Has anybody tried the Simply Marvilous Cherry Rub? Or can recommend a good commercial brand.

I haven't tried it but when I smoke my ribs I add Cherry Jello powder to my rub. Just add a little at a time until you get the taste that you like.

I like that idea. Not only would it give the cherry flavor, but it would enhance the mahogany color and maybe give a little bit of a "smoke ring" too. Great for watt burners. I'd guess the gelatin in the jello would also add to the lip smackin' goodness.

ive tried it didn't like it (I always make my own though) one thing I remember about that rub is that it seemed easy to overdo. Since pork is typically bland I like to use more rub than usual as compared to beef or lamb. So I always tend to stay away from commercial rubs.

I like sweetness on pork.

It is easy to over do. That's why I add a little at a time until I get the taste I am looking for. It's all personal preference. Or if I have time and not feeling too lazy I make my own:

 

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/8 cup kosher salt

1/4 cup paprika

1/4 cup chili powder

1/8 up mustard powder

1/8 cup granulated garlic

1/8 cup cherry Jello powder

1 tbs cayenne pepper

2 tbs coarse black pepper
