One of the new up-and-coming stars in the BBQ sauce and rub scene is Shane Draper of Draper’s BBQ. He has embraced social media as a primary platform for marketing his sauce and rub, and it has been a resounding success! After reading several reviews of his products (including reviews done by Kevin Kelly of Kevin’s BBQ Joints and Wilfred Reinke a.k.a. the Oshawa Ogre), I knew this was a product I had to try. Shane was gracious enough to send me a bottle of his Smokin’ Sauce and A.P. Rub to review.
It’s really amazing how the BBQ world has really embraced Twitter. Who would’ve ever thought that we could talk so much, establish close ties, and build friendships in 140 characters or less? That continually amazes me!
Let me start this off by saying… my in-laws rock! While I had to go in to the office to work this past Saturday, they, along with my wife, worked out in our yard and got it in decent shape. For all the hard work that they did, I had to pay them back somehow. And how does someone with a passion for BBQ pay back a favor? Why, with BBQ, of course! And luckily for me, the requested meat was ribs!
With the beautiful weather that arrived here in the Carolinas last week, how could I not say no to firing up the smoker? There was a pork butt in the freezer calling my name. This was the perfect opportunity to try out Willie’s Hog Dust. Willie was gracious enough to send me bottles of his original, spicy, and sweet blend rubs. I decided to go with the original blend this time around.
A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a BBQ Brethren Trade. I was lucky enough to receive two bottles of sauce and two bottles of rub. Tonight, my wife asked me to grill some chicken, so I decided to use one of the rubs I received.
On Tuesday, I was fortunate enough to receive a test sample of hot wing rub from Allegra Klett-Wilson of C-Dub’s BBQ Rub (@CDubsBBQRub on Twitter). Today, I finally had an opportunity to give this rub a test drive. I was told that this is a spicy rub, and I was certainly not disappointed.
