    I purchased Jeff's Naked Rib Rub Recipe and was just wondering if this rub will work well on a pork butt bout 8.5 pounds. Grocery store here in town selling them for .99 per pound hard to beat that price. Thinking bout smoking one this weekend. Thanks all.

    Works fine. Only beef <heh> I have is it's up there in sugar content. Might I suggest halving the sugar for the rub. Or if you really like the sweet base, use turbinado <raw> sugar, which has a higher char temp.

    Like Rich says, I use turbinado sugar and cut back on the amount. Other than that, it's good on pork, beef, chicken or whatever else. I even used it on a fatty!

    As above noted, I cut back on total amount and use half turbinato and half brown sugar.

    I like the sugar content. Also helps form the bark some too. [​IMG]

    Excellent suggestion, as usual.
