Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

John Henry rub

I recently acquired some John Henry Mojave Garlic Pepper rub. Has anyone used it? What did you put it on? Thanks

    I use it every sunday on boneless skinless chicken breasts.  I butterfly them and hit them with a light coating and grill to 155 raised direct.  we use them for sandwiches and salads for lunch throughout the week.  its good, nothing special but better than just garlic and pepper, a little more flavors too it.  my wife makes me take it easy on hers so that its not too peppery.

    Love that rub. I've used it on spatchcocked chickens, on burgers and on veggies. It's great on potatoes cooked in a CI pan under a spatchcock. Also excellent on tri-tip. Honestly, I haven't put it on anything it wasn't good on...

    Color me a fan.

    The next time I need to stock up on rub, I'm going to try some of the John Heny rubs. Never tasted them, but seems like there are some good ones. Anyone know if a sampler is available?

    There is a sampler available. I would also strongly recommend the Sugar Maple rub for pork shoulder or ribs. I like to add a little heat to it, but it's great for flavor and bark.

    So far I've only used it on beef. I used it on the best prime rib anyone in my crowd has ever eaten.

    I have been meaning to get some of the garlic pepper, but I can't find it in stores around central Arkansas. I have seen it on amazon but just haven't ordered it.I need to though!

    I had a sampler of 5 or 6 rubs at one time. Really liked the Texas Chicken Tickler, need to get some more. Ended up tossing the other ones. Way too much sugar and why would I need a smoke flavored rub? That's what wood is for. I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to their rubs...

    I haven't tried the John Henry rub, but I avoid any rub that has "natural smoke flavor" added.  These might be just fine, but any time I have tried a rub that listed this an ingredient it just has an off "liquid smoke" flavor I can't get past.
