Rob - The closest store to you who sells our rub is Brees Meats in Garden Grove off Valley View and Chapman. The vertical works good! I put a clay tile on top of the heat deflector and raised the charcoal basket which helped a lot. I am cooking tri-tip and pulled pork tomorrow at Tanaka Farms in Irvine so I'll plug it into the trailer hitch and take her with!
