The cookers are designed in the dome shaped fashion that we often see in ancient civilizations.

When the guys at The Big Green Egg company decided that it was time to create a line of spices that would be worthy of their amazing cookers they turned to a company in Virginia.

I had a chance to try the Simply Zensational Spice and it was really, really, good. Even though our grilling season is over, this will still be a staple in my kitchen. It works very well on chicken, veggies, pork, and seafood. It has a little bit of kick and a little bit of sweet working with the other spices for a unique and delicious flavor.
The spices come in a huge 12.4 oz shaker/spoonable container. I am looking forward to trying more flavors!
