View Full Version : Pork rub opinions

Opinions on some good pork rub I can have shipped for use on pork ribs and butts. I make my own on beef but want to buy in bulk for use on pork. I've heard plowboys and oak ridge a lot on the pages. I'm big on heavy pepper and a little sweet on pork

I like a lot of pepper on beef, especially brisket, but not on my pork. I like pepper in my rub, but sweet is more in the lead. I don't know of any heavy pepper commercial pork rubs.

Was just looking at the same pack. Definitely a must try for that price. Doesn't have to be super heavy pepper like on brisket. I just like that pepper flavor with some savory and sweet on pork

I used Bad Byron's Butt rub for years, using a lot more plowboys now. You could always add more coarse grd pepper to taste, good luck in your search.

I love grand champion from Texas bbq rubs. Also love the rubs from Oakridge.

You might like Sucklebusters Hog Waller. You can buy it in bulk. Here is a link (http://www.sucklebusters.com/hog-waller-bbq-rub/). Good stuff. You can get sampler packs.

Rub for pork butt is nothing magical. I would simply make some starting with Chris Lilly's or Harry Soo's recipe. Good luck.

I think when most of us say plowboys on pork we are refer to yardbird. Perhaps you would like their bovine bold. Defiantly more pepper than yardbird.

Hard to beat this homemade rub. Just tweak it to your liking. I like more heat so I add more cayenne. Make it your own by adjusting to your taste.

Also keep in mind that nothing stops you from starting with one rub and then apply another halfway through the cook, or even sprinkling a little more into the pulled pork and mixing before serving.
