Cooked three slabs today. One with home made rib :woohoo: a little too much heat, one with DP SV & JFW and one with JH Pecan rub. The wife and I agreed, the pecan rub won hands down.

    Agreed. As much as I like the DP rubs, I've come to love the JH Pecan on ribs.

    dude..I keep JH pecan and HOT pecan at all times..havent tried a rack of ribs yet usin it..but may be my next cook of ribs..we love it..but it has lotta sugar in it so that may be the reason we are partial.. I really like JFW and SV, but probably not the best choice on ribs...will def try the JH pecan..those look awesome..thanks for the pix!

    I was surprised by the taste and flavor. Wife was really pleased. Give them a try.

    Is the JH Pecan a rub or sauce?

  • BamaFanBamaFan Posts: 658
    It is becoming my favorite on most any thing you want to cook. The last fattie I did had pecan rubbed in. It was outstanding.
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    How hot is the Hot Pecan?
  • JeffersonianJeffersonian Posts: 4,244
    It's a rub. The ribs you see in my pic have JH Pecan and are sauced with Sweet Baby Ray's Original.
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Ahhhh, now I understand. Is the mix good?

    I tried some Stubbs spicy and original baby rays and that is real good.

    By far my favorite rub on pork. I like to give it a splash of JFW too for a little kick.

    I like to use pecan wood for smoke to really complement the flavor in the rub.

    Nice ribs!
  • EggtuckyEggtucky Posts: 2,746
    It's gotta fair kick but not unbearable..if you like JH Pecan you GOTTA try the HOt...
  • EggtuckyEggtucky Posts: 2,746
    ditto that Fidel! ;)

    Great ribs and that is a nice rub.

  • JeffersonianJeffersonian Posts: 4,244
    Along with cherry wood smoke, it's our favorite combination.
  • Next time you make pulled pork, mix some of the pecan in with the pork after you pull it.

    I also like their summer peach and raspberry chipolte.
  • JeffersonianJeffersonian Posts: 4,244
    Now that's a good idea!
  • BamaFanBamaFan Posts: 658
    I will have to order dealer does not stock the Hot. Can't wait to try it.
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    I need to get some ordered... Thanks.

  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Thanks, I guess I better get both on order.

  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226

    Do you mix or just put one on first and then the other. How heavy on both?

  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    The past few times I have done ribs I rub them with worcestershire sauce, then a fairly heavy coat of JH Pecan, then a dusting of JFW.

    Then after 4-5 hours I coat liberally with honey, then when they are done a couple hours later a good coat of Blues Hog sauce.

    Very yum.

    Anyone have a link for JH rubs?

    JH Pecan has quickly become our favorite rub on pork. The first time I used it was on chops. Incredible. Monday I used it on a pork loin that was wonderful. We have already used up half a bottle and haven't had it that long. Great stuff.

    I too like the JH and the DP. I have the Pecan (buy the Texas Size, it saves re-ordering) and the Pecan Hot. Both are great. The JH Pecan Hot is as advertised, it has some kick. I generally add the hot as a "final dusting" to my base rub (my opinion).
    My DP favorite (mix) for Ribs is Raging River (wait an hour) then a full coat of Redeye express and yellow mustard over the top. Both brands go well with a Pecan or Cherry smoke. My 2 cents. Hope all have a happy and safe weekend. rc
  • Anyone know if you can order the JH rub some where other than through his site? I'm being a little cheap and don't want to pay double the cost of the run in shipping alone. Seems a bit hefty, but maybe that's just something I'll have to get over.

    For someone who doesn't enjoy eating nuts (pecans included) would this rub still be a good choice? From the way it sounds its a spectacular rub, am I going to be disappointed or will it just be some very tasty seasoning?
