Private Selection Texas BBQ Signature Rub Review

I am usually one of those people who boil their ribs before they put them on the grill with some BBQ sauce. I do this for a couple of reasons, I do not have very much patience when it comes to cooking. I cannot stand to watch the grill. If I am grilling, I am usually also cooking something else at the same time and running inside and outside is not my thing so boiling them first cuts down the time greatly. 
Well, that all changed when I was given the opportunity to try out some Kroger Private Selection Signature Rub. I checked out the flavor selection and decided to go with the Texas BBQ Rub and I picked up three racks of pork loin back ribs also because we were having our daughter and her boyfriend over for dinner while we were camping with my parents on the weekend. 

Now, I remind you that I have never baked ribs before, I have always boiled them so all this rub stuff was a first for me but it was all just so simple. Really, I just opened the ribs, sprinkled about 1/3 of the Private Selection Texas BBQ Rub on each rack of ribs then wrapped them in aluminum foil and put them in the oven on 350 degrees for about four hours. Now, these ribs were literally falling off the bone, just how I like them.

And when camping you have a tiny little oven (which in ten years I have only ever used to bake biscuits) and I wasn't sure what to temperature to bake them on or for how long to bake them. These three racks of ribs took up the whole oven, I even had to squish them to get the door to close. The professional cooks on television say that the perfect rib meat should not fall off the bone but to me, the perfect rib meat does fall off the bone and these were perfect and my family agreed.

This Texas BBQ Rub had a little bit of a kick to it but it was not too spicy but the flavor was just amazing. It had tons of great flavor.

  1. Looks yummy.. I never try eat this before :D

  2. Yum! I haven't heard of this brand yet! I'll have to look for it and give it a try :)

  3. I have heard of private selection but never get the meats in the sealed bags like this I have always had bad ones but I may try this one because it looks good.

  4. I LOVE ANYTHING BBQ ! Especially love trying new rubs, this one sounds great !

  5. we have the same technique. steak, ribe eye, spare ribs or baby back ribs, i all boil them first before heating them on charcoal grill.

    Okay, i will try this BBQ rub. Four hours of free hands is tempting!

  6. Oh, I think my husband would be in heaven! It looks great!

  7. My mouth is watering! this looks so great!

  8. Yes, Texans use a rub never a sauce to bar-b-que with. Personally I could not do the foil due to an allergy but oh to cook them on the smoker nice and slow will get the same amazing result. And yes we grill, it does many things. 1. does not heat up the house in 100+ degree summers 2. cooks a weeks worth of meat at one sitting 3. provides plenty of time to sit an gab with friends as the cooker does all the work. Yes, Texas lazy summer days is the life to lead!

  9. I could totally go for cooking up some ribs for the guys around here (bet they'd like it too). :)
