Default Help with Rubs and Sauces

I haven't had experience with rubs at all, and very little with sauces. I know that lots of folks like both to be very hot and spicy. I enjoy hot and spicy, but have health issues that make it dangerous for me to indulge.

Can someone recommend rubs and sauces that are a lot more sweet with just a little bit of the spicy? My stomach sure would thank you for it.

Have you tried Sweet Baby Ray's? You can customize it for your taste, by adding a little cayenne pepper until you reach your comfort level. Any recipe you find here would be good also. Just adjust the seasoning to where you can tolerate it.

Simply Marvelous sweet spicy rub is a good one IMO it is not too spicy if you want even more sweet same company his Sweet Seduction. I myself I don't know of another sweet commercial rub.

If you are looking to make your own rub just make sure the sweet component plays biggest part.

I have seen the SM name bounced around here quite a bit. I think I'd like to try the sweet spicy rub first. I've got a whole set of sweet teeth, but I do long for a little of the spicy, too. Thank you, Eric!

I highly recomend Simply marvelous Cherry and Spicey Apple rubs, I use it on about everything, popcorn, even a bit of the cherry on vanilla Ice cream once...yep...I did.
And Blues Hog for sauce.

Good luck!

Tish,I also recommend SM for rubs...it has enough flavour and not too much salt or pepper in it.

2-tbl brown sugar
4-teas.Worcestershire sauce
2-tbl. honey
1-tbl. molasses
1/2 teas. gran. garlic
pinch or to taste of cayenne

I'm hooked on Big Ron's sauce
http://www.bigronswebsite.com/BigRonsRub.html

it starts off sweet and then has an after burn.

I always recommend Foil Hat Rub, created by our own Bigabyte. He posted the recipe to share with everyone ...

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=103989

I like it on just about everything, even my oatmeal and cup of coffee. It is my favorite and I make about a gallon of it at a time.

Also, for sauce, I also prefer sweet. I will cut Sweet Baby Rays with some sriracha.

I'm also a fan of the Simply Marvelous rubs. You can even buy a sampler that has five different flavors, and the containers hold enough to last you a while. All that I've tried so far have been great. Even the spicy rubs on the list have a touch of bite, but nothing severe at all. And, if you do decide to make it hotter, just add some cayenne.

Tish, with the sweeter rubs and/or sauces, when smoking try as best you can to keep the temperatures under about 265, preferably in the 250 range. Otherwise sugars can burn.

With rubs, I suggest starting with a few over-the-counter ones before you go it alone. Note however that most are loaded with salt. I'm told that Simply Marvelous (above) are a bit lower on sodium than most. Another awesome starter rub would be Plowboy's Yardbird. The rub I make and compete with is similar in flavor to this only with less sodium.

With the sweeter sauces I highly suggest that you use them as a finishing sauce (ala. not grill it on there) and apply after smoking/grilling when hot. As earlier, this will prevent burning those sugars.

A very sweet and somewhat spicy sauce that we use as part of our sauces is Blues Hog Original.

Blues Hog Smokey Mountain sauce is really tasty, and a bit spicier than the original. As far as rubs go, it's hard to beat a good Santa Maria.
