    Default Starting a rub collection

    I have always done my own rubs because the ones they carry in grocery stores around here are crap. After travelling to Texas and discovering how much better in general the rubs were than mine, I have decided to start a "storebought" rub collection.

    Now I don't want to buy everything under the sun just to find out I don't like it. So I am going to limit myself to ones that you folks recommend.

    Reading through past posts, I am already set to go get Blues Hog, Head Country, and Rooster Booster. I am not looking to start any fights, just send along your recommendations.

    I primarily cook the following:
    Pork Spare Ribs
    Pork BB Ribs
    Pork Tenderloin
    Pork Loin roast and chops
    Beef ribs
    Beef Tri Tip
    Chicken of all sorts

    Thanks for your time.
    I am in shape. Round is a shape.
    I LOVE vegetarians! They come in Chicken, Pork, and Beef flavors!

    I really like Sucklebusters Hoochie Mama Rub. I haven't tried Blues Hog or Head Country but they are on my must try list too.


    I made some ribs over the weekend and tried the Slap Yo Daddy All Purpose Rub he has posted on his site and really liked it. You might want to give that a try too.

    My all time favorite is Head Country. I also use Big Ron's "Hint of Houston" and his "Just Rub It On". I use either/or on ribs, Boston Butt and Brisket. For chicken I use Rooster Booster and plan on getting the Seafood Splash that SmokyOkie has. Every time a see a rub in my travels it seems to follow me home so I do experiement but Head Country is still my favorite.

    Personal favorites have been Sucklebuster's rubs and D-dog's rubs. SB's Hoochie Mama is good on beef and is a go-to for brisket, while Hog Waller is good for ribs. D-dog's Apple rub is good for most all pork or chicken, while the Original is good for burgers. D-dog's rubs are sweeter, while the SB line is more savory.

    For pork, I sure like Big Rons hint of houston. It has just a little heat, not much. Very low in salt. He also has in the house(?iirc) and original. I don't like the in the house, original is too blah and needs something added to it.

    Beef, Tony C's, rest is individual spices
