 I use this for all, Pork Ribs, Brisket and Chicken ..I am not a big fan of beef ribs

My dry rub - 1/2 cup paprika, 1/2 cup   garlic powder, 1 Tbspn cumin, 1 Tblspn Salt, 1 Tblspn pepper, 1 Tbspn ground mustard, 3 teaspn cheyene pepper, 1 Tblspn ground ginger, 1 Cup white sugar, 2 Cup brown sugar. This dry rub will last you for a few BBQ's. I buy large plastic screw on lid containers on ebay to store the dry rub. I have been doing this for several years and experimented alot.

Looks good. I like that the salt content is fairly low so you can adjust to your own taste. I also like the ginger. By the way, isn't 3 teaspoons equal to one tablespoon? :)
Looks great I will have to try it for sure!  Thanks for sharing!! 
Sounds great!  I will try it tomorrow on 2 racks of ribs.  I was thinking of trying one rack of beef and one rack of Baby backs at the same time.  Does anyone think this is a bad idea?  I am a complete newbie, so please don't worry about offending me by pointing out my ignorance...

Also, the only paprika I have is "smoked" paprika.  It is from an herbal outlet, so it is natural, not fake smoke, but I wonder if this would be contraindicated, or just plain stupid.

Thanks pros! 
Looks like a good rub to try out

I like to substitute "Allspice" for Cinnamon or Ginger
