I am cooking Pork butts, ribs and chicken on July 21st for my wifes graduation party. Want to order some killer rubs from somewhere for the event. What do the Bros recommend? There are going to be some people there that I would like to impress. :twisted:

I'm sure you'll get new responses, but there are also tons of rub recommendation threads.. Try the search option for that as well as checking out the Brethren Ventures section as several Brethren produce and/or distribute good rubs.

Good Luck !

Not to be on anyone's squirrel nut's but ...I did order some Plow Boy's (Yard bird) from the KCBBQ store a few weeks back and believe it improved my butts.

A Brethren has a gracious little offer at the moment, some free samples.
If you like the sample you can buy them from him.

It's no secret that I use Plowboys rubs (Yard Bird and Bovine Bold) in competitions. I think they are must-haves. I also used them at home along with his The Jerk rub. I also use Hen and Hog dust and Heffer Dust from Spicewine and Sweet and Spicy and Spicy Apple from Simply Marvelous regularly.

There are others, but I haven't tried them all :)

As far as where to buy, several Brothers sell these and other rubs. I won't try to list them all and I know that I will leave some off the list, so I'll just list those that I have bought from...

Great Lakes BBQ Supply (http://www.greatlakesbbqsupply.com/)
Simply Marvelous (http://www.simplymarvelousbbq.com/store)
Big Poppa Smokers (https://www.bigpoppasmokers.com/products)

These guys carry a lot of Brethren products.

In no particular order of preference, one's I know to be great on pork are Plowboy's, Simply Marvelous (Pecan and/or Cherry), 3-Eyez, Spicewine Hen & Hog Dust, Rubbed, Smoked & Sauced Rib Rub, and some others I'm not sure you can order but were fantastic.

Ployboy's Yard Bird. You can get it at Bass Pro Shops.

I use Plowboys products and Simply Marvelous products in comps too. Yardbird is good on everything pork and poultry. I like the Simply Marvelous Cherry and the Sweet and Spicy on chikin too.

SInce I consider Mike and Bubba from Great Lakes BBQ supply to be friends, so they get my business.

If you are looking for sauces, I have recently become a very big fan of the Big Butz line of sauces. The Hot, Xtra Hot, and No Butz sauces are all stupid good.

I have decided that when I do buy products for my habit err... hobby, it's Brethren products from Brethren vendors.

I was kinda hoping he was talking to me!:laugh:

Hey, thanks for the awesome hat! I keep waiting to get a chance for my kid or wife to get a pic of me cooking with it. Seems I'm the only one who gets to take photos regarding food around here.:rolleyes:

I have been working on my own. But as others have mentioned try Plowboys. I even use it on eggs.

Check and find out what the local Q is like. The impressionable folks are probably familiar with it. If you are close to KC use that style rub. Cooking technique is first and the rub is second.
