    Josh,click the search tab and type it in,you should find something.

  3. ok im going to go out on a limb here and try some applesauce and some just random spices from the cabnit my brisket and ribs are in the refrig atm figured i would let the rubs work there magic over night and throw them on around 0800-0900 in the morning my brisket is a flat cut the pork spare ribs are both 2.40lbs so the skoming time should be real close to the same time right?[​IMG]

    2 T granulated onion
    2 T paprika
    1 T chili powder
    2 T black pepper
    1T ground thyme
    1 T ground cumin
    1t ground nutmeg
    2t cayenne pepper

    I know folks have had wonderful success with nothing more than simple kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper, maybe a touch of garlic thrown in.
    That's about as basic as you can get.

    I like the salt and pepper thing on some stuff but not ribs they just cry out for a good rub. I have used butt rub alot and here latey I have been using a new one Old Bay has a rub that works really well with ribs. It's not the same old bay for seafood it's good with alittle spicey.

    Once you find a good rub recipe you should just make a big batch of it to have on hand.
    Whenever I do my chipotle rub I make quite a bit, give some to my brother-in-law, fill up my own shaker and have some in the pantry whenever I run low in the shaker.
    Then you always have something on hand to use when needed.
