Remember Stubb's BBQ this Memorial Day! #review + Prize Pack #Giveaway


Thank you to Stubb's BBQ for the samples. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

C.B. Stubblefield had his first opportunity to cook for large amounts of people as a sergeant in the U.S. Army. In 1968, after his time in the military, Stubb moved to Lubbock, Texas. That was the birthplace of his famous barbecue. 

With his welcoming smile and delicious brisket, Stubb fed the community in a rundown restaurant that only held about 75 people. Subb really started gaining attention with his "Blue Plate Specials." These attracted famous musicians like Joe Ely and Tom T. Hall. 

Stubb was able to move to Austin, Texas later, expanding his restaurant and eventually bottling his delicious sauce with support and encouragement from those around him; Joe and Sharon Ely opened their home for the bottling of the sauce. Word spread about Stubb's unique barbecue sauce and he was even invited to appear on the David Letterman Show. 

I love a good barbecue, any time of the day or year. Stubb's is a little tangy and a little sweet. All of you who don't like spicy, have no fear, Stubb's isn't spicy. I used the seasoning and the sauce on chicken.

I served this particular meal with mashed potatoes, but there are so many yummy options in the summer. I actually plan to use the burger recipe below for our family Memorial Day cookout. 

Here are some other recipes and tips straight from the makers of Stubb's BBQ:

DIY sauce recipes: Kick the ketchup habit with some fun, easy and tasty DIY burger sauces that you can make with some items you might already have on hand.
§  Mustard + Original BBQ Sauce: ¼ cup mustard to every 1 cup of BBQ
§  Bang Bang Sauce: Mix together 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 3/4 cup Stubb’s Original BBQ sauce, 1 heaping tablespoon of hot sauce and either a tablespoon of honey or some brown sugar depending on what I am cooking.
§  Spicy Mayo: ½ cup of mayonnaise and 3 tablespoons of Stubb’s Spicy BBQ sauce
§  Not Just Basic BBQ:
o    For a sweeter BBQ sauce – add 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 2 tablespoon honey to 1 cup of Original BBQ
o    To give your BBQ sauce a spicy kick – add habanero peppers to 1 cup of Original BBQ (add as many as you like depending on your level of spice)
Tips for Grilling your Meat:
·         Start with a clean grill so your burgers don’t stick and fall apart. My tip is to use an onion to clean your grill. Cut the onion in half, and while the grill is heating up, rub the onion across it. The juices from the onion clean the grill and get it ready for use. 
·         Make a thumbprint in the middle of the patty before putting it on the grill. This will help the patty come our nice and flat (not puffy in the middle) and the meat will be cooked evenly throughout.
·         Avoid burning or charring your meat by flipping it every couple of minutes. It’s a myth that you shouldn’t flip your meat! The hotter the grill, the more often you should turn it.

Full Recipes:
1.     Toasted Pecan Burger:
·         Ingredients
-       1 pound ground chuck
-       ¼ cup chopped red onion
-       ¼ cup chopped pecans, toasted
-       1 tablespoon finely chopped green bell pepper
-       3 tablespoons Stubb’s Original BBQ Sauce
-       2 tablespoons Stubb’s BBQ Spice Rub
-       Lettuce, mayonnaise, and toasted buns, for serving
·         Instructions:
-       Mix together the chuck, onion, pecans, bell pepper, Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q Sauce, and Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub. Shape into 3 large or 4 average-size patties. (The burgers may be mixed and shaped earlier in the day; refrigerate until ready to use.)
-       Prepare a grill for direct cooking. For a charcoal grill, when the coals are ashed over, rake or spread them out in the bottom of the grill so the food can cook directly over the coals. (For a gas grill, fire up the burners so the food can cook directly over the heat.)
-       Grill the burgers over direct medium heat, first on one side then on the other, 7 to 10 minutes, until they reach your desired degree of doneness. (Medium burgers register an internal temperature of 160°F.) Serve with lettuce, mayonnaise, and toasted buns.


2.     Stubb’s Fried Egg Burger with Spicy Mayo:
·         Ingredients
-       ½ cup mayonnaise
-       3 tablespoons Stubb’s Spicy BBQ Sauce
-       2 lbs. lean ground beef
-       1/3 cup Stubb’s Texas Steakhouse Marinade
-       2 tablespoons vegetable oil
-       6 eggs
-       6 hamburger buns
-       Tomato
-       Lettuce
-       Blue Cheese (optional)

·         Instructions:
-       In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and Stubb’s Spicy BBQ sauce. Set aside.
Using your hands, mix the ground beef and marinade. Divide meat into six patties.
-       Prepare the grill for direct cooking. Cook the burgers for 6-7 minutes on each side for medium doneness.
-       Heat a large non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Crack eggs into skillet and cook until the whites are set but the yolk is still runny, approximately 3 minutes. If you prefer your eggs over easy, flip and cook for an additional 15-20 seconds.
-       Assemble the burger in the following order: bottom bun, lettuce, tomato, cooked burger, blue cheese (optional), then egg. Spread the spicy mayonnaise on the top bun and place on top of the egg.

3.     Stubb’s Stuffed Burger:


·         Ingredients
-       2 lbs. ground beef
-       3/4 cup Stubb’s Original BBQ Sauce
-       2 tablespoons Stubb’s Beef Marinade
-       2 tablespoons Stubb’s BBQ Spice Rub
-       7 oz. can of nacho sliced jalapenos

-       3/4 cup shredded cheese

·         Instructions
-       In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, Beef Marinade, and Bar-B-Q Spice Rub together with your hands.
-       Use about 1/3 cup of meat and press it into a thin patty with your hands. Top the patty with one tablespoon sliced jalapenos and two tablespoons shredded cheese, leaving at least a ¼” rim around the edge. You can adjust toppings per your taste.
-       Press out another thin patty. Place the second patty on top of the first patty and use your fingers to seal the two patties together well. Repeat another five times to make a total of six burgers.
-       Grill burgers over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side, flipping once during cooking. Baste with Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q sauce during last 3 minutes of cooking.
-       Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings.

Want it? Buy it!

We tried the seasoning and the Sticky Sweet sauce. The Bar-B-Q rub sells for $3.29 for a 2 ounce jar at Meijer right now. The sauces come in 18 ounce or 24 ounce bottles. When you look at a product, there is a place to see where it is sold. For example, the Sticky Sweet BBQ can be found on Amazon, at Target, Meijer, HEB, and Jet. It is on sale at Meijer now for $2.99 for an 18 ounce bottle.

If those don't sound good to you, check out some of the other seasonings and sauces they sell. 








They also sell other sauces and marinades. Here are a few I thought sound delicious. 






These marinades and packets are made for chicken, pork, and beef. 


This already has my mouth watering!
