Favorite Dizzy P rub for steaks??

whats everyone’s favorite DP rub for steaks? I have a sampler I got for Christmas and I have about everyone they make. 


  • I went red eye express on mine. The others are what we usually use which is from a local place.

    I like raising the steaks and cow lick. I also put on some Jamaican Firewalk cause I love hot stuff.

    I'm a big fan of DP rubs, but when it comes to steak I prefer kosher salt as the only seasoning. OTOH I have won a couple steak grilling contests using DP Raising the Steaks rub where I was sure the judges were expecting some taste enhancer.

    Raising the Steaks for the win. I am not the biggest fan of coffee flavor on my beef.

  • Red Eye closely followed by Raising The Steaks. I generally dislike coffee, but my wife wanted to try Red Eye and now it's become my favorite.

    For awhile, I used Raising all the time. But when I ran out of it, tried Cowlick again, and found I liked it a lot, and its become standard.

    I like several mentioned above, but Raising the Steaks is my all around favorite.

    Salt, pepper and a very light dusting of cowlick is the standard at our house.

  • I use about 50/50 raising the steaks and red eye. I put down the raising the steaks and top it off with the red eye.

    Most of the time I will dry brine with salt for an hr or so then cook.  I’ll add Pepper, garlic and onion powder after the cook during the rest.   I’m pretty sure it was @paqman that turned me on to this

    @Mattman3969 is that so the rub doesn't burn when you sear?   I've started doing just salt until after the sear as well.

    SPOG. Salt first, sear then Pepper, onion powder, and garlic during the cook.

    This. Sorta. My dry brine is an insult to dry brines everywhere. First, just a tiny pinch on both sides, and only for 30 minutes or so. So little, I'm surprised I can taste any saltiness. Most probably wouldn't, but I do. After the cook, black pepper, sometimes garlic or herb butter.

    Tried a couple of DP rubs on steaks, home-brew steak rubs too. For me, nuthin' beats s&p.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I've found the best for steak and brisket is Lawry's, Pepper, and Ms. Dash (real cheap at Costco!).  Both are left 24 hours on a rack, seasoned, uncovered, in the refrigerator.  Steaks reverse sear, obviously!

    The Dude: This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Luckily I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind, you know, limber.
