    I do not know if it’s the best, but I picked this one up years ago for 5 bucks. It’s almost 300 pages of nothing but rubs, marinades, etc etc. I know a lot of people do not really care for SR (myself included) but it’s actually a very good book and very well written. I give credit where credit is due, he has some great rubs and marinades in the book. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    I have this one also. That’s where my Turkish marinade came from . Michael Simon’s Playing With Fire is pretty good also.

    He never mentions it. That is one of the reasons that I am not a fan of his.

    what i usually do but there is something to be said for holding a physical book. and especially for something like this because can makes notes in the book for changes/tweaks, fold corners of rubs you like the most, etc
    Boom

    That is another great book that I have had for quite sometime. The only reason I did not mention it is because it is not dedicated to just rubs. But I concur, a solid all around book on Q 👍

    I like this one!

    Paul Kirks Championship Barbecue Sauces 175 Make-Your-Own Sauces Marinades Dry Rubs Wet Rubs Mops and Salsas Non by Kirk Paul
    Mr Kirk is old school bbq. I have had this book for a long time and it is a good one. Coupled with the fact I cant stand anything about Steven "whatever his name is". I recommend this book often.
