What is an Americana Blues band doing selling a barbecue spice rub?
Well, let us tell you. It all started when The Deltaz, brothers John and Ted Siegel were kids. Their father and uncle ran a barbecue restaurant in southern California. The boys grew up watching their uncle Andy cooking up some tasty barbecue not just in the restaurant but at every major family event. By the time Ted was 10 he was standing next to his uncle at the grill learning all the family secrets about barbecue. As Ted got older his fascination for barbecue grew. He was told stories as a kid about trips his uncle and father took around the country looking for the perfect barbecue meal.
When Ted and John’s band The Deltaz hit the road for the first time in 2012 touring all over the country they were given the chance to stop in every major city for a show and some barbecue. Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina and even Central California, you name it, The Deltaz sampled all the best American barbecue our country has to offer. All along the way Ted collected barbecue rubs. By the end of five years of touring Ted had rubs from every major barbecue restaurant in the country.
It was a never ending source of fascination for Ted, try out the new rub he had gotten on the road on his favorite cuts of backyard smoked barbecue. But when it came time for Ted to make his own rub he threw them all together! A little coarse ground black pepper from the brisket belt of East Texas, paprika and celery salt from dry rub West Tennessee and of course some secrets he learned from Central California style barbecue with his uncle Andy.
And oh my! You got yourself some Deltaz Rub. There’s no sugar in Deltaz Rub! There’s no anti caking agents or preservatives in Deltaz Rub! But there a whole lot of love and barbecue tradition in Deltaz Rub.
After a couple of backyard barbecues people started asking if they could take home Ted’s Deltaz Rub, so he started bottling it and selling it at The Deltaz performances. Now Deltaz Rub is in stores all over the country. Made with the finest ingredients in Middle Tennessee based in Leipers Fork, TN. So throw on a Deltaz album and make it a “Thrill To Grill” with Deltaz Rub, BBQ Rub and Seasoning.
