The Monthly Rubdown: 3 Eyz BBQ

3 Eyz BBQWith Father’s Day right around the corner, the time couldn’t be more perfect for The Monthly Rubdown to rear it’s delicious head once again. To date we’ve showcased our favorite rubs including pork, brisket, and steak rubs, so it’s only fitting that we’re now adding a rib rub to the arsenal. To speak to the stature of this particular rub, it recently brought home the title of overall 1st place rub from this year’s Great American Barbecue, and also received 2nd place honors in the mild category at last year’s GAB. Not to mention it has led the creators to multiple Grand Championships and an overall KCBS TOY rib ranking of 38th in the country in 2008!!!

The 3 Eyz BBQ competition team originally created their Championship Blend as a rib rub, but it’s proven to be a favorite on all of the standard competition meats (chicken, pork, ribs, and brisket) as well as fish, vegetables and popcorn. The flavor profile has a sweet front end, with a mild salty base leading into a tangy garlic finish. The salt content is rather low in this rub, so you can sleep easy letting your fully seasoned rack of ribs rest overnight in the fridge without fear of developing a cured “hammy” flavor. In case you have any concerns about MSG consumption, we’re happy to let you know that 3 Eyz BBQ is free of additives.

Since 3 Eyz BBQ demands only the highest quality ingredients go into their Championship Blend, they choose to mix their rub in small craft style batches. Lucky for you, we were able to get our hands on a few cases of their latest batch just as it was rolling out of the mixing room and have it available in two different sizes:

3 Eyz BBQ Championship Blend Shaker (6 oz) – $5.99
3 Eyz BBQ Championship Blend Bag (1 lb) – $11.99

    This team is a class act. I had the pleasure of being next to them in Arkansas. That was truly a lucky break for me as I finally got to get some of their rub. It is fantastic and one of my favorites. The best part of this team are the guys themselves. Truly one of the nicest teams you could ever hope to be next to.

  3. d34dh0r53 says:

    So what’s the recipe? I ain’t gonna buy no rub.

  4. Jason says:

    @d34dh0r53 – Sorry guy. It’s an ultra secret recipe that the 3 Eyz bbq team keeps under lock and key.

  5. d34dh0r53 says:

    Ahh, bummer. It must have a lot of cumin if it’s that secret ;)

  6. Jason says:

    @d34dh0r53 – I just checked the ingredient list for you: Sugar, Salt, Pepper, and Spices. :)

  7. d34dh0r53 says:

    LOL that’s pretty funny.

    Sure, it’s going to kill a lot of people, but they may be dying of something else anyway.
