    I'm really big into raiding my spice cabinet and throwing a rub together. What I haven't been big on is writing the recipe down so I can make it agiain/modify it. Now, for the first time, I finally wrote one down and it was pretty darned great! So far, I've used it on a fatty (see my fatty wellington post) and a brisket (see brisket & abt's). Give it a try, tell me how I can make it better or if it's just amazing as is. It's a pretty basic rub, but, then again, I'm a beginner at devloping recipes.

    You might try adding an equal amount of fresh ground corriander seeds to compliment the cumin. Alos try testing/tasting using Ancho chile powder or Ground Chipotle chile powder, and there again there are the Chimayo mild/hot chile powders. I have a lot of compliments using sweet smoked Spanish paprika. Nuff said!

    I'll have to give that a try. Not sure where I'll find all that stuff...Maybe a Vons around here may have it...It's not like I have a narrow selection of local grocers.

    Sounds good. Rubs are great to play with. I like to just spinkle sometimes myself but I line up the stuff just in case it's a real winner!

    Did the ability to remember you rub or think to write it down have anything to do with sobriety, i useally come up with my best rubs and sauce when i'm 3/4 chithammerd, my neibghor guy trys to slow me down enough to write down what i'm doing so we can duplicate/alter for the next cook.
