Lillie’s of Charleston artfully weaves the magic of spice & fire to create flavorful spice blends. Our “SweetSmoke” spice rub works great on pork ribs, Boston butts, hams and pork shoulder steaks. Just sprinkle liberally on any of these cuts and let sit for at least 4 hours (overnight is best) and then just smoke or grill as usual. Our blend of spices will create great flavor for your favorite items. Also try it on chicken or wings for a sweet and smoky flavor profile!
It all began in the early 1950s in Charleston, South Carolina with Dad and Grandma cooking in the kitchen. Summers spent in the kitchen with Grandma’s sister, Aunt Lillie, is where he honed his cooking skills. No matter who came to visit, they never left her house feeling unwanted, unloved, or hungry. This was the birth of our company slogan. As I was growing up, my father owned a restaurant in downtown Charleston called The Rib Shack. During the summers, my sister and I helped and witnessed Daddy giving his sauce away to customers taking food home. This was the birth of our family bottling the sauces, now Lillie’s of Charleston.
