    Well even the raw finished rub, (Jeff's Rib Rub Recipe), tastes different on it's own when using a sweeter, better quality paprika (Hungarian). I only would suggest that Jeff would make an addendum to his recipe and suggest the use of this specific paprika. My smoke is not over yet, but I know that this paprika will accent and not bitter-out this rub. We shall soon see!!

    Thin blue smoke.......I hear ya callin!!!!!!!!!!

    Its amazing how Paprika can be so different.
     
  3. I agree. The first time I made Jeff's rub, I made it per the recipe and I found the paprika was a little bitter. The second batch, I substituted Hungarian Paprika and used chipotle powder in place of the cayenne. I also added dry mustard powder. I found it was much better but it's just my opinion.

    Been there and done that. The only paprika I use in my rubs is either Hungarian or smoked Spanish. I quit using the red & white canned stuff several years ago, and I won't be going back.

    Order it from one of the many online places like spicebarn.
     
  8. I order my spices from http://www.myspicesage.com. I can't find chipotle powder or the hungarian paprika and this was the least expensive place I could find.

    The regualr paprika in the grocery stores are junk.
