I'm going to Houston, Tulsa and Ft Smith this week...

Any suggestions on where to pick up some regional rubs??

How about BBQ joints?
You need to go To Rudy's (Rudy's Country Store and BBQ) in Houston for good Q and good rub/sauce. Go for the spicy rub and sauce! Or if you want to drive a little bit extra, go to Elgin and get some Elgin Hot Guts from Southside Market. An hour, or an hour and a half drive in Texas is nothing!
Oklahoma Joe` s very near Tulsa I have not been there yet, but everyone that I have talked to has had a great meal.

I went to Oklahoma joes Saturday and I had no complaints about the BBQ . there are many others also such as Knotty Pine , many Rib Cribl locations .
This may be a bit late (and I wish I had seen this in January when it posted!), but I'll add a nod to Beaver's in Houston as a pretty decent place to get BBQ. Good variety on the menu and it's definitely not on the tourist route. Maybe this will help someone else out who is heading to Houston. Near downtown, nowhere near the Galleria area.

On another note, why isn't there a top level forum for BBQ eateries? Or is there and I didn't see it...? I searched on "joint" to find this thread.

A little late, but thanks for the reply...

Next time in Houston, I'll check it out! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
