    So I am preparing to smoke my first ribs tomorrow...figured I'd try to make a rub.

    I used one and a half cups of white sugar...although the popular vote seems brown?

    2 Tsp Garlic Powder

    2 Tsp of Regular Salt

    2 Tsp of Paprika

    2 Tsp of Chili Powder

    1 Tsp of Cinnamon

    1/2 Tsp of Cumin

    1/2 Tsp of Curry Powder

    1/2 Tsp of Oregano

    1/2 Tsp of Cayenne

    Got most of the ingredient ideas from a pervious post on here...hope it turns out!

    Scratch that! I ended up abandoing the rub...

    If I'm going to smoke for 6 had better be right.

    I ended up searching for a Kansas City Rub and Sauce recipe...


    One-quarter cup brown sugar
    One-quarter cup sweet paprika
    Two teaspoons ground black pepper
    Two teaspoons chili powder
    Two teaspoons onion powder
    One teaspoon garlic powder
    One teaspoon mustard powder
    One-half teaspoon powdered cayenne


    1-1/2 cups of water 

    1/2 cup of your favorite ketchup

    1/3 cup white vinegar

    1/4 cup tomato paste

    1/4 cup molasses

    2 tablespoons of white sugar

    1 teaspoon of Liquid Smoke flavoring

    1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
