How This Amateur BBQer Is Beating Professional Pitmasters
Ashburn, VA: There is a new BBQ rub professional pitmasters are not happy with. This is because the rub is allowing amateur BBQ’ers to become a competitive threat, overnight. Here is how we learned about the rub.
Cindy’s husband and his buddies wanted a reason to hang out more so they formed a BBQ team in Ashburn.
However, there was a problem. Cindy’s husband and his BBQ team were focused on drinking more than competing so they ranked near the bottom of every competition. After a while, Cindy started to get a little upset. “These competitions take time and money. I wanted him to enjoy his time with his friends but if we were going to spend all this money on competitions, I wanted him to have something to show for it” Cindy said. So Cindy did a little research for her husband.
While doing her BBQ research, Cindy came across a video he found on T-Roy Cooks (A popular youtube Pitmaster). T-Roy was raving about some new rub called Bald Buck. T-Roy loved it so much that he was giving out 50 free bottles of it because he felt it was a game-changer.
Cindy threw her hat in and got lucky. A few days later, her bottle of rub came and she tossed it in her husband’s BBQ competition bag. Weeks later, Cindy’s husband was at a BBQ competition. They were competing in chicken thighs however, one of their members forgot to bring a couple of key ingredients they typically used for their chicken rub. Cindy’s husband went in his bag to see what he had, saw the Bald Buck rub, and thought to himself “What the hell. Let’s see what happens”.
Cindy’s husband used the rub. His team came in 3rd. Prior to that, his highest rank in any BBQ competition was 42nd. In the next competition, Cindy’s husband competed in thighs again. He used the same rub and fixed some food presentation issues. The team got 1st. Shortly thereafter, Cindy’s husband competed in thighs again and his team got 2nd.
By changing up his rub and fixing presentation issues, Cindy’s husband was beating professional pitmasters, overnight. Cindy’s husband let her taste what he was making to win the competition.
“I Took A Bite. It Tasted So Good I Started Cussing At The Chicken.”

“It was the best chicken I’ve ever had. That’s big because I rarely compliment his cooking.” Cindy said. Since Cindy’s husband has been winning, Cindy has been more supportive of his hobby and he is currently finding ways to take his ribs to the next level, using Bald Buck.
After hearing Cindy’s story, I tried the rub myself. I had some friends over and I used the rub on smoked chicken legs and boneless, skinless thighs. It was absolutely delicious. It was so good, I told my boss I wasn’t sure if we should publish this article. When he asked why I said I was concerned Cindy’s husband could lose his competitive edge. However, the real reason is I don’t want my friends to know my new secret.
