Pork Butt Rubs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
You know, I told myself, I'll keep smokin' when school starts (I'm a teacher) and I'll do it every weekend, and I'll be on the board every week....and I was wrong. I log back in and it's been TWO MONTHS since I've been here. Yikes.

So, uh, Happy Holidays, including Halloween, Turkey Day and Christmas.

I'm going to do a butt in the next couple of days (father in law got me a gift certificate to the local butchers) and I wanted to do a homeade rub, usually I've been going with store-bought. Suggestions? As in....leave your recipes here? :)

Re: Pork Butt Rubs?

Got a cure for that two moth lapse... make www.smokingmeatforums.com your home page. Then you don't have a reason for not checking in.

Barbecue Rub

2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons ground cumin
2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons black pepper -- freshly cracked or coarse ground
1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
4 Tablespoons paprika
All you do is throw them together and mix them well. Cover meat on all sides. Adjust sugars or peppers to taste.

Keep Smokin

Re: Pork Butt Rubs?

Heh. If I did, my wife would say "What is this?" and "Where is the regular homepage?" and "Why did you change it?" and then I would have to change it. :)

I do love my wife.

Really, I do.

I understand. If you're running IE7 then add a second homepage on the next line, which will open two tabs with two different homepages. Otherwise, it's all up to you. Hurry back we miss ya when you aren't here. :)

Keep Smokin

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder

Hope this helps.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Here's a basic rub that I've used and liked:

1/2 cup brown sugar packed and dried
1 tablespoon each of:
Salt, Pepper, Onion Power, Garlic Power, Chili Powder
1 teaspoon cayenne for a little heat

Add paprika until you get your desired color. Too much paprika makes the bark gritty, so don't use more than you have to.

I like this recipe because its easy to remember.

Don't be afraid to taste your rub and adjust anything as you see fit.
