  1. I have been working on this recipe for about a year, I think i nailed it about a month ago.

    All ingredients are by volume. I use a Tablespoon, but a shovel would work too. This is the recipe for meat thoroughly soaked in brine hence no salt.

    1 Allspice

    1 Sage

    2 Fennel Seed (ground)

    2 Crushed Red Pepper (ground)

    3 Star Anise (ground)

    3 Onion Powder

    3 Garlic Powder

    3 Old Bay

    3 Black Pepper (ground)

    5 Paprika

    5 Cumin (my favorite spice of all time)

    7 Dark Red Chili Powder

    I try to grind my own spices as much as possible. This recipe will make the bark on a Pork shoulder taste like smokey hot Italian sausage, but when it is pulled and all mixed together will just give the meat a subtle spiciness that will have everyone coming back for more.

    I have used the same spice mix with an addition of

    5 Salt (kosher)

    20 Brown Sugar

    for meat that wasn't brine soaked with good results as well.

    I would love some feedback.

    Thank you.
