    Let me start off by saying that the baby backs that I did were the best I've ever done and my wife really like em'. I liked em' too I just wanted a little more tangyness to em' to compliment the other flavors. Here is the Rub that I used. I'm open to suggestions or completly different recipies. 

    1/2 c. paprika

    1/4 c. brown sugar




             chili powder



    I smoke them with Hickory and mopped on apple juice for an hour or so at the end.

    All in all I am pretty happy with the results but looking for a tweek.

    Thanks, Nate

    Now when you say tangyness I'm thinking that you want some heat. If that's right then I might use the paprika but maybe try some Hungarian paprika it's alittle bit spicier then normal paprika. You can even try some cayenne pepper too.

    Mop with a vinegar based sauce. Or find a tangy BBQ sauce that you like and try that.
