    So I ordered a 3 pack from Ron trying to find a replacement for the rub I've been using for almost 6 years. Well I finally got to a weekend where I could give them a test as well as trying out a Cherry/Chipotle sauce that sounded phenominal for pork.. So without further ado...
    Here are the Ribs slathered and rubbed down coming to room temp before going in the smoker...

    In order top to bottom... Hint of Houston, Original, In The House

    I started to take pics as I was foiling them and managed to get one shot that turned out.. This is the rack with Hint of Houston on it

    Fresh out of the smoker for a brief rest while I get the rest of dinner ready to go.

    In The House with Stubbs Spicy

    Original with the Cherry/Chipotle Sauce on the left, Hint of Houston with Stubbs original

    Wifes Plate, one of each with cornbread and scalloped potatoes

    My plate with a couple more of the Cherry/Chipotle glazed.
    All in all I think they came out GREAT.. Kudo's to Ron for turning out an exceptional product. I think I'm stuck between the Original and Hint of Houston for a new favorite with a definite lean towards the Houston over the Original... For those that don't like a rub that is overpoweringly salty you have to try his rubs...

    Forgot the Cherry/Chipotle recipe since I modified the original...

    1/3c Smucker Cherry Preserves Would probably bump this up to 1/2c unless I find a better preserve with more cherry flavor.
    1/3c Ketchup
    1/4-1/2tsp Thyme (Use sparingly it can over power the sauce)
    1/2tsp Ground Cumin
    3-4Tbsp Cider Vinegar (To Taste)
    1 Chipotle in Adobo
    1tsp Adobo Sauce
    1/4c Brown Sugar
    2Tbsp Dark Amber Maple Syrup After some consideration and consultation with some others I couldn't taste the maple come through so would probably just drop this.
    1/4c Water
    1/2tsp Smoke Paprika
    1Tbsp Honey
    2Tbsp Butter
    1Tsp Minced Onion
    1Tsp Minced Garlic

    Combine all together in a sauce pan and simmer until done...
    Remove from heat and let cool slightly... Put in food processor or blender and blend til smooth.. 10 or so 5 sec pulses... Strain remaining chunks and bottle...
    Let sit in fridge over night at least so flavors meld together
