FRENCH DIP QUESTIONS (Tatonka Dust??)

    I am planning on making a heap of beef for French Dips.  I would normally go straight to SPOG (w/ a little dry mustard), but I just received my first batch of Tatonka Dust & I really want to try it out.

    Will the Tatonka Dust flavor be lost in the au Jus?

    Will the dust turn the au Jus black or gray?

    I was going to use bottom round roasts smoked over hickory or mesquite and whip up a batch of Chef Jimmy's au Jus.  

    Any thoughts on the matter?

    Thanks

    I think that sounds like a great combination! I'm going to have to try that. Maybe on an Eye Round...

    Don,

    The Tatonka Dust is great on French Dips - we love it!!  You won't lose the flavor in the au jus at all - it will enhance it.  Don't be afraid of the dark color, you can apply it a little heavy.

    It will  not turn the au jus black or gray... maybe a little darker brown but not that we have really noticed. 

    Chef Jimmy’s us jus is amazing!!
