How Much Rub

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am getting ready to smoke six 8-9 lb butts. How many cups of rub to I need to make up to adequately cover them?

It would all depend on how much you like. When I rub my butts, I cover them with just enough rub, so you can't see the meat any longer then I throw just a bit more. I keep my rub in a sealed baggie,so hard to guess at # of cups.

I would say I use about a cup or a little more on a butt. But, I try to stick as much as that thing will hold and shove it in as many cracks as I can. So maybe a cup and a half per butt?

To me, it depends on what type of rub you are using.
If it's mostly sugar, then I would pile it on, becasue most of it will melt and run off.
If it's a more savory rub...mostly paprika, then I would tend to use less because it stays around better.

A cup should do it if it's a paprika rub. Maybe 1 1/2 - 2 cups if it's more sugary..

..just me..
