John Willingham Honored at Memphis In May 2012

Willingham’s Original Rub is a best seller for the BBQ Pro Shop on Amazon and on our store. We were introduced to the Original WHAM by our BBQ and Grilling mentor Elizabeth Karmel and it was one of the first rubs that we started to carry. We had an opportunity to talk to John when we placed an order with him, and he told us some great news, fresh from his return from Memphis in May 2012.

Memphis in May recognized John as creator of the indirect cooking, his accomplishments of being part of MIM for 30 years  and using the first dry BBQ Rub. He was inducted into the BBQ Hall of Fame with Mike Mills and John Willingham is one of the BBQ greats. An honor and a pleasure to support and recognize him for all he has done for BBQ!

Killer Hog’s The BBQ Rub

The BBQ Rub from Killer Hog's

Malcolm Reed Releases Award Winning BBQ Rub!

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.

Hack’s BBQ Sauce Recipes


Hack's BBQ Sauce

Close-Up of Hack's BBQ sauce, rich and thick and delicious

Hack’s BBQ Sauce is a great BBQ Sauce for those who cannot tolerate the onions and peppers and delightful for those who just love BBQ. Hack’s is a thick and rich, tomato based, specialty sauce made by Stephen Dodd. Stephen created Hack’s BBQ Sauce in 1999 with the goal to eliminate onions and peppers from her diet for medical reasons. Hack’s BBQ Sauce has been enjoyed by family and friends for over 10 years and now we make it available to you!

We want to thank the folks over at Hack’s BBQ Sauce for allowing us to reprint their recipes. If you have dietary restrictions around onions and peppers, here are some incredible recipes for Meat Loaf, Pulled Pork and Sloppy Joes, minus the onions and peppers. Make sure that you remember to have Hack’s BBQ Sauce on hand to make all of these recipes as good as it can get!

Draper’s BBQ Moo’d Enhancer

Moo'd Enhancer from Drapers BBQ Comes in 1LB Packages!

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.
