      Being single, making my own is about as expensive a buying. And I'm lazy

      I have tried a few commercial rubs, my wife prefers my mixtures better, and quite frankly, so do I. Edited to add, I don’t think mine concoctions are better, I’m pretty certain they are not, they just have been more fine tuned for what my wife and I enjoy, and how it balances various flavors of various cooks, for our liking.

      rickgregory It's not much easier making rubs yourself. Endless supply of recipes in books and on the internet! 😜

      If I must use a commercial pork rub, it is going to be Hank’s (ie @Henrik) KC Royale.

        So, Hank’s KC Royale is really good. I like, my wife, my kids all like it. It’s reasonably priced. And I simply don’t have time to try a billion different pork rubs, so I go with a good one that supports my friend’s business. That simple, really.

        I'm on this bandwagon for Secret Weapon, but also like Dominator on ribs. Oakridge makes great products.

      My choice would also be Hank’s. I like it a lot, and more importantly it is my wife’s favorite.

        Blues Hog Sweet and Savory, or Hanks KC. If you put a gun to my head, I'd say Hanks.

          There's so many rubs out there it could take you ten plus years to try them all then narrow it down.
          I make my own rubs but if I see something that strikes my interest when shopping I'll give it a go.
          Sadly many rubs are regional or aren't available up here in the boonies or for you in Seattle.
          One of the few I have tried was a Blues Hog product so I'll go with that.

            Used Trim Tabbs Pig Powder since before I knew anything about this site. Still use the rub, but the outcome is far better now. His daughter had a restaurant down the road where it was easily bought. Now I order in bulk online when I can find it.

                I will have to finally decide, pick one and leave the others behind.
                SPG is great and goes with everything. No, wait there is Oink and Hollar from Sugar's BBQ or swine life, I still have not tried Killers hog, Meat Church. I have not yet decided on making my own.
                This question is not fair! I tell you. Not Fair.
                But thanks for asking.
                Happy grilling to you, and PBR too

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
