The Service Foods Steak Rub Contest - We Have a Winner!

We asked and you shared! We were truly overwhelmed by the amazing recipes that came in after we announced our exciting Steak Rub Contest. Each one of your family rub recipes was terrific, but we could only pick one winner!

We’re pleased to announce the contest winner is Janet Tharpe of Franklin, TN. Janet wowed us with her “Rub, Sweat & Tears BBQ Rub!” Janet wins an 8” professional chef’s knife, a bamboo cutting board, and a case of 12 steaks of her choice. Plus, her rub will be featured in an upcoming grilling video with Chef Mike! Congratulations, Janet!

Below you’ll find Janet’s winning recipe as well as our first and second runners up. All make excellent rubs on your favorite Service Foods proteins!
