Default Best rubs available at Bass Pro?

I have a $50 gift certificate from Bass Pro and I'm in need of some good rub. I see they carry Plowboys Bovine and Yardbird, Lotta Bull, and Three Little Pigs.

Is the Yardbird specifically for chicken?
I need something that will cover beef, pork, and chicken (I don't mind buying 2 different rubs).

Here's the link, please advise - thanks!

I used yardbird on chicken tonight and I used it on 2 pork shoulders yesterday. Both were great. Buy it, you'll be glad you did. I loves me some yardbird! I've never used it on beef, I personally wouldn't either

I was just at the Bass Pro Shop in Denver today. The 14oz Plowboys were 9.99. Also picked up some Todd's Dirt. It was 4.99 for the 3.5 oz size.

I would buy:
Yardbird for chicken, pork.
Bovine bold for beef.

Yardbird, bovine bold, and fin and feather are all must haves for me.

Never tried The Jerk b/c I'm not that into jamaican jerk, but I hear its good.

I use the Yardbird as a base on pork butt and then put SGH over that.

You can use yardbird on pork, chicken and beef. I've done briskets with it and they turn out great. Bovine bold is fantastic also on brisket, burgers, chuck roasts and I've used it on chicken and pork.

The three little pigs championship rub is great. I used it on my Pork Butts. I, unlike everyone else, am not as big of a fan of the Yardbird. I used it on some ribs and was not impressed. I think I have to give it a second chance at some point in time, but for now I like the three little pigs stuff.
