    Does anybody have any thoughts on a good rub?

    I will be the first of MANY who will suggest buy Jeff's rub recipe along w/ he sauce recipe. They are great together and seperate.

    I'll second that......you can't go wrong with Jeff's rub or sauce!! However, if your just looking for rub recipes I've collected about 100 pages of rubs, sauces and directions.

    Honestly, John, if you have no idea where to start, Jeff's is an excellent recipe. I don't use it often verbatim- my rubs tend to be alot less sweet and have some other spices. Here's a list of the typical rub I make- quantities vary. I suggest you start with perhaps a quarter cup of paprika and go from there.
    Dry mustard
    Kosher salt
    Celery salt

    Sometimes I'll add Old Bay, some folks like cinnimon and/or nutmeg.

    But if I were inexperienced in rubs/sauces, I'd buy Jeffs. Heck I DID buy Jeff's.

    I agree with all the above.

    Can't go wrong with Jeff's recipes. You can tweak 'em if you want, but I'd be willing to bet you'll find they won't need much! Well worth the few bucks to try...

    I like Jeffs rub and like Rich I changed it to my taste.
    I also LOVE Durkees Chicken and Rib rub..

    I cant speak of Jeff's rub, because I've never tried it. If you're looking for something out of a bottle, I have been very happy with Bone Sucking Rub. It's really good stuff.

    Not to be the odd man out here, but I've used Emerils whiz bang, with some brown sugar added, and been very pleased with it. It contains pretty much the same seasonings as most rub recipes. Will be getting Jeffs recipe though. I've gained too much respect for everyones opinions here to not follow up on them.[​IMG]

    I use Emeril's rib rub also. The only place I've found the rib rub is at Krogers , or the food network store. It has never let me down. Emeril also has a good brisket rub recipie you can find on the food network. I tried it for new years. It was great.
