Default Total Overhaul

Well we have been doing this for 2 years (7 contests) and the best we have done was 5th overall at Merrimack. Up until now we have made all of our sauces and rubs except the FAB prodects. It certainly appears that we absolutely suck at doing so. From now on we are going to use commercial sauces and rubs. We are going to swallow our pride and admit we will never win with our own stuff. I just spent a small fortune on commercial rubs and sauces. As soon as us Polocks get this stuff sorted out, watch out gentlemen.

I have made my own sauces but realized long ago that there are widely accepted sauces out there, therefore why buck the system, plus it's a lot of work and time and money making your own.

Guy: Let me know if I can help. It may save you another year of hit and miss on matching the sauce to the rub.

Jay,
I did buy your rubs a few weeks ago but unfortunately when I went to test them Guy had eaten them with a spoon!!??? I guess he really liked the flavor. Looks like I am in need of reordering them.

Jay's got a good point... You can have a great rub and a great sauce but they might not compliment each other.

I guess the little Spicebox will be busy this fall and winter !!!

I remember the day Sean and I cooked about 12 racks of ribs using 6 different rubs and 2-3 sauces before we began competing to try out a lot of products I bought online. Everything was going great until the hot spot on the Pitts & Spitts stickburner was cranking too much and we rotated the ribs but forgot to keep track of positions. At the end of the cook, we knew which ribs tasted best, but could not pinpoint which rub/sauce combo we used for certain. By the fifth rib sample they all tasted the same anyway.

Looking back, I blew a lot of cash on all those products, but it was fun. I don't use any of them in contests anylonger but some are still my favorites for home use.

Vinny,

We tried simplifing our rubs but even I can tell they are not right. We are happy with the way we are cooking things and we attribute that to the Spicewine. Man she purrs like a kitten. Our flavors are way out in left field. I have a freezer in the garage that is full of stuff to experiment with. We were doing to do exhaustive testing but maybe Jay can help us get to where we need to be. Jay, thank you for the offer of help. We will be ordering another Spicewine round about November time frame. The large is a little too big to haul around in our Battlewagon. I can't hardly wait.

Don't know yet. Maybe.....Maybe not. Lets see what November brings. If I do decide to sell it I will give you first shot. It's really up to the wife. She loves cooking on the large.

dont do it. Sure I've never won any thing either, but there is some personal pride involved here. Stick to your guns.

Then again, maybe in another year I'll be steaming the labels off of a cattlemens bottle.

The Q that you cooked on your large Spicewine for me at Dr. BBQ was superb. My wife remarked that this was your best to date... due to Dr. BBQ and your cooking on a great Spicewine. If you decide to give it a new home where it will be really appreciated, please let me know.

Yours in BBQ,

Cliff

just be careful to make sure your product isnt a clone of everyone elses also, 5th place after two seasons is nothing to ashamed of, i would experiment with both yours and commerical or perhaps a mixture of them both, keep notes it helps, also practice tasteing on one product per weekend.. its less confusing ..
