BIG POPPA SEASONINGS: RUB RUNDOWN
Posted on Monday, July 30th, 2018
Fact: Big Poppa Smokers (BPS) rubs and seasonings have played a part in winning every major competition on the professional barbecue circuit (not many other seasoning brands can say the same).
After years of success on the competition trail, many people realized that these rubs also translated well into the backyard and the kitchen… quickly becoming the “secret ingredient” for many at-home cooks. We all know those people who never want to give up their secret BBQ recipes; we have a feeling that many of them are BPS customers.
Whether you’re a backyard BBQ lover or a food fanatic, we’re sure you’ll fall in love with the flavors that Big Poppa crafted. All 10 of BPS rubs and seasonings provide a unique flavor profile on their own, and are even better when mixed together. To create your own personal flavor profile, simply blend BPS rubs and seasonings together. Half the fun is experimentation! Each one of BPS Rubs and Seasonings has been carefully crafted to bring out the best flavors of meats, veggies and side dishes.

For those of you who require more detailed info, here’s the rundown on Big Poppa Smokers Rubs & Seasonings:
Double Secret Steak Rub: Steak results are so good with this rub, it’s got people asking, “What’s your secret?” The blend of sea salt, garlic, onions, chili, citrus and two secret ingredients bring out the most in cuts of steak. This is a rub you’re going to want to have for your next dinner or backyard cookout. Pairs great with any beef cut (we also hear that it’s great on mashed potatoes).
Money Championship Rub: Widely used on the competition BBQ circuit, this rub has proven it’s championship potential. Money rub offers more prevalent flavors making it great for any BBQ recipe – pork, beef, chicken and it’s even great on seafood. If you’re searching for more color and a wide flavor profile, Money Rub is for you.
Happy Ending Finishing Rub: A blend of spices with salt and pepper that really wakes up your meat at the end of your cook; Hit your sliced meat with a shake of Happy Ending for additional flavor. Happy Ending Rub pairs great with beef, pork and chicken.
Desert Gold Seasoning: One of the most versatile seasonings in Big Poppa Smokers line of rubs and seasonings (and a staff favorite). Desert Gold Seasoning gives you a West Coast feel with it’s blend of Mediterranean spices, sesame, ginger, and lemon. Desert Gold Seasoning can be used in pastas, soups, veggies and any cut of meat – it’s perfect on chicken, fish, and pork.
Sweet Money Championship Rub: The #1 rub for pork and ribs in the competition barbecue circuit, but some say it’s even better in the backyard. Sweet Money starts off savory and sweet and finishes off with a kick of heat. The secret is in the large rocks of high-quality sea salt and granulated honey. The rocks of salt melt into meat creating a savory finish. Sweet Money Rub is great on any cut of pork, but we have seen Big Poppa use it on chicken as well.
Cash Cow Beef Rub: A beefy blend of spices, salts and rendered beef fat and beef stock. Cash Cow Beef Rub adds a kick of bold, beefy taste to any recipe. It’s great on hamburgers, steaks, chops, brisket and it makes a great base for broth. Cash Cow Rub is great on it’s own, but can also be used in conjunction with Money Rub, Little Louie’s Salt or Double Secret Steak Rub to add more salt and dimension to the flavor profile.
Jallelujah Jalapeno Salt: Everything you need in a seasoning salt with the addition of a bit of jalapeño heat. Jallelujah Jalapeño Salt offers a southwestern feel with it’s savory blend of spices, salt, garlic, and jalapeño. Jallelujah is just what you need when you want to add slight heat and big flavor to a recipe. The BPS Team puts it on everything so you know it’s good. Jallelujah Salt pairs great with eggs, pastas, seafood, veggies, chicken and any cut of meat.
Jallelujah Bacon Jalapeno Rub: The same savory flavor of Jallelujah Jalapeño Salt with the addition of hints of maple and bacon. Jallelujah Bacon Rub was blended for use on pork recipes – such as ribs, pork loin and pork chops.
Little Louie’s Garlic Salt with Black Pepper: A savory blend of salt, pepper and garlic. Little Louie’s Garlic Salt makes a great base rub for any recipe. It’s great on vegetables, fish, chicken, beef, pork, and side dishes. Little Louie’s is a seasoning salt you want two bottles of: one to keep next to the grill and one to keep next to the stove.
Cuckoo Racha Spicy Chili Dust: Big Poppa’s take on dried Sriracha sauce. Cuckoo Racha Chili Dust is a spicy blend of salts, vinegar, citrus and peppers that pairs great with chicken, pork, fish and our customers claim that it’s extra special on Bloody Mary’s. Throw out your cayenne pepper, Cuckoo Racha Chili Dust is here to stay.
