Guinea Pig report #1

Recieved my sample of Wolfe Rub Bold yesterday. I decided to try it before I leave Friday morning. I cooked a half pork loin & a 2 lb. chuck roast(all I had on hand). I used apple wood for the milder flavor and a few chunks of hickory for the kick.
A taste right out of the bottle seemed a little salty, but then sweet with a bit of heat.
The pork loin was the juiciest I have ever made, I left it unstuffed to get the full effect of the rub.
The bark (the thick bark) the rub made seemed to hold in the juices of the (notoriously dry) pork.
The chuck's flavor was totally different. It still had the spiceness but not as strong as the pork, alot more sweetness. I think it could have been the fact that I foiled the chuck and not the pork.
Anyways here's the pics.






In my honest opinion, I am amazed at the difference of the 2 types of meat! The rub formed an excellent bark & flavor. I hope someone tries this on ribs! Good stuff Wolfeman
I really liked it and I think you should stick with the recipe you have

Good looking meat there Puffy.
Glad that you liked the new rub on the meat.

See you next weekend.

Thanks Guinea Pig #1! First of all, great job cooking. You did a great job as usual. I think out of the bottle it's a litlle on the salty side too, but once cooked it looses the saltiness, I thought. I based the rub on beef, so that explains why it was "Bolder" on the pork. I tried it on chicken and have to agree with you, it's definitely stronger on the white meat.

Thank you Puff for your review, glad you enjoyed it!

Maybe it was because one was beef and one was pork! [smilie=a_takethatfoo.gif]

It all looked good Puffy boy, nice job!

I also tried my Wolfe Bold tonight on some rag steaks. I dusted them a little to light and couldn't really taste the rub, but I'll be trying it again this weekend and let you know then!

I got mine the other day. Just gave it the "right out of the bottle" taste test. Very good flavor. I think this is going to be great on chicken. I'll give it a test run this weekend.

Great looking food, Puff!

Haven't tried any of the Wolfe rub myself yet but after we get this cooking thing down, I might have to order some. Don't want to waste it on a bad cook. LOL
