I just did 18.5lbs of butt with Bad Byron's this weekend and it turned out great. But my go-to for ribs and butts is Plowboys Yardbird -

Big Ron's original, or Hint of Houston, Yardbird and Williams Rib Tickler are all good ones.

"Best" is a big word. I dont know if there is such a thing

I just bought a few, tried Rib Tickler and Simply Marvelous Sweet Seduction side by side on 2 half slabs, as I am looking for something milder for my wife.

Both were great. Very very happy with them...the best thing was I think they are very well balanced, no one dominating flavor like some rubs have

And I also tried Blues Hog sauce for the first time, it was great as well!!!

I also bought Big Poppas Money and Plowboys Yardbird, I will get to those soon!!!

not to be snarky, honestly, but do a search...you'll find many, many, many, many, many, many suggestions for rubs.

personally, i use oakridge secret weapon, smoking guns hot, salt and pepper, williams rib tickler, wicked, rub co., simply marvelous, plowboys, etc., etc., etc.,....you see where i'm going with this. ;)

there are so many, there is no "best". just whatya like.

Go here: https://www.bigpoppasmokers.com/rubs

If you spend more than $40, the shipping is free.
If you choose wisely, you'll end up with a half dozen types for less than $50.

I have a closet full of about 20 different commercial rubs. My wife and I do not agree on which is the best. And my friends prefer a third different rub.

I'll be the odd man out and say that in five minutes, you can mix up something yourself that is as good or better than most of the commercial rubs at a fraction of the cost. Most of them are very similar, anyway. Do a search for Pitmaster T's butt glitter for starters. Good stuff, and you can adapt it to suit yourself if you want to.

Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Although Mrs. Dash isn't bad either.

I can't pick just "one".

True, but the question was about commercial rubs.

Bigbux... There are a lot of Brothers who sell rubs. I've tried most of them and haven't found a bad one yet.Take a look at the Brethren Ventures section of the forum and you'll find a bunch of them listed. There are also Brothers who own BBQ supply businesses who sell a lot of rubs from Brethren owned businesses. I'm not going to try to list them all because I'll forget someone, and that isn't fair.

I will say that my go to rubs for ribs and butts are Plowboy's BBQ Yardbird and Simply Marvelous Cherry.
