OK really scared of my mother in law's chilli and BBQ for Xmas Eve dinner so I volunteered to make some pulled pork. I need a kick a$$ rub to impress the family - something other than SPOG OR Jeff's.
I use a variation of the Mephis dust. I add chipotle chili powder until it is spicy enough for me.
One of my favorite pork rubs is a commercial rub...Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple Rub. But if it's gotta be a homemade recipe and you don't want to use Jeff's, here's one I've used in the past for pork that got lots of compliments:
Memphis Magic Dust Rub Recipe
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup Morton's kosher salt
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons rosemary powder
Yield, makes about 3 cups.
Good luck with the MIL's Christmas Eve Cook Off!
