New All-American Grilling Collection Honors Timeless Legend by
Bringing Authentic Flavor to the Table

ATHENS, GA (June 24, 2013) – (Virtual Press Office) -- Just in time for the grilling season, John Wayne Enterprises, a company that engages in strategic partnerships that associate John Wayne with quality and timeless products, and Fire & Flavor, a leading producer of innovative at-home cooking products, are rolling out a line of all-natural spice rubs and all-natural hardwood charcoal. This collaboration brings forth a new collection of John Wayne Stock & Supply giving consumers the opportunity to grill like a true American legend.

John Wayne spice rubs offer consumers an all-natural way to achieve authentic flavor when cooking outdoors or inside the home kitchen. John Wayne seasonings are made in the United States of America and are crafted for cooking any kind of barbeque from beef and pork to poultry and seafood.

"Our rubs are all-natural, gluten free and kosher, and enhance the flavor of any meat without overpowering it, staying true to the classic outdoor grilling experience," says Davis Knox, President of Fire & Flavor.

The four new rub offerings include the following:

  • Beef spice rub made with espresso, cocoa and chilies
  • Pork spice rub made with paprika, garlic and guajillo chili
  • Chicken spice rub made with cumin, curry and chilies
  • Bar-B-Q spice rub made with ancho chile, garlic and oregano

"Although these rubs are designed to work best on certain meats, they can also complement other types of proteins for a variety of uses," says Knox. "For example, our beef spice rub is also great on pork, and our pork spice rub works nicely on chicken and seafood."

Fire & Flavor suggests consumers brush meat/poultry/seafood with olive oil and then season generously with their desired rub before allowing the meat to rest in the refrigerator for one hour or overnight, so the flavors can permeate the protein. For seafood, consumers should apply the seasoning 15 minutes prior to cooking. The meat/poultry/seafood is then ready to grill, roast or smoke to the home cook's liking.

Made of oak and hickory hardwoods, John Wayne Stock & Supply charcoal is enhanced with burn ridges that utilize an industry-leading technology for quicker lighting. This Burn Ridge technology creates better air-flow and provides more surface area for the charcoal to impart great hardwood flavor. Additionally, because they are briquettes they are able to sustain the long burn times necessary for slow cooking large cuts of pork or beef.

"Our new briquettes provide a grilling experience that is authentic and all-American  – just like John Wayne himself," says Ethan Wayne, president of John Wayne Enterprises

Retailing for $5.99 - $6.99 per 2.3-ounce jar, John Wayne Stock & Supply Seasonings are available for purchase on and select retails stores across the country. All four rubs are also available for purchase in a convenient gift set for $24.95. John Wayne Stock & Supply Charcoal retails for $9.99 per bag and is available for purchase at Kroger and other stores throughout the United States and Canada.
