Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

My favorite Rib Rub has fallen...

My favorite rib rub Home BBQ.com went head to head tonight with John Henry's Texas Pig Rub and Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust.

Did them 350 indirect with peach wood. 1 hour bone side down. Then 1 hour bone side up. Then added Blues Hog. Ribs came out great. Single bite through tender.

Good Smoke ring on the ribs.

Dizzy Dust - Great flavor and a little spice on the end. Then add the Blues Hog sweetness. VERY good.

Home BBQ.com - Sweet and sweeter with the Blues Hog. A really good sweet rib.

John Henry's Texas Pig- Just as good as the Dizzy Dust, it just did not have the spice on the back side. Another VERY good rib.

The taste test was a split decision between the wife and I. She picked the John Henry's Texas Pig Rub. Mine was the the Dizzy Pig. I really like that little backside spice combined with the sweet Blues Hog sauce.

  • I've just started using Blues Hog and I love it. Dizzy Dust is my go to for ribs/butts. Tomorrow I'm picking up several jars of Blues Hog for two butts I'm smoking in the morning.

    If you can find Sonny's Sweet sauce, mix Blues Hogs original 50/50 with Blues Hog for a really good sauce.

    Besides the Texas Chicken Tickler, I've never been a big fan of the JH's. To me, all the ones I tried seemed to have a lot of sugar in them. Too sweet for my tastes.
