  • Try using Surf's Up Hawaiian Rub the same way for a sweet/salty verison
  • Don't like Carolina Mustard Sauce, use The All-American!

  • Don't want any sweetness with the rub? Try out Texas Crutch

Common Questions

1. This is a lot of meat? How do I reheat it?

I like to reheat it in a frying pan for smaller portions. If it is a lot for many people, I will put in a crock pot. Instead of a broth of sorts, I like to use Dr. Pepper or Coke to keep it hydrated.
