Best Meat Church rub for butt?

I’ve only ever used generic brands and I’ve just now started looking in to Meat Church for my rubs. What do you all use on your butts?

    Just curious why you're limiting yourself just to the Meat Church brand?

    Nothing wrong with Meat Church rubs. I picked up Deez Nuts this afternoon for my pulled pork. Lots of other great brands as well. 

    I also like their Holy Cow, Honey Hog, and Honey Hog Hot.

    I never said I was limiting myself to only that brand.. I simply asked what people preferred for a butt as I was interested in trying Meat Church…

    Hard to go wrong with the bulk bag combo.

    Maybe something not too salty.
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    I usually use a mix of honey hog and honey hog hot, depending on the crowd. 
  • My vote is for Honey Hog Hot. A pork butt is a big piece of meat. It would be difficult to over season from the outside, i.e. a rub. I would also highly recommend Dizzy Pig's Dizzy Dust. (the dude that owns it, and I would assume created the rub, is a forum member) @Nature Boy

    Holy Voodoo is one of my favorites from Meat Church.

    Voodoo is pretty hard to beat. I also think Honey Hog Hot is great. It's not too spicy once it cooks on the meat. 

    I would go:

    1. Voodoo (on anything--veggies, red meat, chicken, pork)
    2. Holy Gospel (pretty versatile but usually use it on brisket or beef ribs)
    3. Honey Hog Hot (amazing on pork)

    A second vote for Honeyhog Hot here.

    I will have to try Honey Hog Hot next time. One time I just used Kosher Salt as one of our guests is on a no sugar diet. Served Vinegar based sauce on the side and it worked out great.

    My new favorite is the Holy Cow rub for beef.

    Try blues hog savory/spicy. I mix up my own, to get the spicy heat and flavor I go after, then use a peach glaze over top. The crust is amazing. We normally stand around the egg picking the char off the cooking grate, with a couple glasses of a Pinot Noir Rosé.

    Delicious diversion caveman style, prior to cocktails and appetizers, I suppose.

    I think you should pick up and use Albukirky Seasonings "Green Chile" rub for pulled pork. I promise you, it is not a heavy chile flavor, nor is it spicy. However, it does produce some of the best tasting pulled pork I've ever made. 

    Not to mention, Kirk the owner is a great guy and fellow egghead!

    I agree though his Sweet Red is also good. The OP asked for Meatchurch though .

    @Gulfcoastguy - I also like the sweet red, but haven't used it on PP. OP is sending mixed signals on what exactly they want. At first I thought only Meat Church until I read the above.  :o
