Default Must try rubs?

I am cooking a lot more these days. What do you guys consider to be some must try rubs for ribs, chicken, and brisket.

Yeah, I know it is subjective, but there is a crazy amount of choices.

On the whole, I am not into the idea of heat. I'm in S. Louisiana and the heat card gets played to death. Cajun this and cajun that. It's overdone for my tastes in a rub, I'll add heat with a sauce if I want it.

I am looking for balance, but am partial to the sweet side. But, I suppose I can achieve that extra sweetness with honey towards the end of the cook.

Along with any of Plowboy's and Spicewine's rubs, check John Henry out. The one's I've tried have good flavor and a lot of them come out sweet too.

I agree with the above.

Heat has it's place but it should be for the flavor. The minute heat starts wipping out the other flavors is when I start looking for some thing else!

Oh, I have my eye on the Plowboy's Yardbird for sure. Spicewine too.

There is too much good talk about it for it to be a bad choice.

I've been cutting the backbone out of whole birds and smoking 'em flat lately. The kids go crazy over it. Picky eaters are cleaning their plate. Can't wait to try it with yard bird. It is so darn easy this way.

I say make your own. Take a basic rub and twist it to your liking. It ain't hard to do. If it's to hot take the heat out, if it's to sweet take the sugar out etc. Whole lot cheaper too.

Go to spicebarn.com. You can find that special ingrediant to make your rub just right. I have an allpurpose rub that I liked alot. Then found beer extract powder, added a touch of that and now it is what I aways wanted it to be. I don't buy premade rubs. I go to my spice cuboard and just mix and taste. I do sometimes take a rub from a book and tweek it. I like sweet with ribs and sometimes heat, so I have 4 differnt rubs just for ribs. I like a savory flavor with beef. So I have 3 rubs for beef. Chicken is so universal that I use just about any of the 16 or so rubs I have on hand, that I made. I hope this helps.
