I've been reading the various rub recommendations on here and Simply Marvelous and Plowboys seem to get the most props. I just ordered the 5 pack of SM as well as Yardbird and Bovine Bold. I even got the 10% "brethren" discount.

Anyways, really looking forward to trying a bunch of new rubs and kicking my flavors up a notch!

All of the SM rubs are good. My least favorite is the pecan. Just has a weird flavor profile. I've only used it on some pork. It was still good, but not one of my favorites.
The cherry, sweet and spicy and the season all are my favorites. The apple is pretty good too.

I don't think you will be disappointed.

The pecan is great with beef. Try it as a seasoning in your meat mixture next time you make meatballs. It's pretty farking phenomenal.

Last year I used SM and Plowboy products on two of my comp meat entries and walked in both of them. Meats that I had not walked in previously. YMMV.

Oh yea you'll like them. I always made my homemade rubs for a long time and was satisfied with them and I'm still satisfied with them but a couple of weeks ago I orderd some Simply Marvelous Cherry rub and some Plowboys Yardbird rub.

Both are so good I find myself sprinkling some in the palm of my hand and licking it up.

I even made some cookies sprinkled with the SM Cherry rub and ate almost all of them.

Thanks for your candor! I am contemplating a slight modification to the pecan rub (more sweetness). We will see, I do like it as is, but I am striving for perfection! :thumb:

I like the pecan and keep a shaker around. But, tastes are different for everyone.

Maybe a little more sweetness would be good. I think I will try it in some meatballs and on some ribs. maybe this weekend if I can find some on sale. BB's are almost $5/lb around here. More than I want to pay. Even spares are in the $3.50-4 range.

Big Bro, out of all of the rubs I have used, SM is in the top three. I will definitely order more when needed.

Trying some new rubs is always a good thing :thumb:

Also, I have been wanting to post a BOGO on this forum but have not received an approval from the moderators.

Big Rons rubs are good too. They were some of the first rubs I purchased.

I find them to be amazing. Best rub on pork. I will be making some ribs this weekend and will be using spicy apple and blues hog. I think they will turn out just fine :)

I bought the 5 pack and I love all of them! Season all goes really well with poultry. I am doing ribs this weekend and am trying to decide which one to use. I love them and I think you will too.

What do y'all think about Dizzy Pig's stuff compared to SM?

We just did a bunch of tri-tip and a pork rib roast with the sweet and spicey rub and I gotta say it was fantastic. I usually only use a montreal season on tri-tip , but I love the sweet and spicey now.

Big props to the guys at SM for quick shipping. I left a message in the comment field when I ordered b/c I knew we had people coming over Saturday. Sure enough, the delivery arrived yesterday afternoon - just in time for me to prep 3 beer butt chickens.

The chickens were a big hit. I injected them with Mojo and rubbed 1 each with SM cherry, SM spicy apple, and Yardbird. All were awesome. I think the SM cherry might have been the best. Really cool rub.

Plenty of comments like "I don't even like chicken, but these are awesome." Thanks again to everyone for the recommendations and to the folks at simply marvelous for quick shipping and an excellent product.

I have been using Plowboys and Simply Marvelous products for quite a while now and heartliy endorse both brands. Without equal, Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple Rub is my "go to" for Ribs as well as Butts, every time! Yardbird by Plowboys falls into the same category for Chicken.

I just ordered the SM apple and and sweet and spicy. They are both excellent, but spicier than I expected, which I love. My question is about using them for comps... I've got one coming up in a couple of weeks that's just ribs and butt. Which would you recommend? (I also got some yardbird rub). Thanks!

You will NOT be dissapointed in either SM or Plowboys. Good choices either way.

I used the SM Season All last week on scallops......farkin perfect man!
I've done the Season All on fries too (per chambersuac's recommendation).
Spicy Apple is crazy good on pork chops.
SM Cherry is great on butts.

I REALLY like Plowboy's Yardbird on chicken, although the SM ain't nothin to sneeze at! I've only had 1 shaker of the Bovine Bold, but it was great on steaks, brisket....think I did it on chuck steak too once.



Hell.......they're all incredible.
You'll see.....:thumb:

About the Sweet and Spicy I will say this: My wife (Redhot on the forum) sneaks a palm full occasionally and just eats it. By itself. She likes it THAT much.:thumb::thumb:

I've used the yardbird before,And love it. I just restocked at the same time I ordered the SM rubs.

Use away, the apple is spicier on the tongue than on meat. I think you should do a practice cook anyway:thumb:
