Review: Dizzy Pig BBQ Rub

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.
