If you were one of the lucky 300-400 people that swung by our booth at The American Royal BBQ a couple weeks ago, then you already know about (and maybe even tasted) our latest project. Remember that sauce and rub pictured in our Bacon Explosion recipe post? Well, the time has come to unveil those delicious concoctions to the world. And as a happy ending to this month’s rubdown, we’re even rolling out a few additions to some of our best selling product lines.
With your Labor Day BBQ right around the corner it’s only fitting that we hit you with another round of The Monthly Rubdown…only this time it gets a little saucy. Since we’re getting into the habit of featuring the biggest and baddest competition barbecue products on the market, we figured that it’s time to bring out the sauce from one of the winningest teams in competition history. In fact, this sauce helped win the American Royal Barbecue contest an astounding 7 years in a row!!!
The Monthly Rubdown is back and this time we’re bringing you the rubs and sauce from our absolute favorite barbecue restaurant in Kansas City. Granted, KC is known for the legendary classics like Gates, Arthur Bryant’s and Jack Stack, but if you ask any local, they’ll point you in the direction of true Kansas City style flavor. Even Anthony Bourdain recently christened this hot spot as one his “13 Place to Eat Before You Die”. If you’ve ever had the chance to swing through, then you know exactly what Anthony is talking about.
With 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!!!
Ever since we launched The Monthly Rubdown feature by showcasing Plowboy’s award winning rubs, we’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to sample a wide variety of rubs and sauces. Well, we’ve taken our time and evaluated each and every product that has graced our test kitchen. And although most of the products were good, only a select few have shown the standout level of quality that we’re looking for. In fact, the producers of our latest find are so confident about the quality of their product, they tout it as “Oklahoma’s best kept family secret”…and we agree!!!
Now that we’ve armed you with a few killer recipes, it’s time to start filling your spice rack with the proper ammunition. Picking out the perfect rub can be an intimidating task, especially if you don’t venture into the BBQ aisle all that often. (Yes, that’s right. In Kansas City we actually have aisles of BBQ products, not just racks.) To help you see past those fancy labels and catchy names, we’ve added a new feature to our site called “The Monthly Rubdown”. Hmmmm…did I forget to mention that we’ve also got FREEBIES!!!!
