First UDS run

  1. Ok, first run with the new UDS was a success. Did 3 racks of baby backs and a bunch of chicken thighs. All was great except my rub(s). My family likes more of a sweet rub for the ribs. I never seem to get it right. All of the ones I have used, including the rub from yesterday all have too much pepper in them. Now I am a huge fan of pepper, but it was a bit too much for me as well. Does anyone care to share their sweeter rub? My chicken I brined for a couple of hours prior using and also using their suggested rub. Way too much salt. The chicken I but closer to the fire so I could keep the ribs at 225. The thighs came out juicy, just too salty. Help....

    Have you tried Jeff's rub?

    It's a good rub on it's own & can be easily adjusted to suit your taste.

    Also some of the proceeds go to keep this site running.

    Looking at the recipe for the brine and the rub there's nothing out of the ordinary in the amounts of salt used. I typically feel that if you are going to brine, then salt isn't needed in the rub.

    I don't brine very often and I keep the rub simple.
