Need help picking rubs

I'm planning on purchasing some rubs since i'm running dry. I'm gonna try the Wolf Rub Bold for sure but not sure on some other ones. Gonna be used for alot of ribs and chicken for now until i get some confidence doing some of the other bigger stuff.

Wolf Rub (which i like), BRITU rub (which was kinda ok), and some supermarket cheapies are the only rubs i have tried so far.

If you guys could recommend me a couple decent ones, or maybe your top three, that would be great! It would give me more confidence when i buy it.

Thanks!

I like Larry's rub. I haven't had any in a while.

We also love TexasBBQrub original. (And so does my mother-in-law)

Here is that link.

The rub is a little peppery and is also a little sweet.

Wolfe rubs are good choices.
Give Dizzy Pigs a try. The Dizzy Dust is good stuff.
I tried Bad Byron's Butt Rub a while back and liked it alot.

Wolfe Bold is fantastic! Big Ron's rubs are pretty good also.

I keep quite a bit of the WRO on hand. You might try the sampler pack from Dizzy pig, gives you an idea of what they have. ddogs is good stuff too. my bunch loves the maple on smoked yardbird. tried the apple on some chicken breasts too and it turned out great.
