Over the past couple of years, I’ve read lots of comments about the products from Dizzy Pig BBQ. Now I always thought to myself, “How good could it be?”. I’ve been through a number of grocery store rubs & grill seasonings and they all seem to be pretty much the same. So it was with low expectations that I placed my first order with the folks at Dizzy Pig.
However, to say they exceeded my expectations is an understatement. They have a variety of products targeted at different foods. I ordered a gift pack of 3 of their products. When the package arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find a sample of many of their other products. Here’s a rundown of my first order.
- Dizzy Pig’s Dizzy Dust (available in regular or coarse grind) – This is a great all around rub that works well on pork, chicken or beef. I really like it on pork butt or ribs.
- Shakin’ The Tree – This rub is very versatile. It has become my standard rub for chicken, but I’ve also used it as an accent to everything from fish to jalapeno poppers.
- Raisin’ the Steaks – As the name implies, this is great for beef. I like this on steaks and brisket. It’s sort of a variation on a Montreal Seasoning.
Dizzy Pig makes a number of other rubs that I haven’t tried yet, but if these three are any indication of what I can expect you can bet I’ll be placing another order soon. You should do the same.
