2017 Rubs of Honor results

The annual Rubs of Honor contest is an event that is run by the National Barbecue News and is the only rub contest in the country that anyone can enter.

The purpose for the annual Rubs of Honor event is very simple: find the best seasoning for chicken, pork and beef. Each of the top 10 finishers in each category is presented with a certificate and the winner in each category is presented with a national championship award that uses their actual entry as part of the award. Each winner also receives a $750 prepaid advertising contract with the National Barbecue News for the purpose of promoting their product to the barbecue world. This event always takes place in the fall of the year and the Sauces of Honors event happens each spring. The Rubs and Sauces of Honor events are perfect ways to test new products that you may want to market. You can find more info on these events at www.BarbecueNews.com /nbn-saucesrubs-honor
