of spice rub.
box size: 4 x 4 x 2 inches (10 x 10 x 5 cm)
Containers are labeled on the side and are individually sealed for safe shipping.


When friends are over whip this out and let everyone guess what it is, you'll hear all kinds of replies. It started out as a old rusty railroad spike. When heated to 1900F degrees and hand hammered out it becomes a medieval looking steak flipper. Works great on roasts and chops too. Not good with fish though.. Approx. length 15-17in. When done barbecuing maintain polished steel with a little cooking oil.



These barbeque coasters are made from ceramic household tiles and measure 4.25” x 4.25” (approx 11cm x 11cm). They are backed with four squares of cork to avoid scratching your surfaces and are sealed with a waterproof varnish to protect against water damage. Patterns may vary slightly depending on cut of paper. This set of 4 coasters comes with a paper wrapping for easy gift giving.



Perfect for any backyard summer barbeque. Invite friends to your backyard barbeque with these bright cards. 

Blank space available to write the necessary details. Set contains 8 A2 sized cards and natural stock envelopes.
