My grandfather lives out in Forney, TX. was wondering if there was any good BBQ places or sources I could have him grab me some rubs/sauces from and have him ship them to me.

He's here on vacation, had him and some more of my family over for dinner last night. Had the drum doing its thing and cooking up some chicken thighs, just standing around talking about bbq and what not. He was interested and impressed with my UDS and tells me "I just gave away my traeger" LITERALLY GAVE IT TO A GUY FROM HIS CHURCH!!!. Used it like 6 times. Went and bought a gasser so he could cook his steaks in 20 mins... that let me know where I was on the favorite list! LOL

Most of the Good Rubs and Sauces can be ordered online.
PlowBoys, Oakridge, Adkins are my favorites but there are tons more.
Change title to "Rub recommendations needed" if you are wanting ideas.

Usually I make my own. Just didn't know if there was something or someone in the Forney area that I should try.

I've been watching the recent rub recommendations thread. Lots of stuff I'd like to try and will be ordering sometime in the near future.

I just did a big batch of some home mixed rub that I found on a Weber forum. Tweaked it a little, fine tuned, used turbinado instead of brown sugar, and the last 4 or so cooks have been outstanding flavor.

Also made my own sauce.

I picked up a few bottles of Fiesta Seasonings at HEB the last time I was down in Houston. Uncle Chris's Steak seasoning is pretty good. But you can probably get those online as well.

I live IN Forney - nice place- don't get me wrong. But I make my own rubs, fake my own sauces and cook my own BBQ. This ain't Austin - or any other "home of authentic xyz cuisine" You are better getting your stuff online- just like the rest of us :-D

I think the closest HEB is in Ennis TX about 30 miles away. I would say that one of the best sauces I have had from Texas was "Texas - Texas Good to the Bone" and the "Texas Shiner" was also a good pick. Not Thick, sticky, sweet but rather a thinner savory sauce that pairs evenly well with pork and brisket. I got them both from an HEB when I was in Texas.

But check the individual store before you go, as I found out that even though HEB is a large chain store, the manager has choice on what they choose to stock. Maybe call and see if they stock it.

They also carried Franklin's BBQ Sauces, and many more.

Can't go wrong with Oakridge and Simply Marvelous Rubs. Both Sponsors here.

Head Country BBQ sauce is one of my favorites. Typically I use salt, pepper, and garlic for my rubs. My mother-in-law picked up a dry rub called Fowel Rub in Oklahoma. It was awesome on chicken. I used it up and threw the bottle away. If anybody has used it or know who makes it, please let me know.

Are either of these what you are looking for?

I was just in a store yesterday and saw some rufus teague meat rub for $3.99. The reviews look good. Anyone try this stuff?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170503/5034134c9e09e3483b36984c8018ce76.jpg
