We have discovered that this summer our El Toro really rivaled our #1 seasoning, Signature Classic. We received a lot of great feedback about the habanero flavor and how we didn’t make it that “hot” that you can’t taste your food. We didn’t want our seasonings to over power what you are going to eat. This’s is a great time to pick up some and don’t forget to use out coupon code”NJBBQ15″ for 15% off your entire order! Happy Fall!

Year of the habanero?

habaneroHave you tried our El Toro?

We truly believe this year is the “Year of the habanero!” With all the searches that are being done on the web for habanero (s), how could it not be? Right before the holidays, Above the Coals started to produce a very tasty seasoning called El Toro. This is our version of the habanero based seasoning that we are starting with. This seasoning has a full amount of flavor with hints of sweetness and a touch of salt without sacrificing the flavor of your food.

A small percentage of tasters were asking for “more heat” and Above the Coals decided to ramp up the amount that we use in each handcrafted batch. We decided this brand would be called “Lavanero.” This seasoning has 50% more habanero used in it.

Both are available on our Square Marketplace site and here on with a 20% discount by using “love20” at checkout. 

Warm up with some seasoning that packs either a little heat, or a lot! Get some today!
