When we were contacted by Malcolm Reed, creator of “How to BBQ Right” Blog and Newsletter, active member of the Social Network for The BBQ Backyard fans and, a Pitmaster who is on roll (Two Grand Champions in 2012!) to carry his rub, it was an easy choice! So here it is folks, The BBQ Rub! When it comes to recipes, video, and tips galore, his newsletter and blog are tops on how to do it on the competition circuit, or in your back yard.
Killer Hog’s – The BBQ Rub brings out the natural flavors in meat and builds a beautiful, mahogany bark on pork, beef, and poultry. Killer Hog’s – The BBQ Rub was developed as a competition BBQ rub by the Killer Hogs Championship BBQ Team. This rub allows you to turn out BBQ like a professional pitmaster. The Killer Hogs Championship BBQ Team spent years perfecting their BBQ dry rub and now you get a chance to experience the flavor.
The BBQ Rub brings out the best in everything you cook. The BBQ Rub is balanced with a special blend of sugar, salt, heat and other spices. Combining for an amazing flavor that’ll have your mouth watering before it even goes on the meat. After your done cooking, shake some on the finished product, that is what he recommends.

One thing we love about this business is that there is no shortage of creative names around the incredible rubs and spices that we get to try. And Draper’s BBQ Moo’d Enhancer is in the top of the running for fun names, that not only nails the name of his newest beef rub, but really brings home the “Bovine Enhancement Powder” to something that is again special and unique.
Shane Draper is the man behind this latest spice and insiders in the industry tell me that he did a lot of research to find the perfect mix of herbs and spices to compliment this Beef Rub. It contains Sea Salt as the primary ingredient, and also throws in some paprika for flavor and color. It gives the beef a great light orange hue when rubbed on. The garlic and onion are just standards with Beef and it contains just a little MSG, which is something that competition folk are always looking for to provide that tenderness.
Shane set us up with a 1LB bag for sample and we have used on on NY Strips, Prime Rib, Ribeyes and some filet’s. Evvery one just raves about the stuff and wants to know more. The classic AP Rub used to be my goto on ribeye steaks. This new one is not as sweet and has a blend of herbs and spices with some heat that appears to be black pepper and some chipolte which provides an incredible aroma.
All and all, very excited to get this on my next brisket and really excited to start carrying the new 1LB packages which are now in resealable bags for long term maximum freshness. Not so sure that this bag will last too long. The package suggests trying this on all things that moo. So we are gearing up for some burgers, maybe trying it on tacos and possibly some pot roast. The heat hangs around for a little, but certainly is not too overpowering.

When I got the email from Mitch Benjamin of Meat Mitch that they had places #1 and #2 in the Gettin' Sauced BBQ sauce competition, I was thrilled, but not in the least bit surprised! We started carrying Meat Mitch in the last couple of months and have been testing both sauces with very positive results and even better feedback. The sauces have a unique flavor with the Whomp! being a little spicier and the Naked Whomp being all natural, total High Furctose Corn Syrup FREE and just as delicious but not as spicy.
Everyone who has tried them has absolutely loved them and the color that they produce when glazed on the meat is just an added bonus. Give them both a try!
This sauce is all about the sweet and spice, it is a Kansas City Style through and through. It is a sauce that is great on just about everything. Meat Mitch Whomp! Competition BBQ Sauce is sweet, with a combination of brown sugar and ketchup as the primary ingredients, with a spicy kick to it.
Meat Mitch Naked Whomp! is made by a BBQ Competition team so it has a awesome flavor profile as well as a sweetness that you would expect to find in a KC style Sauce. It has a vinegar taste with a lot of all natural sweetness. The brown sugar stands out and it is definitely a sweet sauce, no real heat to speak of even though it claims to contain chili peppers
