At once both warm and dark, ancho chile gives great barbecue an air of mystery. Ancho chiles are dried poblano peppers, prized by modern chefs for their rich, fruity depth and intense smoky flavor. They're not spicy, just rich and inviting. Here, the ancho chile gives an incredible richness to barbeque, making it perfect for smoked beef or pork or for adding that excitement to other dishes. This Omaha Steaks dry rub blend was mixed up in our Test Kitchen, tweaked and tested to perfection. With extra-coarse particles, it's designed to create big flavor up front and give a delayed flavor explosions as you eat.
