    Meat Church vs. Sucklebuster Rubs

    On a different forum I have been seeing raves about Meat Church rubs. I went to MC's website and liked what I saw. However...A few months ago, people raved about Sucklebuster so I bought several of their rubs. Neither my wife or I were impressed by them. Not bad, just nothing special.

    Since both are made in Texas, I would appreciate hearing opinions from Texans re your favorites.

    Texans like beans in their rubs, and chili, be sure to look for this in the list of ingredients.

      HawkerXP I can easily get a ride from Panhead John. Nothing like a cross-country bike ride on the back of a hard tail Harley.

      Ok Troutman I don’t have a sissy bar....so...no reach arounds.

    I am not a Texan, but my wife and I really like the Meat Church Holy Gospel rub. We haven't tried any of the others yet cause I have a shelf full of rubs to go through first.

      klflowers I am like you, with a cabinet full of rubs that I thought I would enjoy. Too bad we can't have a 'swap meet' and we could all trade our unused jars!

      Clark I am determined not to buy or make any more until I finish what I have, but I am weak, and Hank's KC Royale is shouting for me to buy some more.

      The rubs and seasonings just keep adding up, one after another.
      The other day I just used SPG on some pork chops. Worked great.
      That is too simple and not complex.

    Out of all the many rubs I’ve tried over the years, my favorite rub is made by Big Moe. Just sampling it straight out of the jar is by far the most flavorful I’ve ever tried. And even after it’s been cooked on the meat has been great. The chicken and pork rubs are the best. His brisket rub was just ok, not bad. My favorite homemade rub is:
    3 teaspoons of Tony Chachere’s
    1 teaspoon of ground cumin
    1 teaspoon of chili powder.
    This is great on chicken wings and pork. Very tasty and a little spicy, the flavor really shines after the cook.

      Of the Meat Church rubs I've tried, Holy Voodoo is my fav, but the others aren't bad. Also of note, I noticed Meat Church rubs are $1 cheaper at buc-ees...if there's one near you!


        I use Sucklebusters Hogwaller for pork and frequently and enjoy the taste.
        My only complaint/dislike would be the amount of salt in the rub.
        They're Texas 1836 beef rub is high in salt but I don't mind it for beef.
        I have never seen Meat Church rubs here so can't comment on them.

          smokin fool I have been using SB Texas 1836 on beef and I like it except for the heavy salt. They say that MC's Holy Cow if great on beef and would like to try it. Don't want to have to buy a $30-$50 package, plus shipping, to try it.

      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.

      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.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
