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.
Our favorite and BBQ Mentor Elizabeth Karmel Interviewed By The Q recently as the BBQ Expert that she is, representing Hill Country Barbecue, and shares tells her secret for great barbecue at The Q from the South Beach Food & Wine Festival.

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.
Shred Pork, Transfer From Grill to Table, Lift, Carve and Toss Salads!
For a long time since the Grill Friends Silicone Fork became harder and harder to find, we lost touch with a tool that helped make Pulled Pork less of a task and more of a joy. Then came the Bear Paws from Bear Paw Products, and life was now different. They are also great for handling meat of all shapes and sizes. You can toss a salad, hold items for slicing, lift huge turkeys or hams and so much more.
These are awesome!! I have been pulling pork for years using a variety of methods. It has always been time consuming and my least favorite part of bbq-ing. These bear paws make it absolutely effortless. Shredded two pork butts in minutes. I shredded five chicken breast for my buffalo chiken dip almost in a blink of an eye. They also help with pulling butts off the smoker. – via N.Protera @ Amazon

Making sure that you do not mix raw food with your cooked food is so important. Elizabeth Karmel, the creator of Grill Friends is very serious about safety and she took a great idea and made it better. Karmel has been giving this tong tip out in classes, on television and on her website and now, you can own your own pair of custom-made Stop-and-Go tongs without the duct tape. The different colors help you to remember which pair of tongs were used for raw food, like chicken, and which are safe to use for the cooked food. Karmel used the international colors of RED (STOP) and GREEN (GO) to make it easy on home cooks (and restaurant chefs) to remember which tongs to use while cooking and which tongs to use once the food is done.
The Grill Friends Super Silicone Stop-and-Go Tongs are now only $15.99 and in limited supply! The 12-inch professional strength stainless-steel tongs have been in the works for years. Grill Friends Stop N’ Go Tongs silicone tips have a beveled edge to make it easier to get under the food and the extra-long silicone cushions on the sided make them comfortable for every hand. Besides working hard at the grill, these tongs are perfect for indoor cooking and the heat resistant silicone tips are safe for all non-stick surfaces.
If you cannot remember which color goes with which Karmel de-bossed the words raw and cooked on the appropriate tongs. When you put the food on the grill, use RED, when you go out to take it off, serve or slice it, use GREEN.
