Well I made a mistake making my first rub. I got this recipe @ http://www.smoking-meat.com/rib-rub-recipes.html. Best Rib Rub 1/3 cup paprika 3 tablespoons dry mustard 2 tablespoons onion powder 2 tablespoons garlic powder 2 tablespoons ground basil 2 tablespoons red pepper 1 tablespoon black pepper I wanted to make a double batch. I doubled the paprika to 2/3 cup, but forgot to double the rest of the recipe. Unfortunately, I remembered this AFTER I lathered up the butt and ribs with mustard and the rub... LOL ... Well, whats the consensuses out there ??? Anybody ever over paprika their meat, and how was it ???? - Kurt T.
