Stubb’s Favorite Grub

Stubb tending to his famous ribs.

My granddad loved cooking barbecue and seeing people happy. He loved being at the pit, smoking briskets, ribs, chicken etc… He also loved being at the stove over a pot mixing up his sauce. One thing that we never really mention is that he also loved to eat barbecue.

When I say eat, I am not just talking about his own food. My granddad enjoyed eating other people’s food. Wiley’s BBQ was one of his favorite places to go get barbecue. A small restaurant on east 4th street in Lubbock, Texas, it’s just a drive thru, but he enjoyed their brisket and ribs. Once he moved to Austin, he would frequent Bill Miller’s. Sam’s was another place he would go to quiet often. I remember driving him over there almost every time I came to visit.

Awhile back a friend of mine shared a short Stubb story with me. While displaying a few Stubb’s products at a BBQ competition, a restaurant owner came up to him. He noticed all of the product and told my friend how he met my granddad. He said years ago Mr. Stubbs came to his restaurant to eat. The place hadn’t been open long. Stubb ordered his food and didn’t talk much while he ate. Once he was done, he paid and was headed out the door. Before he could get out the door the guy stopped him and asked, “How was it?” He said my granddad looked at him, smiled and said, “You’re going to make it!”

    Dear sir,i grew up on open pit bbq sauce,i later started to add things to this sauce….i never got it tasting to what i thought was perfect!came close but still no success!I moved to alabama 15 yrs ago and started really seeing and tasting good barbeque,but still no success on how i liked a sauce…to much vinegar here,to much tomato here or to much of what i still didnt want.One day i was in giant johnsons food store and stubbs was on the shelf.It was a little expensive,but i asked everyone if they ever tasted stubbs?they said never heard of it,but it had the color i was lookin for.Any body who knows anything bout sauce you can see a sauce and just tell if it will taste good!My ribs take all day to make,ok!so i bought stubbs,used it and when i tasted stubbs i did not have to add nothing to it to meet my flavor profile sir.So i put it on the ribs and so on.When i served the ribs it was all over demolished!Mr stubb,i believe you have created the perfect barbeque sauce ever!folks it took me 20 years to find it,but this sauce is awesome,awesome,awesome,thank you sir for making it,sincerely jeff willey…..

    My daddy only cried two times in his life. One was when your grand daddy left Lubbock, the other was when he passed away.
