Lawry's rub question.

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by rdevous, Aug 25, 2009.

  1. Has anyone tried "Lawry's Perfect Blend Seasoned Rub For Pork"? [​IMG] I saw it in BJ's yesterday. It was $8.59 for 27 oz. Looked interesting with all the spices in it including orange peel. They had pork Boston butts for $1.20 a pound. Two to a package...averaging about 7.5 to 8 pounds each.

    btw it is the all purpose seasoning.
    and thier lantana beans is to die for. I can't get enough of this stuff when it turns cold out. replace ham with pulled pork.....oh yummy..i'm getting hungry just talking about it.
    sorta a weird web site but it works..gotta call to order.
    hope u and anyone else trys it. u will be throughing points at me...LOL

    I have never used it either but I found a new rub made by old bay and it's really good and even a bit spicer then the regular seafood seasonings.

    There are many fine rubs out there but for me I prefer the fun of making my own.

    I agree with ShooterRick. I make my own as well. Don't get me wrong I have bought plenty of store bought rubs in my day and they are all great in some way or another.

    I generally like to use my rub that I've been perfecting for around 5 yrs now. It's real versatile and I can use it on almost anything. That's where the real fun is at.

    I always use the same ingredients in my rub but I like to mix it up a bit from time to time to see if there is something I can tweak it with.

    You can find real joy in making your own.

    Now to answer your question. I've never used Lawry's Perfect Blend before but I'll probably give it a try.

    I seen that old bay rub at wal-mart last weekend and almost picked some up. I wish I would have now.

    I bought one at BJ's along with a 3 pack of BBRs 2 weeks ago. I prefer the Lawry's better than the Mcormicks. I will finish using this batch, but from now on, I'm going to make my own. Both have too much salt for my taste.

    I've never used the pork rub, but, we like the chicken/poultry blend...Lawry's has been around forever...I'd give it a shot if I felt a bit adventurous.

    Love the chicken and poultry blend bit I have never tried the pork rub. I don't think I've seen it around here. I'd like to give it a try.

    I have been using Lawry's pork rub for about 6 years. I cook only with gas. I have a Carolina Cooker. This rub when used as recommended on the back of the label gives superior taste and texture to the babyback ribs I cook.  I cook as little as three racks at a time and as many as 42 racks at one time. The results are perfect ribs with this rub. Most of the time the ribs are eaten without any rib sauce.

    I have been using this rub for over 5 years . The general response to this rub has been very good to excellent. I cook my ribs in a Carolina Cooker with gas. I haven't smoked food for the past 20 yrs.

    I recently spoke to Lawry's and they told me this rub has been reformulated with a new name. Basil,citrus and garlic . I haven't tried this new formula.

    I'm curious if anyone has tried the new formulation they are calling basil citrus and garlic. I've recently used up the last of my perfect pork blend and it's everyone's favorite on smoked chicken drumsticks. I wonder how the new flavor compares.
