We have a couple of Business Members who make some fantastic blends, contact them and give em a try.

The Rub Co and Pepper Pilot are two.

We use The Rub Co products for all our contest entries. Their Santa Maria Rub is great on brisket. The All Natural BBQ Rub works very well on pork products. Chicken and Fish is great for ... you guessed it ... chicken. I suppose if there were a smoked fish category we'd use it there, but I digress. We were very happy with the overall result we were able to achieve with these products in placing 4th in the overall 2009 CBBQA TOY standings. In terms of individual entries, our highlights were a category win in ribs at Clovis and a 2nd in pork at Viejas. Next year, with tweaks in other areas like sauce and cooking time and temperature, we hope to be even more successful.

Bottom line is you can't go wrong with these rubs.

texasbbqrub.com is a good one.
Check Hawgeyes.com for bunches of rubs and sauces.

I second Texasbbqrub.com rubs. You can use as much as you like and it won't cake up or get too strong of flavor.
Plus I have been using it for almost 8 years.
Bonedaddy's I am partial to and Billybones BBQ Rub are the others I use most.
What do I know I haven't cooked in a comp....yet.

The Rub Company is the place to start and probably end.

just ordered a 2lb bag on TexasBBQ's Grand Champ Rub.

I've had great results w/ Rub Co's champion rub as well. I just used up the rest of it and plan on buying more soon!

Never tried them and wanted to order 5 lbs to sample, but you can't order. Paypal error "merchant is unable to accept money at this time"

I got my first Grand championship using "Simply Marvelous Rubs". I can say my overall performance this year has significantly improved thanks to using Simply Marvelous rubs and Steph is a CBBQA business member.

This may be off-topic, but what suggestions do you experienced competitors have as far as making your own BBQ rub?

There is a young man 14yrs of age that makes his own rubs an modified sauces that regularly places well and beats some well known BBQ cooks. so I would say it's an open field as far as what you make or what you buy.

I started off making my own when I first started competing. I also tried some recipes from notable winning cooks with good results. When I started using Simply Marvelous rubs, I started winning more with great results.

I wanted to try the Rub Co rub, but to get 5 lbs it's gonna cost over $100. Not sure if this is the going price for rub since I usually just make my own, but I can say at that price it's going to cost more than the meat :(

Go to your closest BBQ shop and pick up a bunch of small bottles and try them all. What you don't use put in a sealed container and use them for charity cooks. It is amazing how good some of them taste like when mixed together, and that way you don't waste what you don't like as much as other rubs.

I've seen Rub Co. rubs at Brees' Quality Meats (in Cypress) which is close to my work here. Not sure which rubs they were. You should message Ryan Chester and ask him if they are sold anywhere else locally.
