Hey Guys,

I need help picking out a rub that I can buy that has a good southwest flavor profile. I am cooking for an event that involves using pulled pork and pulled chicken for a taco bar. Do you guys have any suggestions? I want something that doesn't have any overwhelming heat to it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It should be available from some of our Brethren business owners.

Anything with chipotle is pretty much considered to be southwest, or even a fajita or taco seasoning like suggested already.

Thanks for the input everyone. Would you use these suggested rubs straight up by themselves or would you pair them with anything else before smoking the butts and chicken?

My suggestion is to add a little chipotle powder to OakRidge Competition rub. even add a little chili powder, but don't use too much and let the flavors overpower the rub and the meat.

Another suggestion would be simply marvelous spicy apple, a good southwest type flavor and compliments the pork. It is a good rub, but I don't use it anymore because I had a problem with the sole source of distribution for the product. But that's my issue and wouldn't want to impose my prevailing dislike of poor customer service on anyone else.

Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple is probably my favorite rub out there!
