100% Handcrafted,

Authentic Flavor

Welcome to Black River BBQ. My name is Mike and I’m a BBQ addict. If you’re like me, then you’re passionate about cooking meat outdoors. It’s a primal thing that we can’t ignore. My goal here is to help you make the best BBQ possible so you get more enjoyment from every bite.

Launched in 2017, Black River BBQ rubs are special for a few reasons. 1) They feature full-flavored, all-natural Southwestern spices with no MSG, no fillers or preservatives, and just the right amount of salt so you can pack-on as much flavor as you want. 2) Every healthy, small batch is 100% handmade by me and only me in Flagstaff, Arizona beside the tallest mountain in the state (nearly 13,000 feet high). 3) Finally, these rubs taste great on just about anything, so they’re easy to use for grilling or smoking, baking or frying, in your kitchen or the backyard.


Plus, later this year, part of the proceeds will go to an incredible foundation that supports wildland firefighters and their families. I have tremendous respect for the wildland fire community. Their hard work, training, dedication, and sacrifice are important. This is my small way of acknowledging that.​

Thanks for checking-out my goods. I guarantee that you, your family, and your friends will instantly fall in love with these exciting BBQ rubs. I'm taking a break until the Covid-19 pandemic passes, so please use the Contact page to sign-up for email updates about my Grand Reopening and my newest creation: Mike's Hot Rub!

Yours truly,​
