“Bite Back” BBQ Spice Rub

Redfall: Bethesda and Smokey Q Partner for New Bite Back Spice Rub

Bethesda ANZ and Smokey Q, the Australian BBQ and spice experts, have partnered to launch the ‘Bite Back Spice Rub’ in celebration of the release of Arkane Austin’s Redfall.

This delectable spice mix captures the taste of slain vampires — unsure how they know what this tastes like — and includes charcoal powder for a signature Smokey Q taste.

At Bethesda ANZ, we’ve developed quite a taste for creating new and unique ways for fans to experience our award-winning worlds. Partnering with Smokey Q allows us to do this in a new way, packing the spice and punch of Arkane’s Redfall into a sachet perfect for gaming sessions after your next weekend barbecue.

Simon Alty, VP and Managing Director of Bethesda APAC.

Furthermore, the Founder of Smokey Q, Paul Lange, expressed his delight in contributing their BBQ expertise to this partnership and creating a one-of-a-kind experience for fans in Australia and New Zealand, who are known to have a strong affection for a BBQ. He described the exciting challenge of transforming vampire ash from Redfall into a delectable delicacy by incorporating a blend of spices that enhances the flavour of any dish it is added to, making it more “fang-tastic” than ever before.
