2020 Rub and Sauce exchange

blind99blind99 Posts: 4,934
This came up over on Cazzy’s thread but I figured I’d address it on its own so as not to distract. The last few years of the exchange were a lot of fun. I didn’t think many people would want to be sending/receiving packages this year, but maybe I’m wrong. 

Thoughts? What say you?

    I like the giving but I don’t know if we could get enough people together.

    I agree that things are not quite right for folks to get out and purchase, mail and receive under the current risk. I think the 4th of July was a natural target for deadline, if that makes sense. It should be picked back up next year assuming we are all in a more stable place. JMTC

    Bummer, dont see what's so hard about getting rubs and sauces. Seems I am at store anyway for other items.
  • I’d do it again. I’m at the store masked up anyway once a week.

    Understand your point. In my case, I made trips to local BBQ joints to compile my gifting. Tried to send out local items that I have loved and enjoyed. For me it wasn’t just a trip to the store....but adventures I enjoyed.

    I'd do it (assuming I qualify).
    In fact, my buddies and I just started selling a new rub (Texas Tandoori). We sold out quickly and will be back in stock in a few weeks. 

     Would love to get in the hands of people in this group.

    If they decide to hold it I will participate I just don’t know if we will have enough people. I have mail ordered a lots but mostly I just go to the grocery store across the street. They have an excellent local selection. A good target date would be Labor Day since the 4th has passed.

    C'mon people.  Stop being Snowflakes.  The chances of virus transmission from item surfaces is so low...  Stop supporting shutting down our country

    When I first participated in the exchange, I didn't have enough post to be able to participate. As a way around the post count, Cazzy allowed me to put up a $50 deposit. When my exchange was successful, Cazzy refunded my deposit.
    Depending on who runs the exchange, this may be an option.

    I would like to participate and would like to know how many rubs and/or sauces are usually offered.

    Does your town have amazon / mail delivery?

    I’m in. I can find enough stuff. Most local stuff which I prefer to send offers pickup at this point. I figure if I can buy it on amazon so can the other person and it defeats the purpose. 

    Last year I got some great stuff from Memphis. I might look him up and just do our own exchange if an official one doesn’t happen haha

    I propose labor day as the target weekend for completion. Many of our Eggers would probably like to try out their new spices and rubs in the cool of the fall....

    @Ozzie_Isaac will be below 100F

    September 7th, average temperature is 95 deg.  Will be nice.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Thanks everyone for the input.  I looked over the numbers, and talked with my brain trust and we haven't got enough for a successful organized exchange this year.  We will try again next year.

    I would still love to exchange, just to get credibility. I live in Kansas and could send local products that I think are great if anyone is interested.
