I have begun to narrow the field down on the flavor profile issue. I want and desire to reach a plateu of consistency. This means that I want to be using the same rub and technique all the time so that my BBQ is easily recognizalbe by the folks I am feeding.

There is nothing wrong with trying different products or resturants. Nothing at all. I do the same from time to time, but when it comes to serious Q'ng, I want my Q to be the same every time.

I understand what your saying Cliff. But I am just a home cook that basically cooks and Ques for myself. I like to try different spice combinations and different rubs so I might can make something similar myself with a twist.

I have only been truly BBQ'in since June. Though have been grilling for years.

As the years pass and I get more into the seriousness ( and I know I will ) my attitude about consistency will definately change.

Once again, I do understand. Just looking for a few new rubs.

This question gets asked alot in different forms and the answers are as varied as the myriad of rubs out there Jason. Two rubs that i use all the time are Jamaican Firewalk and Yardbird. I would get only about a max of 6 rubs to try and go from there. Just my .02

While you are at it, give Big Brother Smoke a PM. You will not be dissapointed with his rubs and sauces. Took 8th in ribs and 15th in brisket using his rubs and sauce this past weekend. They are awesome products!

What? No credit given to the photographer? Just kidding, Dave. Nice job on the first place. I've used both Yardbird and Ddog's, can't go wrong with either.

Don't forget Brother Larry Wolf. He has a good following with his seasonings as well.

I have been tweaking my own rubs for some time now will continue to do so until I reach nirvana. However I do buy commercial rubs to make my life easier and to support my fellow brethern. I feel the best way is to keep buying different ones in small bottles to experiment with and if you dont like one just toss it in the back of your cabinet. That is where most of them wind up in my house, really chaps the wife but I tell her it is all in research for the ultimate Q. She just rolls her eyes now when the UPS driver shows up with more bbq related items

Simply Marvelous - Sweet & Spicy
Spicewine - Heffer Dust
Plowboys - Yardbird
D-Dogs - Apple, Maple
John Henry's - Pecan, Apple

Man, can I relate to that! Esp. since my wife is a.....vegetarian. "My gosh! How much more of that do you need???? Isn't it just about all the same stuff??"

I pity her, really. Imagine, going through life, having no appreciation of the pleasure one gets from pulling off a near perfectly seasoned rack of ribs.....taking that first bite....it's a damn cryin' shame.

I just ordered another 5# batch of Yardbird rub from Hawgeyes, but I use a lot of Spicewines Heffer dust, Gordon's grub rub and Head Country too. It's good to not get stuck in the same old taste pattern I think. If you haven't tried it already, Google up Chris Lilly's 6 time world championship pork rub recipe and try it too.

Are those of us who make and use our own rubs a dying breed?


There's something about relying on other people and/or companies for rubs and sauces that just makes me nervous. I agree wholeheartedly that knowing what is out there is very important but its pretty damn rewarding to win with your own stuff.

Some of the national brands are pretty good (McCormick, Emeril, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Stubbs, Weber, Durkee, Lawry's, etc.).

If I could make a better sauce than Blues Hog... I would. Until then, I'm ridin' the Hog!

I agree with you Vince, if the company goes out I have to go back to the drawing board. But, if I don't support them what next???

Like you, I have and do make my own rubs and sauces. However I found a couple that I like a lot and it is just one less thing I have to worry about.

I know you have been kicking butt with your rubs and sauce, maybe I need a sample and I can help support you too

Good luck at the Jack and I will see you at Buckeye.
