You could try this rub, but cut the chili powder, cayenne, black pepper and paprika in half.

Pork BBQ Rub Plus


2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
ΒΌ cup paprika

Hope this helps!

Take care, have fun, and do good!

I just used John Henry's Pecan rub on my pork butt. It has a nice sweet smokey flavor.
It can be found at Barbecues Galore, or any specialty bbq store.

You can also experiment with making one of your own. Just smoke a little meat with an experiment. You don't want eight slabs of ribs or turkey to not come out right.

Here are a couple I tweeked. These recipes I found on the web, but made some changes.

I like Porker's Rib Rub

This is the rub I use for Brisket and sometimes for pork. It's according to which cut of pork.

I usually tweek it a bit, and cut back on the salt.

absolutely - i think it's got "st. louis style" or similar wording on the label, which is black.

the only drawback is that it has just a hint of smoke flavoring. if i could duplicate this rub WITHOUT that, and instead rely soley on natural smoke flavoring, i would be as happy as a puppy with two peters.

Jeff's rub is amazing. I used it on Pork chops last night and threw 'em on the grill. They came out with the best flavor... I think I cut the cayenne pepper down in mine a little.

My fiance couldn't stand the spicyness in ANY of the rubs I tried before Jeff's. Trust me, buy the recipe it's worth every penny and it'll eventually save you money. You won't buy anymore store bought rubs.

Stubbs Rub is great and not spicy at all. It is my wifes favorite rub for ribs.
Most grocery stores carry it or you can order it from the website.

The last 6 or so butts I've done, I skinnied my rub down to just brown sugar, salt and black pepper 24 hours before. Over the years I've done just about every rub out there and then some and I can't say that they have tasted any better than what I've been doing lately.
