    DD, Swamp Venom, Red Eye, Cow Lick, Jamaican Firewalk..pretty much everyone I've tried I've enjoyed. I really dig the Saamp Venom for wings. Just did three butts yesterday with DD.

  • Tsunami Spin and Cowlick Steak!  I have started to use the cowlick in my age-old chili recipe and I may never go back.

  • Red Eye is my fav - I made some roasted almonds with Curry-ish last night and they were great

    I've tried the Swamp Venum on wings and really liked it.  Did some burgers with Cow Lick and was blown away.  Very good stuff.  I'm using it right now on my pulled beef.

    I have a couple in the cupboard that I haven't tried yet, Ragin River and Dizzy Dust.  Looking forward to trying them.  I've been very impressed Dizzy Pigs products.

    Of those I've tried so far...

    Swamp venom on just about any type of meat.

    Pineapple Head on corn and fruit...
  • oh...forgot Raging River.  That's my favorite for fish - especially salmon.

  • Dizzy dust and red eye express.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Red Eye is my favorite DP rub, and is like no other that I have tried.  All the others are similar to other manufacturer's rubs.  I also like Tsunami Spin and Swamp Venom a lot. DP has a great product line and none of the rubs are bad.

    I have used them all and, as mentioned above, they are all top notch. My favorites for the time being are, Red Eye, Raising The Steaks, jamacain FW, and Swanp venom. Pretty much in that order. I really enjoy the fact that they offer flavor profiles out of the ordinary/ traditional.

    Cow lick for burgers and chili, Raging River for turkey, shrimp, and fish , fajitaish for tri-tip, raising the steaks for... Steaks, and pineapple head on sweet potatoes. I bought the sampler and have got most of them in full size now.

    Red Eye, Steaks, and Dizzy Dust.

    Really wish they'd cut the salt from them though.

    It's all Mrs Dash for me right now.

  • My favorite is Raging River. One that I didn't care for at all was the Bombay curry.

    Raging River, Cowlick, Dizzy Dust, I could go on, I haven't found one I didn't like. Swamp Venom is my favorite multi purpose though.

    The salt doesn't bother me, however, they do offer some of the rubs in salt free.

    I think Swamp Venom gets used the most around our house. Makes it into all kinds of other dishes besides BBQ.

    Like Aviator and Griffin said, Swamp Venom goes into a lot of stuff besides BBQ. I really like it on eggs and sprinkled on fresh sausage for breakfast.
  • You can get Dizzy Dust salt free.

    After the last couple comments I got out my sampler pack and made some Shrimp dusted with Swamp Venom. It was awesome and I will be buying a shaker bottle of it next time I need order something.

    I normally cook for people who don't like spice and I assumed it would be too hot. It is perfect on shrimp! I'll have to try Jamaican Firewalk next and probably need to get a bottle of that too!

  • I use DD on ribs and butts. Firewalk and swamp venom on wings are my favorites but my wife says that wings with tsunami spin are "the best wings she's ever had"
  • JRWhiteeJRWhitee Posts: 4,499
    Cow lick, raising the steaks, raging river are most used, I need to try swamp venom since so many like it. I did tsunami spin on some wings at the eggtoberfest and they had a lot of positive comments.
