It's Head Cheese Seriously, I really don't get a cheesy taste/flavor at all from Head Country Rub. I use it almost exclusively on chicken at my place, I think it is in the top 5 of the best rubs available.

Welcome! Never had Head Country, but some of the big boys
use it in major comps.

Aint never picked up on the cheesey flavor of Headcountry either. I use it on everything. Do know it has a lot of dried bell peppa in it. One of its virtues over some rubs is it aint real salty.

Just picked up a bottle of Head Country Rub from my butcher and I know what you're talking about when you say 'cheesy' taste. It's like eating a bag of Cheeto's and you have that cheesy aftertaste. Good questions what might be in there, let us know if you figure it out!

Is this the rub your talking about? I don't know the answer just investigating what is Head Country Rub.

It could be one thing or a combination of things that give it that cheesy flavor. It could be a natural anti clumping ingredient, corn starch or MSG (which I "think" HC has in it). It could also be a very common ingredient that is ground finer than you're used to and it gives it a different texture and flavor.

I haven't had HC in a couple years, but from what I remember it is very good but I don't recall a cheesy flavor.
