What are your thoughts on it. They just started stocking it at our local market.

  • I've used numerous things on my butts, and I always go back to the tried and true BBBR. I like all of the Dizzy Pig rubs, and I use them almost exclusively with the exception of two other rubs, BBBR and a local coffee based rub that is phenomenal.

    You asked for personal opinions so I'll come forth. I bought it - used it once - then threw the rest of it in the trash!

    Buy it.

    It's a "Power Rub" meaning that you don't use it straight. Most use it 50/50 with Turbinado sugar.

    I could name 50 competition teams that use it but then I'd have to kill you :silly: (or they might kill me!) :whistle:

    Seriously, it's very popular on the competition circuits. It DOES have a lot of salt, but as I mentioned above, it is intended to be mixed with something.

  • Seriously? What didn't you like about it?

    One other thing to add for the OP, I had a friend come over and eat some of the Q that I made one day and he went to the local Egg store and picked up a large container of BBBR. A few weeks later I was at his house and he had already put hurting on the bottle so I asked him what he had been putting it on and he said "everything". He was serious, he puts it on everything.

    The folks I cook for seem to like it, I rarely bring home leftovers from my church offerings. Works nice on pork ribs also.

  • What? I've never mixed it with anything. I guess maybe I'm doing it all wrong.

    I bet he didn't "cut" it with anything, and it was too salty!

  • Damn.....now I'm thinking I should have been cutting mine, lol. I freaking COVER mine with BBBR and don't cut it with a thing. What do you use with yours??
    ·
  • BobinFlaBobinFla Posts: 361
    Nah. If you like it, it's NOT wrong. ;)
    Just the way many competition teams use it.

    You know those big jugs of Pork Rinds @ Sam's Club? Yeah, add straight Butt Rub. That big jug will just disappear! :whistle:

    Love it on butts and wings, straight on butts but cut 3:1 with turbinado on wings. I don't use it on beef or ribs, but know many that do.

    But, to each his own.

  • LOL. I didn't realize I was talking to the same person in both posts. Thanks for the reply!

    I'm with RRP. Tried it and then tossed it in the garbage can. TOO MUCH SALT.

    I bought a big container of it early in the year. I like it on steaks and roast's but not on pork. But i will try to mix it after reading the post's below.

    I like it a lot. It is salty but we like our salt. I use it straight on pork butt, and mix it 50/50 with turbinado sugar for chicken wings and breast. I even like it on tator tots.

    As others have said, it is very salty, Byron himself will tell you so. I mix it 2parts Byrons, 1 part brown sugar and 1 part paprika. Got some ribs on right now getting ready to pull. I like Memphis style ribs, served with a dry rub and sauce on the side, Blues Hog Original and Tennessee Red mixed, gotta go, it is time to eat :) :P :woohoo: 5899382408_fa5bc79f32.jpg

    I like it and use it a lot on my butts. Everyone I know likes it. Good, quality product. I love other rubs like Dizzy Pig, but on pork butt this is one of the best.

    I have MORE BBBR in my cabinet than ANY other spice, I think it's a quart jar...

    Waaayyyyy too salty for me, but as usual, YMMV. Might be OK if cut with other less salty things, as others have said. I really like his Jubilee Seasoning on fish.

    I like it. My buddy swears by it and uses it on almost everything.

    I will add it to brown sugar as a rub for ribs and butts.

    Use it all the time. Very good rub. As his Jubilee is also very good on seafood.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, just added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    Grrr .... Firefox keeps reloading the old tab that I posted, I killed it now, sorry 'bout the duplicate posts, still like the rub though and will try the cut version too :)

    Tried it on ribs and it was just awful. I didn't know it was meant to be cut so I guess it's not a fair assessment. I don't use it meat anymore but I do use it when I make BBQ sauce.

    It isn't supposed to to be cut unless you want to. I wouldn't use it on ribs. Only butts. I have specific rubs for specific meats.
