    As promised, here is the rub. I get my spices from a Penzey's Spices. They are fresher and stronger, and you can't beat their chili selection.

    enough free advertisement.

    This recipe makes about 4 cups of rub mix. You may want to adjust the salt down, I like a cure like taste and texture to my bbq.

    1 C. Kosher Salt (Morton's)
    2 C. Dark Brown Sugar
    2 T. Black Pepper (Tellicherri)
    2 T. Balinese Long Pepper
    2 T. New Mexico Hot Chil Powder
    4 T. Hungarian half sharp paprika
    3 T. onion powder
    1 t. powdered lemon peel
    1 T. garlic powder
    1 t. rubbed sage
    1 t. thyme

    Mix Well and store air tight.
    you can keep a piece of bread in it if it gets hard.

    It is so good you don't need sauce!

    Sounds like a good rub to try. I might cut back on the salt for myself though.

    I have used Penzy's Spices and cannot be happier. Generally in every order I get a sample of something. Apply on line and get a catalog. They will have new recipes in every catalog they send you. My first order with them was just under $150. could have spent more but the wife says I cannot possibly use that much. lol
