The Back-Story Behind “Black OPS”
August 6, 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the single deadliest day in SEAL Team Six history. My high school friend, Matt Mason was one of those Team Six members killed in action when the CH-47 Chinook helicopter he was aboard was shot down in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011.
Matt was a fantastic athlete and one of the most genuinely nice guys you’d ever meet. His selfless never quit attitude served him very well as he became a well decorated warrior and protector of this great nation. Many do not know this, but I was nearing the end of testing for a new brisket blend and still unsettled on a name when I was shocked to learn Matt had been killed. His ultimate sacrifice so moved and inspired me that I new I had to dedicate this now legendary brisket rub in his memory. So, this new rub was named “Black Ops” in honor of Matt and the other SEALs lost on that fateful day.
Since Day One, 10% of the profit from the sale of Black OPS goes directly to support Wounded Veterans and their Families.
God Bless our brave men and women of the US Military!
