    Guys (and Gals),

    I am in charge of our christmas dinner this year and we are having ribs.  Since it is for Christmas I want to make a rub that is a Christmas themed rub and I have been thinking about using gingerbread in the rub.  I have a couple of question for you more experienced and good recipe developers.  Can/Should I just eleminate the sugar in my normal rub and replace it with dried gingerbread?  develop a whole new rub (need some help if that happens).  I am planning on making a cherry glaze to go on top of the ribs so that is going to play into the development process.

    Gingerbread has cinnamon, ginger and cloves in it, you should use those 3 ingredients in the rub, perhaps with some molasses powder if you can find it. Save the gingerbread for dessert.
  3. I added some cinnamon to a batch of Jeff's rib rub. I liked it, a lot.
