Which Dizzy Pig rub?

I need to order some rub and I'm not sure which ones I should order. We don't like a strong run flavor. Just something to enhance what we are cooking. We like cooking steaks, a lot of chicken and I would like something that is good on fish.

Thanks, Mark

    Raising the Steaks (steaks) and Tsunami Spin (fish), IMHO.

  • for steaks...cowlick and raising the steaks (both are nice peppery rubs)

    for chicken - tsunami spin and shaking the tree

    fish - again, tsunami spin and shaking the tree

    (shaking the tree has a nice lemon hint to it) ... .

    if you want more heat to it for chicken and fish go with jamaican fire walk) . . ..

    with any of these rubs, the more you use on a piece of meat, the more intense the flavor is going to be .. .you can simply go light like you would with salt and pepper for a nice light seasoning as well . . .so start light and build up to what you are comfortable with and hit the flavor profile you like .. .then start trying chris's other rubs for more expansive flavor profiles too .. .you won't be sorry . . . .

    "raising the steaks" is perfect for steaks, I love their "dizzy dust" for chicken and pork, and "raging river rub" is great for fish

    cowlick isnt as salty as the raising the steaks, raising the steaks is a fresh, strong montreal typ steak seasoning, i like the cowlick alot better. tsunami spin is his best rub, chicken fish, nice mellow style rub and if you want heat just add some cayenne. ribs and butts you want the dizzy dust coarse. whne i want heat though i like the swamp venom, used to like the lamacain for heat, but over time swamp venom took over. ask for a sample pack of whatever you dont order. if i only had two it would be dizzy dust coarse and tsunami spin, both vibrant but not too spicey, they are all good

    So, what did you order?

    I ended up ordering The Works a few months ago, and I love all the rubs that I've tried (I still have tried the Red Eye Express...the coffee infused rub).

    I'm loving the Pineapple Head Sweet Tropical Rub on the veggies I grill. It has a nice flavor.

    After talking to Chris I decided to take it a little slow to start. I went with Shakin' The Tree, Raging River Salmon Rub, Raising The Steaks Rub. Sounds like I couldn't go wrong with any of them. Chris was going to throw a couple samples for me to try, actually my wife because she's the picky one...lol
