Last weekend The BBQ Super Store (thebbqsuperstore.com) held a contest to see who could pick the correct winner of the SEC Championship game and their score along with the winner of the Big Ten Championship game and their score.

Well luck has it that I won, 2) one pound bags of the thebbqsuperstore.com "The General" Rub. I decided to use one and will pass the other on to another Brethren. After all. why not share and let someone else try a package as well.

Well the package arrived, and I immediately put it to good use.
The package has a great smell and a nice vibrant color.

Even when applied to the meat the color remains vibrant and the scent of the spices are tantalizing...

Smoked with cherry wood chunks which also adds to the mahogany red color. In this picture the bone begins to wiggle slightly, so I started spraying with apple juice to form a nice shiny gloss on the meat for presentation purposes. As you can see the bright color still remains, from both the cherry wood and the rub, I really like it.

After the rest the pork was pulled and a little more rub mixed in before being served. It was a big hit tonight and everybody liked it.

A great rub at a great price... Thanks Rich and Mark for hosting the contest and providing me an excuse to fire up the smoker, it's a great product.

Hmmm.....so what does one have to do to get the other package?? Perhaps me being from Jersey is enough????

Where did you find a prok? I thought they were extinct. :becky:

That does look mighty good, even though the contest ignored the Big 12. Boomer Sooner!

Never hurts to ask, but sorry it's already on it's way as a Anonymous Secret Santa Gift Package to an Unnamed Brethren.

I smoked it on the Humphrey's Down East Beast, but it was too dark outside to take pictures, so I brought it inside to the electric smoker for 20 minutes to set the apple juice glaze and hold the temperature for resting.

I love the color...


The color is also partially due to using cherry wood. It always leaves a nice mahogany color on all of my cooks when i use it. If you look where the muscles / bark is starting to separate from cooking, you can see the light brown color of the pork.
