    I've been playing around with this new rub and can't seem to find any meats that it isn't great with. I did pork spares last days off and we loved 'em! Smoked up 4lbs of Tilapia with a slight variation and they were really good as well.

    So, this weekend I'll be trying it out on anything I can get my hands on. I have Pork Chops and boneless/skinless Chicken Thighs in the Smoke Vault as I type. For tonight's dinner, my wife wants bone-in Beef Rib Steaks, and they'll get the same treatment. I'll add links to any smokes I've done with this rub as soon as I can get them up.

    This rub is so simple, yet the flavors are a mildly-spicy and sweet combination. I've used mesquite with it and cherry so far...great flavors either way. This just might be the all-around blend I've been looking for...if I could only have one dry rub, this is probably the one. I intend to find out much more before the end of this week-end.
