    This is my favorite pork / rib rub, This is what we probably use 95 percent of the time

    1 Cup brown sugar

    1/2 Cup paprika

    2 Tablespoons black pepper

    2 Tablespoons salt

    2 Tablespoons garlic powder

    2 Tablespoons onion powder 

    1 Teaspoon cayenne pepper

    2 Tablespoons chili powder 

    This will make you a fairly good size batch, it's pretty simple, and we store unused in a plastic container ..

    i use this on pork butts, ribs, chops, real good on loins ...  also  when i smoke venison ....

    I made this rub and used it on a couple racks of spares and it was as good as any commercial rub I've tried so far. IMHO, of course.

    Thanks matchew , it is simple and everyone probably has the ingredients in their cupboards already ... and you can just store it in a Tupperware bowl in the cupboard ....

    It will be pretty good ... Actually I am smoking a chuckie tomorrow and using this rub on it, except I am rubbing it down with honey mustard and then sprinkling it all over over and wrapping it in fridge overnight .....
  13. Sounds great Griz 400. Gonna have to try it.😋

    Same ingredients I use 👍 I don't measure mine though. I just shake it on out of the spice jars. Risky 😂

    I edited this recipe due to when I typed it in ... my wife caught this ... I had typed in 2 teaspoons  of cayenne pepper and was supposed to be just 1 ...if you like it hot,guess 2 would be ok .. sorry to whoever tried it and thought it was a little on the hot side ..whenever we BBQ anything, we always tend to season food for the average person, I like hot, wife doesn't ,I like rare, wife likes it well done .. go figure .. so, now it right,

    Gonna have to try your rub there Griz.

    Yours is milder than what I use for my pork.
    I go a good bit heavier on the spices.

    1C Brown Sugar
    1/2C Lawry's Seasoned Salt
    1/3C each Paprika, Garlic and Onion powders
    And if I want to kick the heat up I add
    1/8C each of Cayenne and Black peppers
