Must try rubs?
 
I am cooking a lot more these days. What do you guys consider to be some must try rubs for ribs, chicken, and brisket.

Yeah, I know it is subjective, but there is a crazy amount of choices.

On the whole, I am not into the idea of heat. I'm in S. Louisiana and the heat card gets played to death. Cajun this and cajun that. It's overdone for my tastes in a rub, I'll add heat with a sauce if I want it.

I am looking for balance, but am partial to the sweet side. But, I suppose I can achieve that extra sweetness with honey towards the end of the cook.

For chicken - Plowboys Yardbird Rub

Along with any of Plowboy's and Spicewine's rubs, check John Henry out. The one's I've tried have good flavor and a lot of them come out sweet too.

Amen to that:-P Being for SW Louisiana myself people figure if they add enough heat and make you sweat it's true Cajun cooking:-D

I agree with the above.

Heat has it's place but it should be for the flavor. The minute heat starts wipping out the other flavors is when I start looking for some thing else!

Plowboys Yardbird Rub on Chicken and it's amazing on wings as well as boneless pork chops.

Arthur D 06-04-2009 05:04 PM

Oh, I have my eye on the Plowboy's Yardbird for sure. Spicewine too.

There is too much good talk about it for it to be a bad choice.

I've been cutting the backbone out of whole birds and smoking 'em flat lately. The kids go crazy over it. Picky eaters are cleaning their plate. Can't wait to try it with yard bird. It is so darn easy this way.

For brisket, and any beef I really like Slabs Wow Up Your Cow. For anything else I make my own.

So many great recipes to try, I'm done buying any rubs or sauces, but will buy a book or two,three,four................and make my own.

I am gonna order some Plowboys as I hear great things about them..I am done making my own rubs..mine are good and all, but I am missing "something" in them...

Uncle Ernies beef rub and Uncle ernies chicken and pork rub are excellent. BBQ.com has a great products as well.

Skidder 06-04-2009 07:15 PM

I say make your own. Take a basic rub and twist it to your liking. It ain't hard to do. If it's to hot take the heat out, if it's to sweet take the sugar out etc. Whole lot cheaper too.

Fat Guy 06-04-2009 07:35 PM

Go to spicebarn.com. You can find that special ingrediant to make your rub just right. I have an allpurpose rub that I liked alot. Then found beer extract powder, added a touch of that and now it is what I aways wanted it to be. I don't buy premade rubs. I go to my spice cuboard and just mix and taste. I do sometimes take a rub from a book and tweek it. I like sweet with ribs and sometimes heat, so I have 4 differnt rubs just for ribs. I like a savory flavor with beef. So I have 3 rubs for beef. Chicken is so universal that I use just about any of the 16 or so rubs I have on hand, that I made.:shock: I hope this helps.:-D
