Default Can any of you recommend me any good rubs?

Just from what I have seen I am already leaning towards Simply Marvelous Sweet and Spicy rub, but I know they make a few other flavors I was hoping you could recommend. I will take any and all suggestion so please let me know. By the way I would prefer to buy a rub that is good with all types of meat.

Thanks a lot,

Nick

Do your research and try several until you find one that satisfies your taste buds.

I have been hooked on Willingham's rub for a LONG time, both for ribs and chicken.

I use several rubs as regular pantry items, the Simply Marvelous is one of them, as it the cherry version. I also use Todd's Dirt for all manner of things, there is nothing quite like it. I use Plowboy's but, I do not like the Yardbird on beef, I prefer the Bovine Bold, and I prefer the Yardbird of chicken and pork. I also use The Rub Co. Santa Maria for everything, although I have been out of late. Then there is Dizzy Dust salt free, which is good if you have a lower salt tolerance. Go with any of these

Simply Marvelous Sweet and Spicy is good on just about any meat. Plowboys Yardbird, too...although Bovine Bold is made for beef, Yardbird works well, too.

I have not tried the Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple on beef, yet, but it's great on chicken and pork. Anybody try it on beef yet?

Oh, Todd's Dirt is good, too.

Crap, I'm rambling....

I ordered the 5 pack from Simply Marveous and it is great. I've used the cherry and apple rubs on pork & chicken and they were great. I used the sweet and spicy on a beef shoulder roast and burgers. They were also great. The season all is great too. I've used them on some fries and in the marinade for jerky. All of the SM rubs are great.

Big Rons hint of houston is one of my favorites. I have used it on all types of meat.

Ployboys is also good.

We're still quite new on the block, but getting noticed more and more each day. Tom and Paul's (IAB30 BBQ) RGC at Havasu this past Feb sure didn't hurt any... (they're one of our sponsored teams)

Give us a look if you'd like to try something new. We'll even let you sample all four of our rubs for only one penny plus $3.49 shipping. That amounts to a total of 6 oz. of rub for only $3.50...

You can't go wrong with any of the Simply Marvelous rubs. Steph puts out a top notch product! My cupboard is stocked SM too.

I can vouch for all the one above except D-Dogs. Add to that John Henry rubs if you like it sweet.

We probably use more Plowboy (Bovine Bold, Yardbird, and Jerk) because I went a little crazy and we have about 12 pounds of the stuff!
Don't forget to try your own, too!!

Pretty much what others are saying here. I'm currently using (in no particular order):

Plowboys - Yardbird
Smoking Guns - Hot
The Rub Co. - Anything from Ryan is OFF THE CHAIN!
TXBBQR - Original, #2 Brisket and GC are all Pimp'n. Great stuff!

Going to try the Simply Marvelous product as well. I hear and read nothing but good reviews on his products, so definitely worth a go.
