has anyone been on amazingribs,com and used meatheads memphis dust rub? just wondering if it is good,
I've used it on ribs, its good but I wouldn't call it great. I like heat so I added a little more cayenne, haven't used a lot of different rubs to compare it to. My go to is good old salt and pepper, with garlic powder sometimes. Don't know if this helps but BTW that's a great avatar you've got yourself there, keep on smokin.
I've tried it. It's pretty good. For many years I'd been on the search for the perfect rub.
Honestly I've got a pantry full of bags of dust that I bought on line or from a BBQ joint that I liked. Some are recipes that I found, made and then vac sealed LOL Crazy obsession.
But you know, lately I've just been using simple stuff . 2/3 cup course black pepper, 1/3 cup kosher salt and maybe a tablespoon or 2 of paprika. Easy stuff. simple flavors that won't overload the meats.
I still get choosy about the wood depending on the meat I am smoking. But just using a simple rub has been awesome lately.
Let us know how you like the Memphis rub.
i used sugary rubs salty rubs, peppery rubs and just never found the perfect rub for me too, i, too, like yourself i have a ton of different spices to make my own,thousands of different recipes for rubs. maybe one day i will find it,

1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup turbinado (raw) sugar
1/2 cup paprika (I use a smoked and a Hungarian)
1/2 to 1 cup kosher salt (to your taste) - I use a mixture of kosher salt and seasoned salt
1/4 cup granulated garlic
2 T ground black pepper
2 T ground ginger
2 T onion powder
2 T dry mustard
2 t rosemary powder
Cayenne to taste
