Default The Wife's Rub Selection

Been busy as all heck all-day, and unable to read the threads or post, but I had to post this.

In my strategy to involve her more into BBQ, I insisted on using an injection AND rub on tomorrow's brisket.

She heemed and hawed about it, and finally agreed.

So I did give her one consolation: I agreed to let her choose the rub.

I happen to have 5 different company's rubs on had, and with 2 of them, I had at least 2 varieties of the types they make.

Example... if we were talking Myron's, you might have a bottle of his hickory, and a bottle of his regular.

So, as I said, I had 5 different company's rubs, and with 2 of those companies, I had at least 2 different varieties.

All in all, she had 11 different rubs to choose from. The only one I normally keep on hand, but happen to be out of, is Brother Dan's (3-EYEZ) rub.

After perusing all 11, she made her selection.

Her favorite: she choose Simply Marvelous Cherry rub

Disclaimer: I don't know how official any of this is... except in our house, that is.

That is my wife's favorite rub too. I am partial to anything made by SM, Oakridge or the Rub Co.

My wife is a big fan of SM Cherry. Heck, I am too!

Haven't tried it on a brisket yet though.

You only fail if you do not try.

I even throw SM Cherry on a ribeye. Makes for a great steak.
