EAT Barbecue: Championship BBQ Rib Recipe

Posted by Jason on May 29, 2013

EAT BarbecueEver since the EAT Barbecue sauces and rubs made their way into our warehouse last week, I’ve been anxious to give them a test run. Their arrival just happened to coincide with Memorial Day weekend, which also happened to be a rare off-weekend for our competition barbecue team, Burnt Finger BBQ. Since I’m always looking for reasons to fire up the smoker, we decided to use the long weekend to put the EAT Barbecue products to use and see how they perform first-hand.

The EAT Barbecue sauces and rubs are the product of Rod Gray, pitmaster for the Pellet Envy competition barbecue team. The team is comprised of Rod and his wife Sherri. The duo began competing in 2001, and since that time have managed to rack up an astronomical 50+ Grand Championships. Pellet Envy has spent 10 straight years as a nationally ranked barbecue team, was the KCBS national Team of the Year in 2009 and runner-up Team of the Year in 2010, and has been named the best cook in the country for pork ribs and beef brisket. That’s a pretty substantial resume, and the release of their new EAT Barbecue products has only strengthened it. Essentially they have bottled Pellet Envy’s championship recipes, as these are the exact BBQ rubs and BBQ sauces they use on the competition circuit week-in and week-out.

Posted by Jason on March 28, 2011

C-Dub's RubsWhen thinking of Seattle, BBQ normally isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Most people probably conjure up images of Starbucks coffee, rainy afternoons, or an endless crowd of grungy flannel shirts. While each of those have certainly cemented their place in the city’s ever changing pop-culture, we’ve got our taste buds locked on a new line of BBQ rub that’s looking to re-brand the upper Northwest as the new BBQ hotbed.

The Monthly Rubdown: Pork Barrel BBQ

Posted by Jason on March 21, 2011

Pork Barrel BBQIssuing a proclamation of “monumental flavor” is a tall order for any product to live up to. Only a brand hailing from our nation’s capital that’s been produced and distributed by ex-politicians would issue such a promise to the citizens of the United States. Luckily these politicians are originally from Missouri, so they’ve got a true barbecue agenda that can’t be swayed by lobbyist kickbacks or political bribery. We’ve been sampling their products for a few weeks now, and we can confidently confirm that you can take these politicians for their word with their Pork Barrel BBQ products!

The Monthly Rubdown: Bacon Hot Sauce

Posted by Jason on February 24, 2011

Bacon Hot SauceHave you ever thought to yourself, “This (insert food here) would taste so much better with bacon and hot sauce”? I know that’s something that runs through my head daily. If there are two things in this world that can something better (check that…3 things, because BBQ Makes Everything Better), it’s bacon and hot sauce. Many times over I have put both of these on sandwiches, soups, salads, steaks, pork chops, chicken, eggs….this list goes on. In fact, this morning for breakfast I had a breakfast burrito with bacon and hot sauce, for lunch I had a turkey club sandwich with bacon and hot sauce, and for dinner…well, I had boneless buffalo wings, but they definitely would have been better if I had wrapped them in bacon. Point being here, how could Bacon Mania not yield a product that combines both of these intoxicating culinary marvels? The answer…it did!
