BBQ Brotherhood

Since acquiring my Big Green Egg, I’ve discovered that BBQ’ers are like a brotherhood.  Folks will talk for hours about their rig, their favorite rub(s), and regale you with tales of their latest effort.

I recently changed positions at work and as a way of saying thanks to my old team, I cooked 15lbs. of pork butt and 9.5lbs. of brisket.  This fed my whole team as well as a few consultants that we’ve been working with of late.  One of the consultants was obviously a member of the brotherhood, because he took a great interest in the BBQ and all of the finer points mentioned previously.  Turns out he’s a Texan who loves to cook BBQ as well.

Imagine my surprise last week when he walked into my office with a care package from his favorite purveyor of BBQ and BBQ accessories, The Goode Company out of Houston, TX.  He brought me a sampler of rubs and said, “From one BBQ’er to another”.  Pretty cool!

Well tonight I used some of it for the first time.  I used the Fowl Rub for some chicken breasts that we BBQ’d.  I also did a pan of sliced potatoes with butter & onions.  Turned out great and I look forward to trying the other 3 rubs in the sampler real soon.

  2. […] a 7 lb. beef brisket on for lunch today and sandwiches the rest of the week.  I used a rub that a co-worker gave me a while back.  It’s called Brisket Rub and it’s from the Goode Company in Texas.  […]
