  2. If you are looking for commercial rubs, check out Dizzy Pig.  I have read a lot of good things about them and just got some as a gift.

    Bass Pro has a mustard pork rub that they sell but i cannot remember the name. Its good.

    Also jeff's rub on this site is great
  4. Google Mike Mills Magic Rub Recipe. That's what I use. I changed it to use brown sugar and not regular sugar. Excellent rub
  5. I meant to type Magic Dust.
  6. Buy "Jeff's Naked Rub" Recipe".  Once you get the recipe you can make copies and give it to all of your friends.  I double the recipe and have plenty.  You will need to dry the brown sugar or the rub is lumpy.  I dry it by using a cookie sheet in the convection oven, about 175 degrees, for 20 minutes.  The sugar comes out all stuck together, so I take a rolling pin and break it up.  It then goes under the heat lamp for a couple of hours.  I then run it through the food processor.  You can then mix the rest of the ingredients.  It is a great recipe because it doesn't have as much salt as other rubs.
  7. I've heard of tatonka dust, I have read some good reviews about it. Hoping to try it soon.
  8. Here's the recipe for the rub I made today for the pork shoulder I'm gonna smoke in the morning. The rub had an awesome color and smell to it once I got it mixed up, and I think it's going to be awesome.

    This is the first time using this rub recipe, and the first time I'm smoking a pork shoulder, so wish me luck.

    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/8 cup paprika
    1 TB chili powder
    1 TB garlic powder
    1 TB onion powder
    1 TB salt
    1/2 TB pepper
    1/2 TB cocoa
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp cayenne powder
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1 tsp crushed rosemary
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 tsp ginger

  10. Might be a little late but this is what I use. Not to spicy and a little sweet. It's a pretty simple rub.
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup paprika
    2 tablespoons salt
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 tablespoons ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    Works out great with a sweet sauce.
