Plowboys BBQ Yardbird Rub - by courtesy of fellow brethren QansasjayhawQ
Look what I got by parcel post from the U.S.

By courtesy of fellow brethren QansasjayhawQ I now have my very first commercial rub. Thanks a lot for that gift, especially shipping must have been quite pricey.

Now I need some instructions on how to use it, I am very much afraid to waste any of that precious rub.

So poultry or pork? And how less of that rub is enough (because I always tend to over-rub)? Strangely I could not really find any useful info on their website.

My teammate also sells Plowboys and a couple of other Brethren rubs:
It'll probably be cheaper when you order in Holland.:thumb:

Chicken, Pork and fish are all great when moderately rubbed with Plowboys. To conserve on chicken put it under the skin and then Dist the skin. I won some $$ this year with Yardbird on my pork butt and Ribs! Want more heat? Just add a dusting of your goto pepper during the cook on top of the Bird.

There are more on here that have more experience than I do but this will get you started!

Good Luck!

Great job Dave (QansasjayhawQ) He is just one of the really great guys here in the Brethren. :thumb:

Yardbird is the best all purpose rub. Just go easy as it is salty. You will love it and soon be buying it in the 5 lb. bag.

Man, I envy you. I have traveled the world over and Austria is the most beautiful country that I have ever been to. I definitely plan to return some day.

In my opinion, you don't need to use a lot.

Excellent advice with regard to using it on chicken. I also like to use it on whole beer can chicken and sprinkle some inside the body cavity.

It's really an excellent all-around rub. It has a well balanced flavor. I've even used it on brisket and it tasted awesome.

I do think that fruit woods are more compatible with Plowboys Yardbird. Stronger flavors like hickory kind of begin to overpower the rub.

Anyway - enjoy it! Cheers!

I have used YardBird (and Bovine Bold/The Jerk/Fin and Feathers) for several years.
Strictly my preference, but I cut YardBird with Turbinado Sugar somewhere between 20/80 to 50/50, depending on what I am cooking.
It is great just like it is--just a taste thing to me.

Side benefit is that it "stretches" the supply 8).

Great Stuff

I put Yardbird on everything except brisket and ice cream, try it on your eggs in the morning, fantastic rub.

Good choice for a first choice!

All Great advise I love it on chicken and Boston Butts- I usually use a combo of yard bird and simply marvelous on the butt

It is a very good commercial rub. If you put it on chicken though, don't be heavy handed with it, as it is a rub that is on the saltier side.

That all sounds just great, can't wait to give it a first try, although I better use it on a smaller piece of meat first to get the feel of it. :smile:

So here we go, first try of Yardbird on scrambled eggs with Parmesan cheese:

Does this look right to you?

Because my wife did not like it at all! She said, it's like "Maggi Soup Flavoring" (something awkward we never would ever use in any combination) on egg. :twitch:

So I had to eat it all, just scrambled eggs made from six small/medium sized eggs with some grated Parmesan and the Yardbird Rub on top

I thought is was good, but not something to die for. The idea of applying a rub on something else than Qing product is completely new to me, but I am certainly up to some more experiments. :smile:
