    Default BBQ RUBS & SAUCES

    To everyone out there that cooks/grills/smokes their own meats (pork butts, ribs, brisket-etc), do you prefer to make your own rubs and sauces are do you do like I do and purchase mine? The reason that I mainly purchase different types of BBQ Sauces is because my family and friends all prefer different types. As far as the rubs go, I buy some from time to time, but I also use my own spices to make it taste like I want it to versus someone's recipe from another state that might have too much of a spicy kick to it or maybe just a tad bit more bite to it as I would prefer as sometimes the rub can overpower the taste of the meat and the taste of the meat should be what you shoot for.

    It depends on what I'm doing. For chicken or pork chops, I might grab a premade rub from the store. I haven't really found one that is all that great, but none of them have been bad either.

    For Barbecue though, I make my own.

    Easier and cheaper to make my own rub, plus I can customize the ingredients as needed.

    At times for beef I simply use coarse salt and pepper. Other times I’ll make it like I do for pork or chicken.

    Salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, dry mustard, garlic powder, cayenne, red pepper flakes, oregano. I’ll substitute thyme for oregano if I’m doing chicken.

    Sauce, I’ll use a couple. Usually buy commercial mustard base sauce, if I want a dark sauce it’ll be a variety of Sweet Baby Rays. I’ve experimented with making vinegar sauces, and have made a couple of varities of white sauce for chicken.
