View Full Version : 5 Rub Rib Sampler

11-29-2011, 02:59 PM
I was almost out of Plowboys Yardbird and Blues Hog so I hit up Fred's Music and BBQ on the way to taking the kids to Hershey Park for the Christmas festivities. Told the wife I would be "5 min. I know what I need." Low and behold Fred was in there cooking up some ribs...20 min. later and after some rib sampling I decided on some Tasty Licks Original and 3eyz to go with my Blues Hog.

To make a long story longer, I had 5 racks of BB's I was planning on cooking up for the Eagles-Pats game Sunday morning. (which sucked badly, man this season has been painful)


I decided to do a little rub sampling. Grumpy's is a local BBQ in my area. You probably recognize the rest.


Everybody on the egg along with a token naked fatty for 2hrs at 250* over lump and a mix of hickory and apple chunks.


I foiled them for 1hr then back on for about 30 min.

You've heard this one before, especially from me but these ribs hit the road to a buddy's house in which case I did not have my camera so here are the crappy cell phone pics of the result.


People were freakin' out. I heard "these are the best ribs I've ever had" repeatedly until they were gone. I love it when a plan comes together. :-D

To those of you looking for me to tell you which rub was the best. I just can't do it. I wanted to but my experiment just wasn't very scientific. They were all very good.

Somehow we all managed to have a great time hanging with good friends, eating great food and drinking merrily while watching our football season go down the toilet. :doh:

Nice ribs indeed! Sorry about the footy, but at least the ribs are a consolation!

Brother, if they tasted even half as good as they looked I can see why your bird buds were out of their minds over them. :thumb:
