LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) June 05, 2023 -- Beloved actors and comedians, Anthony Anderson and Cedric The Entertainer, announce the launch of their new line of BBQ rubs, AC Barbeque, now available in Walmart stores nationwide. The two grilling enthusiasts meticulously crafted three specialty barbeque seasonings that honor and celebrate the rich flavors of various global culinary traditions and pay homage to the diverse world of barbequing.
Rooted in culture and fueled by community, AC Barbeque is a lifestyle brand that draws on the foundations and principles of Black excellence, family tradition, and bringing people together. The new barbeque seasoning collection is an exciting milestone as it’s the first product launch from Anthony and Cedric’s larger empire of exceptional grilling items and tools within their AC Barbeque Universe. With a vision to elevate the BBQ experience, the two grill masters will also introduce a range of grills, accessories, sauces, apparel, merchandise, and more.
Anthony and Cedric said: “We aim to redefine grilling and inspire backyard cooks and professional pitmasters alike. These finger-licking rubs are only the beginning. We cannot wait to roll out so many more of our products and collection under AC Barbeque - you’re definitely going to want the full package - we say husky and handsome for a reason!”
AC Barbeque’s rubs offer three distinctive flavors, each with its own unique blend of carefully selected ingredients:
- THE MVP (referred to as the “Put Me On Everything!”): It all starts here – the original all-purpose rub made by true originals. Salt and sweet working in perfect harmony. So damn good, your taste buds’ll be doing a two-step with every bite. Made for pork, chicken, beef, fish and whatever else you got going on. Bright and tangy flavor profile that's a bit smoky, a bit fruity, and a whole lotta hot damn.
- LEMON STEPPER: A lemon pepper rub that’s here to turn up and it’s brought the whole crew – lemon, garlic, coriander and thyme. When your cookout needs a little extra kick, this rub doesn’t mess around. Made for fowl, fish, or fixings – make those lighter meats and sides pop like nobody’s business. A bright lemon flavor profile with a hint of garlic and herbs that simply can't be ignored.
- MIDNIGHT SMOKE: Chicken and fish, we love you... but the party doesn’t really get started until the dark meats arrive. Start it right with the rub that’s got just enough spice to make everything nice. When you smell this smoke, you know what’s cooking is gonna be fire. Made for brisket, lamb, pork – made to light up your fav dark cuts. A salty and sweet flavor profile with a black pepper kick that doesn't skimp on the smoke.
To perfect the products and learn all they can about the art form, the two friends head out on a culinary adventure to discover the best techniques, flavors, and traditions for mouthwatering barbeque across America. Along the way, cameras captured the behind-the-scenes and the making of AC Barbeque for the upcoming A&E Network series “Kings of BBQ.” The 10-episode series will premiere this summer and is executive produced by Propagate along with A Bird & A Bear Entertainment and Just a Kid From Compton.
AC Barbeque is now available in over 2,200 Walmart stores nationwide and online at http://www.acbarbeque.com.
