Default July 3rd Rib Rub Experiment

I started out with four racks of STL spares, four rubs and two sauces. Time for a little impromptu experiment

Here are the contestants...



Racks rubbed from left to right, Stumpy's, my own, River Town and Blues Hog.


All the kids are in the pool plus some scooby snack trimmings for man, dog and today's beans.



Getting some good pullback. Trimmings are panned and wrapped. Rack #4 is off the smoker for maintenance/more rub.



Ding, ribs are 'done" and ready to wrap for transport. A little sauce will be grilled on in about 2 hours...no pics of that or a plate up darn it


In the end, Blues Hog rub plus SBR sauce was the chosen winner.

I've been using my own rib rub but have wanted to try blues hog.
Nice looking ribs.

I used all cherry for this smoke...next time I'll throw in a little hickory along with the cherry. I use BH sauce quite often but since I already had the sweet sauce covered with the SBR I wanted to lay off the mega-sweet BH sauce. Good luck on your smoke today!
