Thanks for the welcome. It was a fantastic event but we just got lucky as the other teams were class acts too.

What sort of rub are you looking for?

Yup I have several photos I'll upload here shortly We did the four compulsory meats ie Chicken, Brisket, Rids and pork shoulder.

We didn't place as high as we would have liked but everyone was a bit dissapointed with the raw product. It was impossible to pull the membrane so getting enough smoke into them without drying was tough at best. We placed fourth in ribs.

For pork ribs I don't often foil and try and stick to a 2-2-1 rule in comps. Not having fil helps keep the bark dry but you also run the risk of losing moisture. We tend to keep it very simple with rubs and never add salt.

Trim them well and stick in the ice box for an hour before rubbing them with a mixture of
Paprika
Black pepper
White pepper
garlic powder
Allspice
As you rub this in add a bit of fresh lemon juice betwen coatings.
Most people rub once but try it twice and see how you like it.

KEEP THE SUGAR OUT OF THE RUB!!!!!

Thanks Dr.
The last rub I was given used brown sugar, or cane sugar, in the rub. Why do you say not to use suagr...I always thought it was essential to rubs...however I haven't a clue about rubs anyway.

The finishing sauce should be sweet enough without adding more sugar.

Hey these are just my tips other thoughts/suggestions may vary.lol

When you are bbqing the ribs etc do you spray anything on them during the cooking..."wittdog" here sprays his with apple juice halfway through the cooking.

I could live without the sugar for sure.

A friend of mine marinates his ribs in different powders and a half litre of coke. They taste great but must be riddled in calories.
