Gilded Splinters

Just received my first bottle of Gilded Splinters! I'm planning my weekend and want to give Ken's rub a good workout. What's a good match for it: Chicken? Pork? Beef?[p]I need to get something going soon.... I've been sampling Gilded Splinters off my finger tips all afternoon.... I'm either going to run out of the rub, or finger tips!!!

    elFloyd,
    I've only used it on chicken and pork and it works well with both. Beef? Can't hurt to try. Good Stuff

    elFloyd,
    That is a rub i would call "all-purpose". I have tried it on chicken, fish, butts, brisket and steaks. If you like the flavor of it on one meat, you should like it on all. If I could get alligator meat, I would try it on that. [p]Enjoy it. You coming to Eggfest?

    Big Murth,
    I do thank you! That's just exactly where the name came from... One taste and your taster will "walk on gilded splinters."[p]Ken

    elFloyd,
    If you're like me (NOT a member of the delayed gratification club), dust some nice little pork chops with Gilded Splinters an hour or so before you blast them at 600º[p]Ken

    BlueSmoke,
    Is there a site now available from which your rubs can be ordered?

  • BlueSmokeBlueSmoke Posts: 1,678
    Sippi,
    I'm still working on the site... In the meantime, my "day job" is both my salvation and my nemesis. If you're interested in sauces or rubs, please e-mail me. (Next week is Spring Break, and I'm determined to devote it to rubs and sauces.)[p]Ken

    BlueSmoke,[p]Your two rubs came in my mailbox yesterday - thanks! I, like ElFloyd, have been tasting it off my finger tip for an hour. One has a little kick to it, yippi. I am reading this thread with interest while deciding what to try it on first, thanks again. [p]When you won the contest with that rub (2nd place) what did they taste it on? Do they just taste the rub or is it applied to something?[p]Tim

    Tim M,
    I was wonderin the same thing about how they judge those things like sauces and rubs.[p]You'll enjoy Ken's rubs.

    Nature Boy,
    "If I could get alligator meat"[p]It's illegal you know, but I did have some years ago while at a real Alabama deep southern BBQ. It was an experience to say the least, but they were deep frying alligator tail. It was very good - tough and chewy but a flavor like chicken. I had finished one and was on my second when they told me (the yankee) what it was. I had my 1st (and last) Mt. Oyster a few beers later that evening, yuck.[p]Tim

    Ca_rnivore,[p]I will stand corrected, I thought gator was illegal to kill for food? Did they change that?[p]Tim
  • Nature BoyNature Boy Posts: 8,508
    Tim M,
    What is illegal? Poaching alligators?[p]They farm raise most of them for that industry. I have eaten it fried down in florida, and really liked it a lot. Almost like super firm scallops with a lighter flavor. Yum. Bet it would be great seared hot and fast.[p]Mt. Oysters to you. I'll take squid anyday.

    Tim M, you're right in at one time gator was considered an endangered species and you could not kill them at all. For a number of years now they have been off the endangered species list and you can actually get permits to hunt them (apparently not real easy - since sometimes the gators win). Most of the gator products - food and hide primarily - come from farm raised gators.
