My Wife now says that I am her Hero…

I just purchased your rub and sauce recipe from your website and thanks to you my wife now says that I am her hero. P.S. She wants me to smoke something almost every weekend and I always have to make the special sauce and rub to go with it. – Bill


I have never had so many pats on the back…

I ordered both of your recipes several weeks back and finally got around to using them on some ribs and chicken for our family get together and boy was I feeling good after that! I have never had so many pats on the back and folks asking me when I was going to open my own restaurant. Jeff I know it was your recipes that made all the difference. Thanks for sharing. –Edwin


A Little History on the Famous Top Secret Recipes

I developed these recipes several years ago, intending to package them for local and online marketing.

However, because of the red tape involved with interstate sales of packaged food items (I am a very non-red-tape kind of guy), I decided to offer the recipes as a set through the website and leave it at that.

That is like Colonel Sanders offering to sell you his secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices!

I worked on these rub and sauce recipes for several years in an effort to create recipes that surpassed AMAZING, adding a smidgen of this and a dash of that until they became PERFECT!

I have tested these recipes on people from just about everywhere–Texas, North Carolina, Missouri, Kansas City, and even across the globe, and I always get the same response:

“These are the best ribs I have ever eaten!”


You've read the testimonials – you want the recipes – You feel good about supporting the website.

    How long does your sauce last after making? I made a large batch and want to know how long to keep the extra. Thanks!

    • Jeff Phillips April 3, 2014 at 3:00 pm - Reply

      I have kept it in the fridge in a lidded container for 2-3 months and it still looked and tasted good. With the tomatoes and the lemon juice, it has enough acidity to maintain for a while.

      It would probably last longer than 2-3 months but the flavor will start to degrade at some point.

    Your rub sounds great. But is it gluten free? My wife has celiac which means we do not eat any food with gluten in it.

      My rub recipe does not call for any ingredients that contain gluten and can be considered gluten-free.

    What would be the best spice to add a lil more bite to your rub… It’s good but it would be great with a lil more bite (spicy) added to it for my preference, please let me know…

    thank you

    • Jeff Phillips October 14, 2013 at 9:01 am - Reply

      If you are wanting some good heat added to it, I would consider some ground habanero pepper. You might be able to find this locally but if not, it can readily be ordered online at, The Spice House and numerous other spice supply houses.

      Depending on how much heat you are wanting, start with a small amount (1/4 tsp or so) and just work up from there until you get it to suit your own tastes.

    Do your methods of smoking include smoker grills such as the Traeger and Yoder pellet smokers?

    • Jerry De La Cruz October 11, 2013 at 5:29 pm - Reply

      What did he tell you I have a traeger as well

      • Jim Hershberger October 14, 2013 at 10:10 am - Reply

        Jerry, I did not receive a reply but have determined that most of what he relates to anything other than direct flame (searing) applies to pellet smoking.  As pellet smoking becomes more mainstream I’m sure more will be written about it.  The main point I think is low and slow.

    To those of us that have purchased your rub and sauce recipies in the past and missed out on the added bonus PDF version of the Smoking Basics eCourse, is it possible to have this forwarded without having to purcase the recipies again. By the way, your rub is the only one I use whenever I smoke meat and samples of your sauce have been taken home by many a person after tasting at our dinner table. Let me know about the eCourse. Love the web site. Great info and recipies.

    You may want to check your recipes and comments for this all to common grammatical mistake.  You have used the wrong spelling of the adjective coarse: when describing grid characteristics of pepper, salt, etc. you have referred to them as course.

    See as follows: 

    The adjective coarse means rough, common, inferior, or indecent. The noun course can mean several things, including path, playing field, mode of behavior, unit of study, and onward movement. As a verb, course means to move swiftly. "Originally, it is true, coarse and course were the same word. But the difference in spelling and in meaning emerged in the 18th century, and the words have long since gone their separate ways."

    (Bryan A. Garner, Garner's Modern American Usage. OUP, 2009)

    • Jeff Phillips August 22, 2013 at 1:57 pm - Reply

      Mark, we all have quirks and that one is my own. I know the difference very well but, I don’t always catch it when I accidentally use the wrong one. The spell check does not catch it either.

      I don’t lose sleep over it but yes, you are absolutely correct;)

  11. jeff August 14, 2013 at 10:26 am - Reply

    Love the rub!!! have not tried the sauce though.

    Just ran out of it and lost the recipe in my last move. 

    It would be worth it to buy again but am hoping and I get it resent. 

    Know you are busy. Thanks if you can help.

    For everybody else who has not got the recipe – do it. I only ordered to support he site and did not expect anything better than my own. I was happy to find the stuff was much better than what i have been using.

  13. Dave S. July 13, 2013 at 4:04 am - Reply

    For those apprehensive about a purchase from Jeff, do not hesitate,  This stuff is the real deal.The sauce is like no other I have found.  Sure, I have made few mods to please my family, but the basic recipe is intact.  Want to put some meat in a smoker?  This is the way to go.

    Jeff's rub is likely the best I have ever used   Simply that good.  Makes one fan-damn-tastic beer can/drunken chicken.  Put some of the rub under the chicken skin, put a bunch of it on the topside of the chicken. Place a pan to catch the drippings under said chicken, wait a while, and make one of the most amazing red gravies you will ever know

    TY, Jeff Phillips

    Hi Jeff,

    I just bought my husband a smoker, we are very new at this smoking thing.  I was just recently told by me doctor that I have to go completely gluten-free because of an auto-immune disease that I have.  So my question is, is your rub or bbq sauce gluten-free?  I would very much like to try this, but wanted to ask you about the gluten first.

    Thanks! Tara

    Like many others I've been purchasing rubs and sauces from the stores and have watched tv shows where the cooks have made their own. Have always wanted to make my own sauce. Was not sure where to start and what all to put in it. I purchased your rub and sauce recipies, while I get a feel of making the rubs and sauces, these are the best I have ever had. They more than exceeded my expetations. Will not go back to store bought rubs and sauces again.

    Last weekend I did not have the time to smoke the ribs. So I cooked them low and slow on the grill. I had never useed mustard on the meat before and was a little hesitant, but tried it. Then put the rub on and finished it with the sauce. The ribs turned out great!

    I recently ordered your rub and sauce recipes. I almost felt obligated to do so because I have learned so much about smoking meats from you and this website over the last 12 months. I hope that this small contribution will continue one of the most useful and informative websites on the internet. 

    For the last three years, I have purchased rubs and sauces at the local grocery stores. I always wondered what it would be like to make my own sauce and rub and whether it would be worth the trouble. After implementing your rub and sauce recipes, all of my food selections have been significantly upgraded from good to excellent. There is no reason for me to continue to purchase prepared rubs and sauces. Your recipes are the best!!

    I would like to personally thank you for providing such a wealth of information that is so useful to the ordinary smoker like myself. 

    With kind regards.

    I smoked an 8 # Boston Butt for Easter. I stuffed it full of garlic and put a good coating if your rub on. Stuck it in the fridge overnight. Put it in the smoker at about 240 with a good heavy smoke ( I use pecan) for 5 hours. I then put it in a pan and covered it with onions, celery, and bell pepper. Put the lid on the pan and cooked it for about 2 hours, took it out and let it rest another half hour. Wow! Give it a try.

I have sed your rub on just about any hthing i could think of, it is just great, you did a great job making this rub,

      The ingredients are very common and most likely, you will have them already in your pantry and spice rack. If not, any store will carry them. Let me know if you have more questions before you purchase.

    I just wanted to let you know, i bought the rub and sauce not too long after i found this site. I am telling you, both of them are to die for. I have tried all kinds of recipes on your site and have NEVER been dissappointed. I am older and was getting tired of coooking since have done it most of my life, but now i experiment with smoking and it is an all new adventure. My husband said i might as well get rid of the kitchen stove. LOL told him still used the over to bake. I don't think i have cooked any meat inside since i found this site.  Next i am going to try the chicken cordon bleu. I made the bacon wrapped chicken breasts and they were so juicy the juice just ran out when i cut into them, even after letting them sit. I guess i better stop. Thanks, Jeff for this wonderful site.

    Drinking a couple of beers on a Sat nite and just read the testimonial link in your Cornish Hens e-mail (thanks for them!).  I am impressed and will make the purchase sometime in the future.  I have been unemployed the last 4 months and now have some time to focus on things.  I will pick a job up on 1 April (no joke!) for the next 6 months and $18.95 is a very reasonable price to pay.  Just want to tell you I appreciate the e-mails.  All because a colleague gave me your website!

      As the recipes are designed and written, they are both a sweet and spicy blend.. somewhat spicy but counter balanced nicely by the sweet. The ingredients can easily be adjusted to make it mild in flavor and I am always happy to help folks adjust the ingredients perfectly to their liking.

    I bought your recipe for dry rub and BBQ sauce about six months ago.  It is very-very good.  This past weekend I smoked some wild hog spareribs(?).  They are not as big as farm raised.  Using your dry rub and making some additions, such as ground dry jalapeno and ground oregano.  I raise and dry both of these items.  I did not use any sauce on these ribs—-I was afraid the sauce would get in the way of the taste.  The taste was very good with the rub and no sauce.

    Hey Jeff,

    Do you have a quick fix for the brown sugar lumps in the rub?  I use this all the time and it is awesome.  So is your bbq sauce.  Thanks!

      You can put the brown sugar and the paprika in a food processor to eradicate the lumps. You can also place the rub ingredients into a ziploc bag and then work out the lumps with your fingers if you don't have a food processor. Maybe others will have some great tips for this.

      Paul Kirk, The Baron of BBQ, has recipes for rubs with brown sugar and he always recommends drying the brown sugar by putting 1 pound brown sugar in a bowl with 1/4 cup corn starch and beating it with a mixer for 3 minutes or so until thoroughly dried out.  Then it will free flow and not clump after blending with other spices.

    I bought your rub and sauce recipe a couple years ago. I have the rub recipe still but lost the sauce recipe. Is there anyway I can get it re-emailed to me? I can give you all my information from when I first bought it.

    What is the quantity of the sauce and the dry rub.

      Just to clarify, these are the recipes for my rub and sauce rather than actual food products. They should arrive in PDF format to your email inbox just as soon as you order and are the best thing this side of heaven. This is what we do to support the website and the newsletter. Please let me know if you have further questions;)
