I would have to say that they are a bit different. John Henry's Texas chicken Tickler is more of a poultry only rub, with herbs and salt, pepper and garlic based, where Plowboy's YardBird is a bit saltier and a smokier flavor and you could use on other stuff. It depends on what your in the mood for. The JH Texas Pig Rub is great on pork butt, or pork butt steaks, heavier on the sweet side. I have no tried the Bovine Bold on anything, it is the first time trying it. From sampling it, I think it will do well on a chuckie or brisket. Hope that helps a bit, maybe some of the other brethren will give their opinions on this matter.
