Oakridge BBQ Competition Rubs
Are the best barbecue rubs money can buy. We control every aspect of their production in-house; from recipe development to sourcing the freshest, highest-potency spices available directly from the farmers who grow them all across the globe. Oakridge BBQ rubs are then hand-blended, batch aged, and packaged by hand in our own production facility to ensure unsurpassed quality, flavor and freshness. Our competitors use standard commodity grade spices and high percentages of salt, fillers or artificial ingredients in their formulations, often tending to be nothing more than just cheaply flavored salt. In stark contrast, all Oakridge BBQ rubs feature ultra-high quality herbs and spices, raw unrefined cane sugar, and just the right amount of natural sea salt to perfectly balance each rub’s flavor profile. Additionally, Oakridge BBQ rubs are completely gluten free and contain absolutely NO MSG, artificial ingredients, preservatives, fillers or anti-caking agents. Our unique, quality-centered approach creates truly artisanal products with bold flavors and perfectly balanced sweet-hot, salty-savory profiles far surpassing any other barbecue rubs or seasoning blends on the market.
This is the real-deal folks; This is Serious Barbecue rub.
This rub does it all – fish, seafood, vegetables, beef, pork, chicken, lamb, everything. Use it as a base rub, an accent rub, a finishing dust, or a fry seasoning. Grilled fruit anyone? Just use your imagination and this rub will impress. Perfectly salty and savory with rich smoky undertones, mild sweetness, warm background heat and a bright citrus pop from the crystallized lime juice. Finely ground so the flavor stays put and incorporates quickly. So good, it will become your favorite go-to seasoning for just about everything.
Top competition and home cooks alike are constantly searching for an edge; something special to make their food stand out. Dominator Sweet Rib Rub delivers that edge. The sweetness developed by this rub from the blend of raw cane sugar, honey, Vietnamese cinnamon & select exotic spices is intoxicating, and balanced perfectly by deep savory and subtly spicy notes. Excels on pork ribs, or any other cut of pork or chicken. Don’t just cook your food, Dominate it!
Oakridge BBQ Competition Beef & Pork Rub – Bold and flavorful are the hallmarks of this All Natural signature rub. Big flavors that marry perfectly with big, bold cuts of meat like ribeyes, porterhouses, strip loins, beef brisket, burgers, chops, duck, pulled pork and pork spareribs. Perfectly balanced sweet/heat/savory/salty flavor profile with the bold aromas of chilies, cumin and celery in the front with the smoky sultry heat of chipotle peppers in the finish.

Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria Steak Seasoning – Our new Santa Maria Steak Seasoning is our riff on a California classic.

Oakridge BBQ Game Changer® All Purpose Brine – Tired of dry, flavorless chicken? Would you like your pork chops to be bursting with flavor and moisture from the inside out? Wild game just too “gamey” for you? Or, are you like many who just can’t seem to break into the top ten each weekend with your contest chicken?
The Game Changer® is your answer.
We’ve taken our contest-proven top secret brine recipe and re-formulated it into an easy to dissolve powder. Just mix with water or any non-acidic liquid. Specifically designed to enhance a wide array of meats from chicken & turkey to pork, wild game and even fish, adding a high degree of moisture and flavor INTO the meat, naturally. We use only the highest grade 100% ALL NATURAL ingredients. Absolutely ZERO phosphates, nitrates, nitrites, fillers, anti-caking agents, artificial flavors or colors. Gluten and allergen free.
In our product testing phase earlier this year, we secretly gave this new brine to our team of professional barbecue cooks and let them try it out on the contest circuit. Not only did they love it, in this short time, this new brine has already accounted for over a half-dozen Top Three chicken calls and three Grand Championships!

Caribbean Jerk is a long-held staple in Island cuisine. The unique flavor profile instantly conveys tropical scenes and a laid-back lifestyle.

Carne Crosta, loosely translated as “Beef Crust” in Portuguese, is exactly what this rub will produce. It excels when cooked over high direct heat, especially on well-marbled cuts of beef. The high cooking temperatures are necessary to release oils in the rich Brazilian coffee, which intertwine with the spices and rendered fat, creating the most sumptuously-crusted steak you’ve ever experienced.

Black OPS Brisket Rub marks the second entry in our Signature Edition series rubs. Black OPS excels on all cuts of beef, but brisket is its sweet-spot.

Oakridge BBQ Limited Edition Crucible Ghost Chile Rub – Only 800 units will be available world-wide this year. Ghost Chile, also known by the name Bhut Jolokia, is one of the hottest chiles known to man. It has a citrus-like, grapefruit flavor and an intense, searing heat that comes on slow and builds like a runaway freight train. We have harnessed this beast of a chile and built a rub like none other. While not diminishing the chile’s notorious heat, we’ve carefully blended this rub to also showcase its wonderful citrus notes in ways never experienced before, developing a full long-lasting flavor that can walk lock-step with the serious heat of this chile. For the heat-seekers among us, this rub is without peer.
Our Experimental Edition range embodies the highest degree of our Master Blender’s art; a “no-holds-barred” approach to precise flavor development, and experimentation with extremely rare and unique ingredients. Finessing the interplay of all SIX components of taste; sweet, sour, salty, bitter, umami and heat, into a truly one of a kind flavor experience. Our proprietary Extended Batch Aging process allows all the natural oils and fatty acids contained in the spices to fully marry together and mature into a single symphony of flavors. By design, due to the rarity of key ingredients, each expression of our Experimental Edition range will always be extremely limited in number and will only be produced once.
