I hope all my fellow Brethren had an enjoyable holiday weekend-- judging from the threads, it would appear so! I was one of the lucky ones that Ryan from the Rub Co. bestowed some of his magic dust on to try out. I was looking forward to a great weekend, where I was going to smoke and grill to my hearts content... then I got sick. On top of that, I found out that a friend of ours passed away, and I was asked if I could cook for an impromptu gathering of friends. So I threw some chicken, and some ribs in the smoker, one slab in particular using Rub Co's wonderful stuff.
I was not bringing my A game this weekend.... but the ribs were fantastic. Ryan, you have a found a new customer! Everybody raved about how good they were.. So thank you very much, and I look forward to buying your stuff!
Here's some pics from the affair-- again, they might not look that great, but the mind was elsewhere. Thanks for taking time to look.
One slab dusted with the RUB Co rub, the other was just my own generic rub.
Almost ready to pull off.
Again, I know that I could have done a better job documenting the cook, but when you are fighting illness, along with emotions, all I really cared about was just having some good eats.
Thanks for the opportunity Ryan. I appreciate it.
