Hello Josh, and welcome to the SMF. I see that eman has given you a good rub recipe.It's all good my friend.

Since you're new to this game, you might want to think about it before you use Eman's rub recipe.

It could cause a very serious addiction!


You have been warned!

I see you got a couple of good ones already. Take those and make them your own - be careful with taking advice from Bear, he has a serious addiction

Here are a few I tried when I first started and changed to my own personal preference


Carolina Rub:

•2 tablespoons salt
•2 tablespoons sugar
•2 tablespoons brown sugar
•2 tablespoons ground cumin
•2 tablespoons chili powder
•2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
•1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
•1/4 cup paprika

Memphis style rub:

4 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoons cayenne

Basic Pork Rub:

•1/3 cup paprika
•1/4 cup sugar
•3 tablespoons black pepper
•2 tablespoons salt
•2 teaspoons dry mustard
•2 teaspoons cayenne
•1 teaspoon white pepper

Best Odds Rib Rub:

1/3 cup paprika
3 tablespoons dry mustard
3 tablespoons onion powder
3 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground basil
1 tablespoon red pepper
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
Add 1 tablespoon brown sugar to sweeten

If this is your first loin, I have a suggestion. Try smoking it with no rub, just wrap it in bacon to keep it moist & see what it tastes like. Then you have a baseline flavor you can expand on.

Good luck with the Loin the help you have already got sounds like some great stuff.

This is a good rub that I have used and found works really well with pork loin:



Book: Haskett Family Favorites Cookbook
Chapter: Brines, Rubs & Sauces

1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 lemon zested


Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Rub on meat. Wrap meat in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.


Yield: about 3/4 cup
