Wet Rubz was carefully crafted by Watsonville, California-based chef and organic farm sales agent, Andy Martin and his wife Aimee, who wanted to share their passion for creating a definitive top-shelf, all-natural grilling marinade containing absolutely no artificial ingredients. Born from their time-honored, family ranch recipes in the garlic capital of the world in Gilroy, California and now located a stone’s throw from America’s “Salad Bowl” in Salinas, California, the Martins have now perfected their premier go-to marinade line celebrated as a local favorite and revered amongst home cooks, butcher shops, fanatical foodies, and BBQ grill masters. Their devotion to innovation and environmental stewardship are what makes Wet Rubz leaders in sustainable culinary perfection and they can now be found on grocery shelves throughout California.
