    Not really a recipe so posting in general.
    I use salt in my rubs, always have done. I read some people don't and go for a dry brining instead.

    Anyway, I get this in work, only discovered yesterday. Have 2 retail shops in our business and the staff constantly get samples in so here's what I got.

    Going to try it on ribs this weekend and see how it goes.

    In most cases I don't use salt in my rubs, but that salt looks very interesting!

    Curious to see how you like it.

    Used it in ribs last weekend and was great, have 2 pork shoulders salted now so will see how they go.
    Used about 4 tsp on each one and will leave them overnight and rub them tomorrow for cooking Sunday am. It's 6pm now here so 12 hours dry brining.

    Wonder what taste you would get if you used that for dry curing bacon?

    Looks interesting. I'd buy it if I could find it around here. I have used many different salts. You can get some rather exotic salts from Hawaii for instance that are different colors. Black and reds and orange. They do have a taste contrast but really shine during a nice presentation of your meal. I have a hickory smoked salt in my spice cabinet. I will use just a pinch when mixing a rub with it.

    Did it come from the distillery? The wife and I are thinking about taking the ferry over and visiting Ireland. might have to include this distillery on the sightseeing list

    I picked it up in work, could have been a sample but not too sure, I don't work in our retail side at all so don't know :)
