I used jeff's rub and I have a question. How much rub do you guys use? Per jeff's recipe the rub makes 2 cups and is good for 2 racks of ribs. How much would you use on a butt? I used just shy of two cups, doing what I thought was a thorough job of applying it. I could barely taste the rub when it was time to eat. not saying this was a bad thing as the main flavors were the meat and smoke, but I am kind of wondering the point of doing flavored rubs. I think next time I'll just use salt, pepper, onion, and garlic powder and see how it turns out.
Edit: Also, I threw a roll of sage breakfast sausage on with the butt for breakfast yesterday and that turned out great!
