    This is a rub I developed. Again, nothing special, but it's damn tasty. Might be a little sweet for Texas tastes, but I like experimenting.

    Basic BBQ Rub
    1/4 c kosher flake salt
    1/4 c packed dark brown sugar
    1/4 c smoked paprika
    3 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
    1 tbsp garlic powder (not garlic salt)
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp celery seed

    The celery seed here brings in some great flavors. Adjust cayenne to your desired spicy-ness level. ENJOY! :nana2:

    Looks like a Steve Raichlen recipe-

    Exactly... i just cut down on the cayenne cause it was a bit too spicy for me an not quite as sweet as I'd like. Got the start from one of his books.

  4. There are no original recipes - only variations of existing variations!  I will give this one a try, sounds like a good alternative.

    When going into the battle of the palate - better to be well equipped than only bringing 1 bullet!
