Default blues_n_cues rub taste test on chops w/pasta PRON!

A week or so ago brother blues_n_cues offered a sample of his newly developed rub to those of us who cared to taste it. Not being one to pass up a freebie (read four teenage boys cost a bunch to feed) and always wanting to know what is available, I PM'd him and said "send it on".

I thawed a package of a dozen chops and had just enough of the sample to evenly distribute a coating over them. I used the Platinum with RO and a small piece each of Pecan and Mesquite (seldom use mesquite). The rub is, I believe, a brown sugar based rub with a bit of heat as an after-taste. The kids and I enjoyed it, but the wife said the after-taste was "funny". I suspect this would go better on a long cook, such as ribs or brisket, than on a grill meal, BUT, like I said, we males enjoyed it just fine. Will I buy it when available? You bet!

I cooked up some Pasta-Roni Butter and Garlic stuff, and sprinkled Todd's Dirt over it. Made for a good side dish...

I opened up a three year old present of another butcher block set of knives, as I delegated the "old" ones to the Motor Home this week when we went back to Flagstaff to beat the heat. I included a pic of a few of the knives just for the heck of it. They are made by Hampton Forge and are fairly well made for the cost of them. Who am I to complain, they were a gift! Thanks for stopping in, enjoy the pron!

Wow, those chops are making me hungry again. Nice pics for sure. I especially like the one where everyone is thinking, "I'm glad mom doesn't make us pose with dinner before every meal." Lol, that's my favorite one.

Those knives look comfortable.

I like how everyone else had a side of apple sauce, and you had a side of another chop. You think like I do.

Nice looking grub and family.

It will take mine longer to go from either local airport JFK or LGA,(assuming it came to NY by air)
to get to me than it took to develop the rub !!
Hoping it comes today

Nice looking chops

i use it on pork but it should be good on chix too.i haven't tried it on beef. also,to me it tastes a bit salty out of the jar but it loses that in the cook. i spritz w/ a mix of apple,cranberry,& lemon.
