16 of the Best BBQ Sauce and Rub Recipes

Yay, let’s talk about one of my favorite things in the whole wide world…….BBQ #drooling
As soon as the temps stay above 60 with no rain, we live outside and start throwing everything on the grill. Meat, veggies, fruit, you name it. I pretty much think just about everything tastes better cooked over a fire.

Except maybe mac and cheese.
The cheese would stick, and the noodles would fall through the grates.
Ya, that would big a big mess!
BUT, most everything else is fair game!!
We all know that grilling season really kicks off on Memorial day right? Then we have Father’s Day, and then we are smack in the middle of summer. So, being the awesome blogger that I am, #SoHumble I thought I would throw together a list of a few of my favorite BBQ sauces and rubs to help you get your BBQ grub on. These are MUST make people!!
So make a list, and check it twice because I ALWAYS miss ingredients, and get your grill on!!

  6. I have had you in my Pinterest folder under BBQ Sauce for a while but never really read anything until today. Hubs is making bacon on the smoker! Can't wait. i am collecting sauces & rubs for him so that he can make his own. Smoking in the winter for us happens but have to move it to the covered front porch. Gotta love western Washington!

  7. We need to fix out smoker because homemade bacon sounds amazing! We had what we called the Hillbilly Cookshack at our old place which was just 2 x 4s with a tarp stapled to them haha but we haven't set anything up here. We have a big ol' Traeger now so we can't move it. I hope you enjoy the rubs and sauces!!
