A few weeks ago the kind people at Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q asked if I would like to make another post like the last one I wrote here. I was thrilled they asked me because our family goes through the rubs and sauces faster than you can imagine! They sent me a box full of the lovely items you see in the photo. I promised to make one of their recipes and post about by the end of August. I planned for a mid-week post – and then…….
It all started last Saturday morning when Mr. Picky Eater and I went out on our usual Saturday morning errands and yard sales. It was drizzling. Stepping out of the car I slipped on the rain, mud, and oil on the street – falling flat. Of course the hubs was long gone and didn’t even notice I wasn’t with him until he got to the door of the store. He arrived just in time to laugh at my mud covered shoes and legs then grow a bit concerned about the big bloody skinned knee. I was so sore Sunday morning I could hardly move!
Monday the fridge busted – then we decided it had been the victim of little hands turning knobs on Tuesday but by Wednesday we knew a replacement was needed.
Wednesday mother fell very ill. We took her to the ER where she was admitted and will remain till Tuesday at the very least. Top Girl is packing for a 4 day conference in Philadelphia starting with a flight leaving Oklahoma City at 6AM in the morning. She won’t be sleeping much tonight.
Every time I had a few hours to grill the great steaks I had marinated with Stubb’s beef marinade, it rained! So then I tried some great pork chop kebobs using pork rub and marinade – and it rained again! Tonight, when I got home I was exhausted and trying to find another recipe to make – when I came upon this Stubbelada. This is their very own recipe and nothing I made up. It looked delicious and just what I wanted after such a week as mine. It’s very easy to make and luckily for me it’s not sweet and fruity – it’s hearty and goes well paired with the celery and carrots with Ranch Dip that we had. It tastes wonderful!
I’ve never posted a beverage that a child could not drink on the blog – but this is an exception. You know the great thing about Stubb’s marinades and rubs? They are Certified Gluten Free if you are on a special diet. My very favorite Stubb’s are the Anytime Sauces – They have a green chile and a Texas Sriracha that are to die for! You’ve got to give ‘em a try!
Stubb’s Pork Rub for rimming the glasses
1.5 Oz. of Stubb’s Beef Marinade
1.5 Oz. Tomato Juice (I used V8)
12 Oz. Lager Beer put in the freezer for about 15 minutes
Lightly rim the glasses with Stubb’s Pork Rub
In a small pitcher mix the Stubb’s Beef Marinade and tomato juice
Pour in beer and mix gently, pour into rimmed glasses and add a lime wedge
Serve with celery and carrots with Ranch Dip or any other appetizer you choose!
Truly, this is a nice relaxing drink that won’t bowl you over with sweetness which is what I like!
This sounds so good!!! What a great idea and nice and easy!
Thank you Tana! It was good – and if you like beer you will like it a lot!
I’m so sorry t hear that your mother is in the hospital. I hope she’s doing better by now.
The drink sounds interesting to me, although I don’t care for beer. In this case, it sounds like something I’d like. I’ve never seen this brand of rubs/sauces in southwestern Ohio.
Hi Lillian – The locator says it is sold in Ohio at Walmarts, Targets, Supervalu,Mejir, Marsh, Marc’s, Kroger, Giant Eagle, Buehler’s food market, AWG, and ACME Fresh Market – if you have any of those stores, you can check there – it’s honestly worth it – they are very tasty items! 🙂
Kelli—sending good thoughts your way. Hang in there. Your creativity is still intact b/c these drinks are Stubb-pendous!
Thank you so much!

Kelli – I’ve seen your updates about Mom and you (and she) are in my thoughts and prayers. ~ I think you know that Stubb’s is one of the very few brands of sauces/spices that I’ll keep in my kitchen and … damn! Why haven’t I seen this recipe before?!? Good stuff! (Made from very good stuff!)
Thank you Adam! We drank those two drinks and made two more! Very refreshing! Also, we really appreciate your thoughts and prayers – I was pretty scared last night but today she is so much better. Looks like the particular antibiotics she got are working.

Wow! Who knew? Rim a glass with rub, and add a marinade to a beverage? Thanks!
You are welcome – we have had it once more since and enjoyed it again very much!!
