T-Pain is no stranger to collaboration. Throughout his career, he’s worked with everyone from Young Joc to Luke Bryan. Now, he’s using the same approach in the culinary world. The Florida native has reportedly tapped in with James Beard award-winning chef Meherwan Irani to create his own trio of dry wing rubs. Together, the duo has crafted a trio of rubs that offer a “Magic City-worthy [wing] flavor explosion.” As reported by Beth McKibben of Eater, Irani’s Spicewalla brand T-Pain will release the following rubs:
A honey garlic rub made with brown sugar and honey and hints of garlic with kicks of red pepper and cayenne. Irani and T-Pain also say this wing mix is good sprinkled on grilled salmon and roasted sweet potatoes.
A pineapple habanero rub blend that’s tangy with hints of sweet heat from brown sugar and minced jalapeno. Beyond wings, Irani and T-Pain recommend using this mix on grilled steak or stirred into a Bloody Mary.
A Buffalo-style rub made with a smoky and spicy blend of smoked paprika, Kashmiri chilli powder, garlic, onion, and cayenne, offering a slow building heat on the palate. While a solid choice for wings, Irani and T-Pain say to try it on steaks and even as beer rims.
Released just in time for the December holiday season, T-Pain’s custom line of dry rubs will go on sale this Friday for $29.99. Wing connoisseurs can find these items at Spicewalla locations in Ponce City Market and Grove Arcade in North Carolina.
