Our Chipotle Hot wins again! American Royal's New Best Hot Rub on the Planet 2021!

Kansas City, Missouri – The American Royal is pleased to announce the results of the 2022 American Royal World Series of Barbecue® Rub Contest. The rub contest was held on May 15, 2022 in Kansas City at the American Royal Complex. 

Loubier Gourmet Hot Chipotle Seasoning received a total of 177.7028 points from 6 judges, 4 which gave the Chipotle Seasoning a perfect score of 36 points. 



Michael Loubier, the founder and CEO of Loubier Gourmet comments, "We are very fortunate to be able to take the award of Best Hot Rub in the Planet 2 out of the last 3 years. We aspire to continue making the best tasting, highest quality seasonings, sauces, and more, so stay tuned."



On May 15, a group of 40 Certified Barbecue Judges assembled at the American Royal to participate in a blind tasting of over 150 barbecue rub entries. The assembled judges evaluated barbecue rubs submitted from 29 states and 9 countries including Australia, Canada, Finland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, the U.K., and the U.S.A.


Prior to judging, each rub was cooked onto a pork tenderloin provided by Prairie Fresh in an identical manner. Judges based their scoring on appearance, texture, taste alone, and taste after being cooked onto pork tenderloin. Entries were judged in 2 categories, Hot and Mild.


Congratulations to Holy Smoke's Holy Smoke Dry Rub Seasoning for being the winner of the mild category.
