Buying Some Rub .. need a little advice
 
Alright Brethren, I have been on this site for almost 3 months and I have heard a lot about this Yardbird seasoning and how good it is.

I must try it now, cant resist any longer.:biggrin:

I was given this link in another thread and there is a lot of stuff on this site I am interested in. A few names that I have heard here also.

Then I noticed that the shipping was fedex ground and I know that Fedex shipping can be pricey. Though ground is cheaper than express. I would assume with the cost of shipping to be in the range of 7-10 bucks, I thought I might as well buy a few more seasonings/ rubs while I'm at it.

I need some recommendations from fellow Brethren that have tried and liked some of these rubs. I cook mostly what everyone else cooks and heat doesnt bother me.

I would truly appreciate any responses..

I am a big fan of Todd's Yardbird, I have been using it for a little while now and it is my go to spice at home and comps. In fact, we just took 1st in pork (our first 1st place in a KCBS event) at the KCBS event in Taylor AZ using Yardbird as our rub and finished 10th overall. We now have 7 events under our belts. Todd was nice enough to post our picture on his website www.Plowboysbbq.com with the story.

I order it at 5 or 10 lbs at a time, so I contact Todd directly. I am waiting for the brisket rub to come in. I can not wait. He makes really good stuff.

I also use some of D dogs rubs for steaks at home. I like the maple, but the original and Apple are good too. D Dog can be found in the Brethern Ventures, as well as Todd under Plowboys.

D-Dog's are good, the HomeBBQ rubs are good and the Dizzy Pig rubs are good.

Why not make or steal your own? I know this is gonna anger the "rub Gurus" but when you start buying rubs you will never learn what spices do.

You see what your asking these guys to do is SUBJECTIVELY give you their opinion of what appeals to their palate. Which makes even less since than figuring that out for yourself. Finding a recipe online or on here and trying it accomplishes the same thing with a lot less money and a lot less rubs you don't like sitting round and going bad.

Heck I think I screwed up and posted my Butt Glitter on here in a weak moment. LOL

I gotcha Funk brother, but I am very interested in the Yardbird. I make my own rib rubs and everything I cook is from scratch. True home cookin'. So I do understand the concept of making your own. I have my spices sent in bulk from Buckhorn Spices in my hometown of Pine Bluff. I have a lot.

But one thing I have learned. If you do not eat any other food besides your own, ( restaurants, other peoples food period) your desire for new will dwindle and you will be basically cooking the same way with the same ole spices. Trying different things is a break from the norm and also an inspiration.

I also would be supporting a fellow Brother on this site so cost is not that big of a deal.

Then it sound like your making a sound decision. Hell for 12 years I ground my own spice, even got to where I would roll the peppercorns with a roller to get the frit just right.

Then one day someone passed me Montreal Steal seasoning and damn if it was not to the "T" LOL

But discovering what blend of spices gets you the crispiest bbq chick skin (technique has something to do with it too) is serendipity

You can purchase BBQ rub and steak seasoning from my website - www.smokinrub.com. Have been in business for a month or so and have already sold several bottles of each.

I have a different take on this statement.

First, while I was searching for great Q and learning how to make it better at home via all the fourms, I began to realize that I could produce a better product than most resturants. So then I started searching for the best rubs and techniques that I liked.

I have begun to narrow the field down on the flavor profile issue. I want and desire to reach a plateu of consistency. This means that I want to be using the same rub and technique all the time so that my BBQ is easily recognizalbe by the folks I am feeding.

There is nothing wrong with trying different products or resturants. Nothing at all. I do the same from time to time, but when it comes to serious Q'ng, I want my Q to be the same every time.

Slabs, Plowboy's, Smokin Guns, Head Country,and one of my longtime favorites,Obie-Cue from Texas. All are exellent products with great people behind them. Call any of them and you'll be happy. Steve.
