She's throwing us off her trail!

Personally I don't like liquid smoke in my sauces. So I tend to avoid anything that has it in it. Saying that, Sweet Baby Rays on chicken is very good.

I love Buster Rhino's sauces and Butt Rub as well.

My steaks are hit with garlic powder and Montreal steak seasoning.

Otherwise I make my own sauce and rubs.

I liked it from the bottle. Looked a little on the syrupy sweet side but was really good.

I grew up on Open Pit. Guess that's why I like it. I like John Henry and Head Country rubs too.

If you think she's using this stuff in comps then I'm using ketctup, salt, and doe estrace. I know she's not. She might like it, but comps aren't about what you like if you are winning like she is.

That being said:
Rub: Uncle Bubba's Fool Proof Rub
Obie Que's Sweet
Wolf Rub Original(after all...Larry is my hero )
Prudhome's Poultry rub(favorite)

Sauce: Uncle Bubba's
Sweet Baby Ray's
KC Masterpiece bold
Cattleman's gold(great mustard sauce)

I will guarantee this...I use at least one from each of those lists at comps...which really makes it worth while to have your own stuff win. Kind of different than using someone else's stuff...which is ok too because I use other's as well.

Sauces vary so much in style that it's really hard to put this all into one category IMO.

1) Any Lexington Style
2) Head Country Original (Far! Far! superior to SBR's. Even Cattlemen's is better than SBR's)
3) Stubbs if you like the Eastern style

Not a big fan of rubs but based on what I've tried so far......

1) TexasBBQ Original
2) TexasBBQ Brisket
3) Head Country All Purpose (beginning to really like it on steaks)
4) Wolfe's Original

Last) Any rub with a lot of salt!

I like Wolf Bold and Knox Chipotle rub. I usually use KC Masterpiece sauce for ribs and I am starting to like Bullseye for Chicken.
