Uncle Jack's Sea Salt Rubs


Uncle Jack’s Sea Salt Rubs

Tasty flakes of hand harvested sea salt mixed with spicy bits for fish, fowl and big game!

Uncle Jack was a big man…let’s start with that.  At 6’-4” and pushing 260, hands the size of dinner plates and Popeye arms to match…he didn’t get that way by skipping meals. He liked to eat…and he mostly liked to eat things that tasted good. In the early days he made his living almost exclusively by working the bay. For the table, that meant lots of black ducks, geese, brant, striped bass, scallops and oysters in the fall and winter. During the summer months, he worked on the Dolphin II, a charter boat out of his hometown, Beach Haven, NJ. So, in addition to lots of clams, blue crab, and oysters…bluefish, weakfish, and some tuna made it to the table. Sometimes, folks from the mainland would show up unannounced and drop off an occasional Pine Barons whitetail deer, a hind quarter of black bear or a few snapping turtles. Everything was fair game and appreciated.

I think it was during those early years with access to this variety of meats that got him foolin’ around making “decorations”, as he used to say, for spicing up his meals from the bay and the marsh.

To be honest, I have no clue what he cobbled together in those decorations to make everything taste so good. But I do know two people that know a thing or two about a thing or three when it comes to cooking wild things with fins, feathers and fur attached. My wife Victoria…and Dave Burris of Henlopen Sea Salt Company. Put ‘em together and stand back cuz Emeril Lagasse’s got nuttin on these two. So, in honor of Uncle Jack, and how just for fun, he would rub salt in my self-inflicted wounds…I present you Uncle Jack’s Sea Salt Rubs!

The Art of Concealment

Aside from your decoy rigs, shells and a shotgun that aims right and won’t jam…our Leather Wrapped Marsh Flask is a required essential for complementing a full day on the saltmarsh.

And as your garvey skims its way home across the bay, the wind in your face, your beverage of choice keeps neatly concealed in this stainless-steel bunker of a flask, with a durable, duck-boat-drab matte finish. And just out of borrowing distance it stays from those pesky companions who never bring anything nice to share. But you, you will be generous, and you will be kind.

You’ll offer a taste to all, and when they light up with glee, you can say with a smile: “Oh, sorry, it’s all gone...I was just wondering if you wanted some.”

Bastard! they’ll say.
