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! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Dizzy rub test

Has a 2 pack pork tenderloin so last night I halved them and tried 4 rubs from my sampler. Tsunami Spin. Raging River. Jamaican Fire. Redeye Express.

The wife's favorite was RR but thought the TS was too hot. Jake likes the TS and RE.

Mine in order. TS, RE, JF, RR. I'm saving the pineapple for... Well, pineapple. Pics are on the Canon... Sorry.

    Was that a typo? You thought the TS was too hot? If anything, I would say the JF is the hottest of the bunch.

    She didn't try it when I told her the name... Should have told her it was Cool Snowflake.

  • Did you try the 5 pack or 11 pack sampler?  I was just getting ready to order one.

    Maybe spicy is a better adjective... Possibly could have overloaded the rub.

    Thanks for the review henapple. I have tried the RE and Pineapple myself. IMHO I like the RE on beef. Really great on brisket. I love the Pineapple on pineapple it really compliments the natural flavor. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

  • We like the Pineapple on Ice Cream.

    Hot vs Spicy It seems many people think when they taste spicy they think hot.
    I wonder why that is ?

  • Pineapple Head is awesome on pulled pork every time.
  • For fear of getting kicked off the forum, I suggest that Dizzy Pig is overrated in many cases.  I have bought each of their products, and while they are OK, they're not the ultimate rub or marinate for many of my needs.  I prefer Texas BBQ Rub for brisket and ribs, Montreal Steak Seasoning for Prime Rib, several Penzy's spices for soups, fajitas, etc.

    I cannot name one dish where DP is my favorite spice.

    Are you using the Old #2 on brisket and Grand Champion on ribs?

    I might swing in next time I'm over that way. Thanks.

    Did you have to ask for that price?  I was there this weekend and bought some Swamp Venom but definitely paid their retail price of $12.  Also, what do you think of that place?  That is where my wife and mom went to buy my egg (it was a surprise bday present from lots of family members swmbo organized).  I've been back in a couple of times to pick up a few things (cover, plate setter, rub), and while they haven't been unfriendly, I always have to go find someone to help me.  No one has ever greeted me or asked if I needed help or has ever been overly friendly/talkative.  Like I said, i've never had a bad experience, but I would expect them to be a little more out going since they are selling more high end items.

    Interesting spelling you all have.  Typical Canadian spelling.

    We spell it troglodytes.

    Like you, I use only Texas BBQ Rub for brisket and ribs. My preference is the Original but do keep some Grand Champion on hand. The one DP I love is Tsunami Spin on chicken. Perhaps some Raging River on pork chops.

  • Raging River and Dizzy Dust are my favorites.  I put Dizzy Dust on just about everything.  Raging River is amazing on seafood and sweet potatoes.

    I bought 6-7 rubs. called them first and did some negotiation. Got my egg from Foxx pools in Hendersonville, they matched Hearth and Grill's price. They were super and still are, Received box of starters in the mail at Christmas from them. Funny, had the EXACT SAME thoughts and treatment at H & G. It was like they didn't want my money. Have had same reaction on several occasions. Only went there for the Dizzy Pig rubs, only place in Mid-Tn I could find them.

    @VI Thanks for the information. I like DP but love to try others. I am going to order me some Texas BBQ rubs. I will must likely get the Origanal, No.2 and Grand. I have seen a lot of your cooks and am always amazed how well they look.

  • I too have only 1 dealer in my area. They suck. They also carry DP. I despise going in there for anything egg related. I ordered a bunch of the large rubs from DP online and explained how much I despised my 1 and only local dealer. They gave me a bunch of free sample packs of all the rubs I didn't order. That is how to treat a customer. Sad part is there are a few I just tasted with my finger and can't wait to put in my order again.

  • Dizzy Pig has the best customer service inside their store as well. I bought my Big Green Egg from them and all my accessories etc. The women that work the retail store part are always helpful and informative on how to best cook on an Egg. Without them I would have never gotten the woo and fixed my pizza problem.
