The Hardcore Carnivore® seasoning line

Created by Jess Pryles and proudly made in Texas, this is the Hardcore Carnivore family of rubs and seasonings.

hardcore carnivore black, red and amplify

Hardcore Carnivore: Black

Our original rub that started the craze. Hardcore Black is a gluten and MSG free rub, designed to complement steaks and meats of all kinds (though it is particularly magical with beef and venison!). Black has all the standard spices and ingredients to take your steaks and meats to the next level, with the addition of one exotic ingredient… there’s charcoal in the rub!

Black will boost not just the flavor, but the appearance of your food. First: it provides a great foundation base for a crust to form, particularly when grilled. Second: since the product darkens the exterior of the meat prior to cooking, you won’t be tempted to overcook it just to achieve an appealing outer color – it’s already half way there before you even start cooking.Thirdly: the vivid black color creates an amazing contrast against interior of the meat, making it incredibly visually appealing.

Hardcore Carnivore: Red

Hardcore Red is designed specifically to give your butts, ribs and roasts and incredible bright red finish. So many fans of our original product, Black, loved the taste but found the black color didn’t suit some of their cooks (like pork ribs). You asked, we listened! HCR has the same understated yet delicious flavor profile as our Black product, but with a vivid all-natural red hue – no artificial colorings here!

Unlike many rubs designed for pork, Hardcore Red is not particularly sweet. This allows cooks to customize their own levels of sweetness using honey/brown sugar in wraps, and finishing sauces.  Made in Texas using premium quality spices, HCR will fast become a staple in your BBQ and grilling arsenal.

Hardcore Carnivore: Amplify

Hardcore Carnivore Amplify turns up the savory volume and intensifies the flavor of your food. This MSG-free seasoning is designed to provide an extra boost of umami to anything you sprinkle it on. Amplify is made a blend of all natural ingredients, including chicken fat powder, so there’s meat in the seasoning itself.

To use: use Amplify on it’s own as a finishing powder or in conjunction with your favorite rub for an extra boost of savory flavor. Amplify can be used to create savory dips, shaken over ribs before wrapping, sprinkled on fries, dusted over eggs and added to any other dishes needing a little savory enhancement.
