    Looking for a different online bbq rub/sauce site to try

    For my last several cooks, I've been using Oakridge rubs, which are fantastic, but looking to try something new. Any recs? If they also have a good BBQ sauce, would love to give that a try, too. Although Meathead KC bbq sauce is tough to beat. This would be for ribs, pulled pork, chuckies and brisket. I've been using Oakridge Competition Beef & Pork rub for pork and Black Ops Brisket rub for low and slow beef. And also their carne crosta for ribeyes finished on the grill. Those are all excellent if you haven't tried them.

    Thanks!

    I’d recommend Sweet Swine o’ Mine. You can order a ton of stuff from them but they are a competitive BBQ team and make their own runs and sauces too. Lots of interesting picks to consider in one place!

      Please baby, Please baby, Please baby, PLEASE! Forbes Magazine writes, "Instead of mass market supermarket brands full of processed ingredients, consider standout Black Swan Gourmet BBQ Sauce….definitely a step up "

    You mention sauce, I recently tried Blues Hog sauces, the original and the Tennessee Red. Wonderful sauces, although the red is what I personally like.

    Meat Church rubs I have given a go with and liked. Holy Cow and another one I forget the name of offhand, I think it’s called The Gospel - but they were good - not as good as Oak Ridge in my opinion though. You named all three of my favorite rubs by Oak Ridge.

    Although you didn’t mentioned Smokey Chile lime by Oak Ridge for chicken. Give it a try, it’s really good.

    And...really, last one - Kosmo’s Hot Dirty Bird rub.

    I do have my own mixes though as well, a hand full from Meathead’s book and a few others I’ve picked up in reading.

      You pretty much nailed my thinking on alternatives! I wonder what else will show up here.

      Thanks barelfly! Haven't tried Oakridge's Smokey Chile lime yet. Will go for it next time. I have a small bag of their Jamaican jerk for chicken. Very spicy. Very good. I've heard of Kosmo's and Meat Church, so I'll give those a try. Thanks again for the recs!

      I've now dabbled with all the Blues Hog offerings and I like them all in different ways, but I think they are meant for competition. They stand out, but it's a bit much if you do more than a glaze. Mixing them together or cutting them with other liquids or sauces though makes them MAGIC. Great stuff!

    I am going to give you this site. It is my favorite when I want to try something new and different. Some are from well known BBQ teams others not so much. Every once in a while I will go through and pick one totally off the wall and really like it. https://www.thebbqsuperstore.com/BBQ_Sauces_s/1513.htm

    I recently discovered the Bearded Butchers Original Seasoning. It's salty. https://beardedbutchers.com/

    I've found a few online places up here in Canada but shipping charges make buying a moot point.
    Be cheaper to hop in the car and go pick the stuff up and even that's hard to do with the Covid crap going on.

      Smoking77 It seems I'm like texastweeter I make my own too but its always great to find/try other rubs.
      My go to BBQ store closed down, it was 10 mins away and had a fantastic selection of rubs. Get this Covid crap over with so other places open again.

    Not much help here. All mine are home made with the exception of old bay, Cavanders, and cheap lemon pepper.

        For chuckies and brisket I like the Spice House Back of the Yard. Also Blues Hog TN Red BBQ sauce, although you are right, Meatheads KC sauce is pretty darn good. Just tried Max Good's sampler pack, and while all 3 are excellent, we really like the Beso del Fuego - the heat in it is right on!!!

        If you want a new hot sauce try the selection for Big Daddys Ass Burn
        http://bigdaddysassburn.com/

        Theyre my neighbors - live a block a way or so. They're the weird neighbors with the bikes in trees and lots of yard art. But the sauce is pretty good

          Killer Hoggs BBQ Rub is what I use on ribs and pork butts. I like Blues Hogs sauces (the Raspberry Chipotle is awesome).
          I love Oak Ridge BBQ Black Ops but since trying just plain old salt and pepper on my briskets, I’m hard pressed to use anything else now. No sauce on my beef.
          For whole chicken, just salt and pepper and good old white sauce is the ticket for me.
          For chicken wings, my family likes Sweetwater Spice Tres Chiles Fajita Bath followed by a generous shake of Cattlemen’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning, and then tossed in Plowboy’s Hothead BBQ Sauce (this recipe comes from All Things BBQ and it is delicious).
