  1. I pulled this off the FOOD NETWORK website...

    Mike Mill's magic rub...

    I increased the quanities, this bill of goods will make two, one quart containers, of rub.

    2 cup paprika
    1 cup kosher salt, finely ground (I used a mortar and pestel)
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup powdered mustard
    1 cup chili powder
    1 cup ground cumin
    1 cup granulated garlic
    ½ cup ground black pepper
    ½ cup cayenne pepper

    (Other sites list the dry mustard at the same ratio as the pepper, 1/2 cup in my case... I found this out after I made the rub)

    Meat Hunter,

    What do you mean by pre sweetened Kool-aid? Is that Kool-aid straight out of the pack or sugar added to it? Also what is 4 tsp of NOT?

    I really dont like a salty rub so for me personalyl Tony's is out... I had a great cajun rub that was perfect on EVERYTHING I ever tried it on but the guy that was making it kind of dropped off the face of the earth so I began searching for a new rub.. I love Big Ron's Hint of Houston good prices and shipping is included... Give him a shot.

    I use Jeff's rub 99% of the time sometimes I modify it a bit for a change of pace but usually use it just like the directions say. Ya'll that are buying rub and having it shipped really should try Jeff's recipe and make your own

    Personally I cant see paying for anyones rub. Ive had alot of fun this past year working on my own rubs, its what makes my bbq unique imho.

    Buy the spices, take notes, and come up with one to your tastes is my advise. [​IMG]

    I have only tried 3 rubs. I used one by Stubbs and a pork rub by McCormicks they were O.K. Then I found the http://www.smoking-meat.com website and bought Jeff's Rub. Jeff's work out so good that I'm scared to try anything else. I say try Jeff's out and if you are not satisfied he has a money back gurantee.

    I use Jeff's rub a lot. I found one that is really good. Dizzy Pig's Red Eye Express. I love this rub on Tri Tip.

    Anyone here ever tried any of Big-Ron's rub's? He posts on one of the other BBQ sites and seems to be a really good guy. Just curious if anyone had any experience. He offers sample specials from time to time and I thought I might check em out.
