We are stepping out and looking to use commercial products for our next contest. Is anyone willing to share what combinations of these different products they are using (Eg: Fab B + Bovine Bold = Brisket)?

Kosmos Q beef injection w/ a combination of The Rub Co. Santa Maria Style and Original. Kosmos enhances the juiciness and beefy flavor of the brisket while those rubs are more on the savory side with flavor profiles that work very well with beef. Worth a walk just about every time.:becky:

A couple of popular combinations are:

Kosmo's Beef and Pork Injections (http://kosmosq.com/store/)along with his Cow Cover rub (for brisket) and Dirty Bird rub (for pork).

Butcher BBQ Beef Injections (http://www.butcherbbq.com/#!injections) in combination with Plowboy's Bovine Bold rub (for brisket) and Yard Bird rub (for pork).

Good luck! :-P

How about Chicken JD - tell me what do you use on your chicken :becky:

Kosmos beef injection + Dixiedust + course ground pepper on Brisket.
Kosmos pork injection + The Slabs Kyle Style rub on Pork
.... Both are good combinations that I've seen do well in the past.

Marinated in white sauce - nice touch - what effect does that have on the skin? Curious, I've never tried it.. I can imagine the mayo base helping crisp the skin up for home chicken, but what does it do for comp chicken?

it ruins the skin.

the meat is marinaded skin removed.

it adds a richness to the meat while tenderizing slightly.

Hey SeriousQue, we happen to sponsor 22 teams on the circuit. They mostly compete in KCBS events, but we do have a few teams who also compete in FBA, NCBS and SCBA sanctioned events. Over the past 10 months of contests, 17 of these teams have managed to amass a current total of 140 Top Ten awards, and that number continues to grow each weekend. Of these awards, 4 are GC's and 3 are RGC's...

To view our team results, click here (https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgtAmMIKiULHdHpCWFZNMHRLa0pDbERvMFVGM2l2a VE&hl=en_US).

So, while I can't tell you what each team uses specifically, I can tell you generally what is working for them...

Injections:
Our teams do very well with Kosmo's, Butcher's and FAB, along with a few who make up their own secret concoctions.

Brines:
A few use a brine on their chicken, but most do not.

Chicken Rub:

Secret Weapon
Game Bird & Chicken


Rib Rub:

Competition Beef & Pork
Secret Weapon
Game Bird & Chicken


Pork Rub:

Secret Weapon
Competition Beef & Pork
Game Bird & Chicken


Brisket Rub:

Competition Beef & Pork
Santa Maria


Hope this helps, and holler with any questions. :thumb:
