Hello all,
Thought I would share an idea my wife had. She suggested this year to make up some of my BBQ Rub for co-workers, friends, and family and give as gifts.
So here we go!

Haha.. Good idea..
Nice of you to do that for people. Now they don't have to worry about making some rub. You already got it covered for them.

Both look great, but to me the Chili Lime looks a slightly bit better. Great job!!

I'm going to do the same thing along with some homemade hots, sausages, ham, etc. Jars are supposed to be delivered today. Everyone looks forward to Christmas food gifts.

Gary,
Well, it dawned on me after reading your comment that one of my co-workers is a vegetarian... So she may not appreciate it. Maybe my rub is good on Tofu???? LOL!

Smoke ON!

Looks Great, Mr. Miller!

I make my own rub, too.
I just shake in this, and I shake in that, taste. Shake in some of that, and a bit of that over there, and taste.
Then I put it in an old spice shaker jar, and I shake the hell out of it.
It has an Oniony, garlicy, peppery, spicey, goodness with a little afterburn of cyan and smoked paprika.
But basically, done to taste and eyeball.

But it looks like this before shaking:

Sure, I'd like to know as well.
Since this forum is about sharing, Here is my rub recipe I used for the gifts.

Millertime Rub #7 (Pork / Chicken Rub)
2 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Paprika (Not Smoked)
5 1/2 TBS Ground Black Pepper (Course)
5 TBS Granulated Garlic
4 TBS Onion Powder
3 TBS Cumin
3 Tsp Chili Powder
2 TBS Kosher Salt
2 TBS Celery Salt
2 TBS Honey Powder
2 Tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper (you can increase for more heat)

Since I have a 6 Year old and a wife that do not like their food super spicy, I don't have a lot of heat. You can increase the Cayenne Pepper and I have also added ground Chipotle Pepper as well.

Enjoy,

Smoke ON!

That Honey Powder sounds like it could work good for my dehydrated apples and bananas, too.
Seems to be kind of common on the web. But I never heard of it before either.
I think I'll get some.

Sam's Club sez it has a 30 year life span.
