Rubs, sauces and other favourite additions.
« on: October 05, 2016, 10:26:46 PM »
Hi all
Whenever I visit North America, I always see aisles full of products that I don't recognise. Given that you are a nation of grill fanatics I'm guessing that the market for such things justifies a whole raft of products that we just don't see in the U.K.
I would be interested to learn about your tips and recommendations regarding 'off the shelf' products as well as your own concoctions of ingredients to enhance the flavour of your dishes.

Regards

I'll be the first to admit that all the runs (rubs., but had to leave runs in there, too funny) and sauces here are mind boggling for me. I just had to try a bunch of different ones to decide for myself and my family.
Off the shelf, I like Famous Dave's rub. It's real good with pork. Weber and Montreal seasoning are great too. I don't know about shipping prices or availability for you, but Killer Hogs rub and sauce is wonderful. I buy that online from their website or pick some up when I visit my family in Memphis. Check them out. Good stuff.
What do you guys carry?

I accidentally stumbled across a jar of this stuff a long time ago, and it's my absolute favorite for grilling chicken. It's available direct from Willinghams or through Amazon.

Killer hogs hot and regular rubs are fantastic imo.

For hot fast cooks with chicken or pork chops, weber kickin chicken is my all time favorite.

Another vote for The Rub by Killer Hogs. I use a lot of it.
I like to buy the 5 lb bag and shaker-bottle it for gifts. (local grocery sells the empty bottles and Dymo label maker does the rest)
It's the rub used in this recipe...

For sauces there are many good ones...
Blues Hog and Stubbs have an incredible line of sauces.
A local sauce, JD's Smokin' Slow is one of the best sauces that I ever tasted.

EAT and Tony Chachere's. Tony's isn't a rub, but an awesome seasoning.

Here's a really simple one, from Cold Mountain. 1 part salt, 1 part sugar, 1 part black pepper, 1 part sweet paprika.

I thought I was the only one. Tony's and brown sugar is what I use often as a rub but I use Tony's in almost everything as a seasoning.

Could get salty quick, but I will definitely try it. Love that stuff. I use the bold, which can be hard to find outside of LA.

Really, most commercial rubs get salty real quick.  It's one of the main ingredients. Cheap & tasty.

for grilling steaks, hands down, i love the astro pigs meateor shower rub
for things i'm "smoking" i like either the cherry or sweet and spicy rubs from the "simply marvelous" line. which one i prefer depends on the meat and flavor profile i want

saucewise-i prefer to make my own, but if forced to use a premade, imo, you can't beat http://www.blueshog.com/Sauces-s/106.htm

For steaks, I stick to EVOO, salt and pepper.
