Oakridge BBQ and DP rubs

I normally make all my own rubs but I decided to branch out and look into some good quality prepacked rubs. I just received the Oakridge sampler, the Black Ops brisket rub and a lb. of the competition rub. I haven't had to the chance to use any yet, just taste them but I really enjoy their flavor and spice levels. They also don't have a ton of salt which is what I prefer. Plus their prices are great and they offer $5.95 flat shipping. I look forward to the chance to get put some of them to use! The DP rubs are hit and miss for me flavor wise and I thought the salt levels were a little high on a couple of rubs, but overall the quality is great and they have turned out a great end result on my cooks. Downside is the shipping costs are high. Just figured I would throw in $.02

    I used the Oak Ridge pork and chicken rub sampler yesterday and found it a tad salty. I would go easy on it if you are putting it on chicken breasts. Flavor was really good. The Oak Ridge steak seasoning is outstanding. With DP, I find that it doesn't matter how much I use, I haven't experienced any DP seasonings to be too salty. That being said, I don't care for the swamp venom and the jamaican fire walk so I don't know if the salt content is heavier or not.
