Mad Hunky Meats
Hand Crafted BBQ Rubs, Meat & Poultry Brines, Hot Wing Mixes!
When I was a kid, my grandparents,(half from the “Old Countries” of Hungary and Italy) used to live in the Rouge/Oakwood areas of Detroit. Being there put them in close proximity of the old style ethnic markets, notably Gonnella’s and the Delray Market. Oh, and Al’s Cafe’ and Major’s restaurants among many others.
Going into those places is an experience I remember to this day. The sights and smells….ahhh! Olives in barrels, Sausages hung over counters, sawdust on the floor, the gossip and information that was given and taken freely… those days are over.
Mad Hunky Meats aim is to capture some of those flavors and aromas from “the old way” of food preparation. We use natural ingredients, and do not force or rush cures or aging processes required to get that authentic taste so rarely found in this age of fast food. I’ll admit… the food goes fast, but the making of it is slooowww…
The Hungarians and Italians have some of the best meat products in the world, salamis, sausages, hams, etc. Try some of ours and discover how they were meant to taste…
Done in the loving memory of my parents, grandparents, and the food they made that was sooo darn good!
mikev - 09/07/2012 This is my "go to" rub now that I've found it. It goes great on just about everything. Well, I have to correct that... I haven't found anything yet I don't like it on. From brisket, to spare ribs, to scrambled eggs, to pasta salad. Great balance of flavors and really perks up whatever you put it on.mikev
Alan D 09/12/2012 I started out smoking making my own rubs, and it got cost prohibitive for the amount of spices I went through. I bought a couple of commercial rubs that were highly recommended before I tried Mad Hunky, and yours is my favorite by far. I put it on everything -- fish, pork, chicken and its just got a really balanced flavor. I even did a head to head to see what my family thought and they chose Mad Hunky. Great Product!! I just ordered another pound and will be a customer for life.Alan D
Some comments from Bob Ballentyne, Chef D' Cusine for a large professional catering company.... "The rub gives off a real interesting chile and cayenne pepper aroma".... "I really enjoyed testing Richtee's rub and think it is a well balanced rub".... with just enough cayenne pepper to kick it up so you know this is not just an off the shelf rub."....
Vince T from Fla emails..."I have been cooking and smoking for over 20 years at the serious level. I have constantly dabbled with many makers of rub, I have no reservations at all stating that the Hunky rub is one of the most tasty, unique, and satisfying products ever. I keep trying the rub on different meats and cooking styles, and it is superb on everything I try. And the poultry brine? Well, my wife will not allow the preparation of any chicken dinner unless the Hunky brine is used, nuff said."Vince T from Florida emails…
