    Kosmos Rubs or Sucklebuster Rubs

    I have never tried either brand of these rubs and would appreciate your opinions on both. Texans seem to love Sucklebuster but that might be just in-state loyalty. Kosmos has many fans when I read different recipes, etc.

    Would you please share your thoughts on each brand? Thanks!!

    As soon as you put “something, anything” in your avatar pic. We know you’re either a famous TV actor or a CIA operative. So feel free to put an inanimate object there instead of your real pic. We’re really not liking that blank look on your face, as is. 😂

    This would be perfect for you!

      Panhead John Why do I need to have a photo when you always seem to have a large supply of them?.

    I use Suckle busters Hogwaller for pork and Texas 1836 beef rub love the results of both of them.
    The only negative comment I would make is the salt content in each rub is very high.
    Never tried Kosmos rubs so cannot comment.


      I’ve used Kosmos Q Honey Killer Bee on pork butts and baby backs and really liked it. I thought it was comparable to Meat Church Honey Hog, just slightly more savory. I’ve also used Kosmos Q Wing Dust and like it. It’s more of a finishing rub though. I tried dry brining with it and then cooking, and the flavor cooks out. Dusting after the cook tho - really good flavors if you like dry wings.


        All I want to know is...who you callin’ a Sucklebuster there buster?

          “who you callin’ a Sucklebuster there Pilgrim?” Fixed it for you.🙂

        I started using kosmos dirty bird rub on my chicken wings, lots of good flavors with a little heat


          I mainly use my own rubs, but from time to time, will buy some. I have their Dirty Bird and I really like it. My problem with a lot of rubs is the sodium content. I love to over rub, but if the salt is too high, there goes dinner. Fortunately, Kosmos isn't too overboard with it and their seasoning really stands out because of that.


            I have found that Kosmos Q is my favorite line of rubs: Dirty Bird on anything, cow cover and texas beef on beef, honey killer bee, honey chipotle killer bee are awesome as well. I am tend to use all of these accept cow cover on any meat. I also use sucklebusters honey bbq rub on pork and chicken. However Kosmos is my go to.

              So hey Dr J, just wondering if you can still dunk from the free throw line?

              Dr J might’ve started the free throw dunk. Air Jordan perfected it. He’s still the GOAT and LeBron can pound sand.

            I am halfway thru some parmesan and garlic dust and its great. Even goes well with eggs.

            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.
