Well i would get salt(kosher and regular) and black pepper, onion powder, Garlic powder, some form of paprika (hot , sweet, smoked). I would also look at a few recipes you are going to use and see what you need on those lists. A lot of rubs use things like chilli powder, cumin, sugar (brown/white/turbindao), coriander, mustard.

 

If you don't have any recipes to start with and you want to start with something you can buy a couple recipe's off Jeff here on the Forums (proceeds help the forums) and modify till you get the rub you like to use.

 

Hope this helps,

Good advice by Phatback. I would add this. Buy FRESH spices especially if you are buying in bulk. You are not going to find fresh spices in your local supermarket most likely. If you have a spice store in your area go there. Don't buy more than you are going to use in a 60 day period. Spices don't stay fresh for very long and will lose their flavor. Store in glass containers in a cool dark place is recommended.

I don't have a spice store in my area so I purchase all mine online at the Spice Store.com,

Fresh spices make a significant difference in your rubs and the end result of your bbq.
