I became hooked on BBQ competitions since 2009 and have been blessed to win many awards against some of the top BBQ cookers in the country. After trying a number of great BBQ rubs and sauces, I just could not find a rub with the right flavor profile. So, I decided to create my own rubs and sauces. After winning many competitions with the rub and hearing compliments from friends and family, I decided to make my rubs and sauces available to the backyard cooker. Please give them a try and let me know what you think by posting on my Facebook page or leave a comment on my blog.

Riley's Red BBQ Rub

Riley’s Red Rub

This a great all-purpose rub. It’s not too sweet and not to spicy. The perfect balance of spices giving your BBQ a great taste and color sure to impress your family and friends. Riley’s Red Rub is great on beef, chicken, pork, fish and even vegetables. This rub has helped win dozens of BBQ competitions awards including 5th place in pork at the 2013 American Royal BBQ competition. (16 oz bag)

Riley’s Triple R Sauce

A BBQ sauce 7 years in the making. This sauce is a perfect blend of sweet and spices giving Triple R Sauce its one-of-a-kind taste. It’s great on chicken, beef, and pork or on the side as dipping sauce. (16 oz jar)

Riley's Sweet Pecan BBQ Rub

Riley’s Sweet Pecan

Just like the name says this rub has a mild pecan taste with just the right about of sweet. This rub has received rave reviews from family and friends as well as helping the CRC BBQ team win on the competition trail.
