    I purchased Jeff's rub and sauce last weekend. I received the email from him today for Pecan Smoked Chicken Wings. They looked so good and I want to try the recipe. Should the rub have a red tint once it is mixed? The pics he posted with the rub on the chicken in the email looked to have a red tint. I am asking because I mixed my ingredients and it looks more like the ground pepper than anything.

    When I mix up Jeff's rub it always has a reddish color to it.. I won't give out the ingredients but if you did it right you won't see
    Much black pepper

    It also depends upon the color, freshness and quality of the ingredients. That red ingredient can vary in color a lot.

    Are we talking original or Texas style?
    Texas will look more peppery

    Texas style is what I was making. The recipe I bought came with 2 rubs (Texas and naked rib rub) and the BBQ sauce. The recipe for the Pecan Smoked Chicken Wings calls for Jeff's rub. Should I assume that it was referring to the Naked Rib Rub? I compared both recipes and believe that he is probably referring to the naked rib rub recipe based on the amounts of the ingredients in that recipe.
