    BBQ Seasonings - What do you use?

    I shed a little tear on Sunday when I used the last of some Kirkland Sweet Mesquite seasoning on some chicken thighs and am now on the hunt for another tasty rub.

    This stuff was never available in Canada and I don't even know if it is still available in the US, which is a bit of a loss. Say what you will about Kirkland spices, but this stuff had a really nice sweet/savoury mix to it that went very well on many things.

    So now, what does everyone use that they can recommend? I see the Meat Church products used everywhere on Instagram but I might as well sell my truck to buy those up here, so what else is there?

    I am typically a salt + pepper + garlic + onion person, and have concocted rubs from recipes or freehand, but sometimes you just can't beat store bought mixes.

    Search online for a recipe that sounds good to you. Make a small batch and adjust until it gets to your liking.

    I don’t normally use off the shelf seasoning and marinades but this stuff is amazing for grilled veggies, veggie/steak kabobs and especially grilled Portobello mushrooms. It’s a locally produce dressing with a long history, I have never tasted anything like it anywhere. Otherwise I keep it simple with S.P.G.

    Depends what I'm making. If it's ribs, just salt and BBQ sauce. Last night I made the most delicious knife and fork baby backs I've had in a long time. Don't pay attention to the presentation, I had left over paper plates and such from last weeks bbq.

    As far as sauces go, I'm not big on making my own, but rather pick up bottles from joints around the country. When in a pinch, Sweet Baby Rays always wins the grocery store aisle.

    I believe this to be true for almost everything: good meat requires nothing but salt.

    I generally make my own now. Can make great rubs out of just salt and pepper plus a few other things. I have bought some pre made and use Adkins stuff.

    I use the traeger rubs as well.

    Brisket I am a simple salt, pepper and garlic powder.

    Ribs I do 2 to 1 pepper and salt with some garlis powder, paprika, chili powder, little mustard powder.

    Pork butt..... generally whatever, I don't do it often.

    Buying pre made rubs gets expensive though. You might experiment on your own if you havent tried.

    Meat church is here in texas, maybe I can find some for you!

    Mike’s magic dust is a good place to start and I adjusted it a little to get it to taste they way I like.

    I use a Safeway house brand sweet & smoky rub when I can find it. Great on beef

    Also have a citrus herb seasoning from McCormick that is awesome on chicken

    I use my own Blend of spices on pork shoulder and tri tip. My friends have named it “Dave’s dirty butt rub”

    I make my own to cut down on the amount of salt and paprika and to bump the things I like. For pork, it’s black pepper, white pepper, cayenne, salt, paprika, granulated garlic and onion, ground chili and cumin, dry mustard, a little sage and ground bay leaves with some turbinado sugar. Beef is black pepper, garlic, salt and a little onion.

    Amazing ribs.com is a great bbq resource with some great jumping off point recipes. The rest is up to you to fiddle with it to find what you like.

    Anything from Oakridge BBQ and Naturiffic are top notch. I used to make my own, but these are so good and easy.

    I'm about 50/50 on rubs making my own or store bought. Sauce is a little different because of the different ingredients needed so I generally use store bought sauce but I use different sauces for different meats. One tip I got from a team that was competing in Memphis in May was to use sugar, and honey that are ground fine.

    I use Bad Byron's Butt Rub for ribs and pork butt

    For brisket and beef, Meat Church Holy Cow. Buddy recommends Meat Church Gospel, so I'm going to try that next.

    I follow a hashtag on Instagram and there are tons of people that use that. It must be good. I might need to try it out.

    My local Ace Hardware carries Meat Church along with some other good ones. I also saw above Oakridge BBQ recommended; their Black Ops is what I use on brisket. They make some killer seasonings.
