TOdd,
YES I would buy it...that said I probably would only use it on Chicken though. Not that I don't think I'd like it on beef or Pork. I just ussually like a little more sweetness for my pork and, personally I like a little more black pepper and less other stuff for my Briskets. For chicken ,It's jright on time for me!! I just have to figure out what the heck is going on with your rub and my sauce,not so good together !!

I agree. I think its a good grilling rub for chicken, fish, and chops. Ribs, Butt, Brisket... not so much. I don't know why that is, but those seem to be the best uses. Others are confirming that for me.

Its a little different than most rubs that are called Chicken Rubs, too. It isn't a real savory rub. Most chicken rubs have savory herbs in them. We don't so much.

Todd,


I finally got a chance to test out the rub and here are my thoughts:

* - I really like the grind on the rub. There were no parts that were really out of line size wise. Having a consistent size helps with distribution of the rub. When I cook quicker items I don't want a chunky rub that won't melt down.

* - I put the rub on 4 chicken thighs, 2 breasts and 3 pork sirloin patties. I agree with others that this is a much better chicken rub than a pork rub, it worked on the pork but I prefer a stronger flavor base with my pork leaning towards sweet. On the chicken the rub was great and totally different than other chicken rubs. There was no single flavor that stood out but produced an excellent savory flavor on both the thigh and the breasts. It also was able to develop a decent crisp crust when I put it over a hot flame. If there was anything I would change would be to tone down the salt in it, I might have just been a bit heavy handed with the application of it but it was a bit salty for my tastes. I find that when I judge chicken I look for more salt in the bites than what I would put on my chicken at home.

Overall it is a great rub and I would buy it again, especially if I was looking for a comp rub.

I think it did very good on smaller pork cuts. I tried it on some thick chops on the grill, and they were great. You can see the evidence HERE!

Good feedback. I and others seem to be agreeing on this. Cool.

Just ordered a case of 16 oz. shakers. Need to get my label designed next. Thinking of calling it Plowboys BBQ Yardbird Rub. For a 16 oz shaker, it seems like $8-$10 seems to be the going rate on most rubs. Once I figure my costs, I'll set the price somewhere in that range.

I know others would disagree on the savory issue ,but I think the type of rub you have there (being less savory) is best for chicken. At least it's is a little different, as you said. I really like the spiciness of it as opposed to the herbs such as thyme or even sage. possibly experiment with adding sugars as well as, peppery spices for you other meats ,ie brisket,butts, etc...Again Great rub.

I actually don't like savory for BBQ chicken. Roasted chicken? Yes.

Todd,

I did some thighs today. Rub is excellent. Just a hint of heat, with a very good taste. Sorry, no pics. Chicken is my weakest entry, but I wouldn't hesitate to turn in these pieces. Some of the best I've made. Let us know when it's available commercially. Thanks again for the sample.

Thanks for the feedback. Well, I'm moving forward. Got my shakers ordered on Friday. Hope to have some ready for sale by the end of the month. If you want some for comp before then, just shoot me a PM. I can send in a mason jar or baggie in any amount you need.

Thanks, again.

Hey Todd, I finally had the time to try out the rub sample today. Sorry for the delay, but originally you had said 3 or 4 weeks. You just moved fast and ordered them shakers and I'm glad you did. Since you have already pretty much got the feedback you need I'll keep it simple. I just wanted to hold up my end of the bargain.

As mentioned in a previous post I really like the grind and the texture you're producing with your Yardbird Rub. It is a nice touch to have everything a more uniform size and is something I am going to look into for my homemade rubs. Flavor is excellent as well. Most rubs that focus on chicken seem to have that roasted bird stuffing type flavor. I suppose this is what is meant by savory. I had my big chicken fans out for dinner and it went over well. I will definately buy it and recommend it to anyone.

Here is a pic of the finished product. Just click on the thumbnail image to view life sized. Again sorry for the delay. We're still waiting on this baby and I figured as soon as I got a project going it would be time. Finally couldn't stand the suspense anymore.

Yup, but I think he is about ready to go global.
