http://www.iowastatefair.org/media-center/image-library/Whew. Almost four weeks after it ended, we are almost recovered enough to be hungry again, after the fantastic contest judging we got to do at the 2014 Iowa State Fair.

There were so many delicious entries in every contest that AllSpice held this year, and the Spice Rubs and Blends category was no exception.

From chicken to pork to beef, we got to sample dozens of your best recipes for spice blends and rubs.  We’re inspired by your creations!

And now, we’d like you to get inspired, too: all the award-winning recipes from the AllSpice contests have been entered into the AllSpice recipe database, so we can share them with all of you!
