|This is a very interesting rib
rub. I recently have tried it on ribs, and chicken. It was perfect
on the ribs. I thought it was great on the chicken. I cooked the best
chicken I ever cooked using this rub.
On the label, of the bottle of
rub, is a list of very impressive contest
I don't know if Bubba knows who I am or if he remembers meeting me in
1995 at the Raytown, MO contest. Our paths just have never crossed,
since that day. That was an exciting day for me because I got to
watch Mike Scrutchfield and Bubba preparing their entry's in that
At that time Bubba was cooking with Mike on a team they called RE/MAX
is Cookin' Now. They were the Reserve Grand Champs that day.
They won a lot of contest as
RE/MAX is Cookin' Now
and in 1996 changed the name of the team to "Top Secret" and kept on
winning. (Be sure and visit the link I just posted above.) Later
on Bubba started cooking on his own and won a lot of awards.
Anyway, it was in 1999 that
Mike Scrutchfield gave to everyone, on the
BBQ Forum, the great
"Best Ribs In the Universe" rib recipe. It is now known simply as
BRITU is a great rub. Some people who don't like salt
complain it's too salty. The answer is don't put so much salt in
it. I think salt is good for you because it makes food taste good.
Anyway, that's why they make blood pressure medicine.
Another problem with BRITU is people tend to put too much on it and
don't pay attention to the recipe.
Then there is the mystery ingredient in the BRITU recipe. It's
listed as chili powder. But which chili powder is the best chili
powder just what chili powder did Mike use in the BRITU.
After the RE/MAX team, Bubba went on to win a lot of contests by
So now we have this "Top Secret" rib rub and what's in it? The
ingredients sound like BRITU and it kinda looks like it. It tastes
like BRITU in a way. It may have nothing to do with BRITU, or it may
have. I do know, but I know I like Bubba's rub.
I'm sure that over the years this rub has Bubba's own unique ideas in
I will tell you, after using it, that I think it's better then any of
the batches of the BRITU I ever mixed up. So maybe it doesn't have
anything to do with BRITU.
This is good stuff. There is an even more compelling reason to buy
It's a great rub and it's packaged in a really great bottle. Buy it
for the bottle if nothing else. Why do I
like the bottle so much?
It's the holes in the top of the shaker cap. This bottle has
little holes in the cap. You have to shake the bottle a lot to get
some of the rub to come out. You will probably get tired of
shaking this bottle before you apply too much of the rub to whatever you
are using it on. You see most packaged rubs I have bought have
these big holes in the cap and it's real easy to shake out too much
So buy this rub, because I am sure you will like it and you will have
this great bottle with the small holes in the cap.

PS. What's Mike Scrutchfield going now?
Well, I just
talked to Mike today and he is really doing well in his
Real Estate mailing business.
He also says that he is not connected with Bubba's Rub. Please don't call or email him unless your a good Real Estate agent
wanting to do business with him. He is real busy.
