Im not sold on anything in his book or his rubs. His chicken rub is gross. I have been trying his "Whistler Burger" that he claims won some comp for best burger. My opinion, the burger is nasty. Ive tried it with several different rubs. Same result. Its disgusting. Fudruckers is better. Im starting to think hes never even made anything in the book and these are recipes he just pulled out of the air to some degree.
I may try some of his techniques, but Im done with his homemade rubs and marinades.
