High competent cells for transformation

Does anyone have a good protocol for making highly competent cells for
transformation.  I'm trying the Hanahan method on a particular strain that
can replicate plasmids with repeats.  However, the FSB buffer doesn't seem
to work for this strain but does a good job with DH5 alpha cells.  I'm
wondering if anyone has used RbCl on other strains besides DH derivatives
and has found success with it.
