Default Best BBQ Rubs

There are many rubs commerically available on the market. What are your favorite for chicken, pork, beef and all-purpose?

Man, that's a can of worms. My favorite commercial rubs for pork include Yardbird, Williams Rib Tickler, and Big Bob Gibsons. For Beef, I like Bovine Bold. For chicken, I like Smokin' Guns, Yardbird, or Cimarron Doc's.

Given the rub czars on the forum I knew I was setting myself up for trouble. But I still thought the question was worthy of being presented especially since it's towards the middle of the week and the pron might be a little slow after the big weekend.

That and I'm shamelessly hoping for a few samples to be sent my way.

Gah, it is impossible to say. I do agree that Simply Marvelous and Plowboy's are exceptional. But, I have not tried enough to say they are the best.

Commerically produced, I like Dizzy Pig products mainly because of the super fresh, high quality & very unique ingredients that get incorporated. I will often use them for general indoor cooking, quick grilling etc. Several get used on the BBQ meats..I recently began using a few as one of the components of my modified version of Donnie's tri-level rub process.

I've tried several Brethen rubs (Spicewine, Plowboys & Simply Marvelous) and those are all excellent as well.

If you buy a subscription, I will be more than happy to send you samples. Just PM me if you do.

This message goes to the first five that accomplish purchasing a subscription

I don't use any otc rubs. They always seem a little... homogenized? generic? I'd probably like some of the rubs from the bretheren if I ever got the chance to try them. They're rubs by REAL BBQ cooks.

The best rub I've found so far is my dynamite rib rub. It's sweet and savory with a little bit of herbyness and a little kick to it. Although I'm definitely biased.

I shudder at the sound of the words "all-purpose rub." For some reason, it sounds contradictory to me. I prefer rubs that are specialized to each type of BBQ- ribs, brisket, pulled pork, etc...
