    The wife wants to get me something for fathers day. I just started smoking meats. I am confused about all the rubs offered. I see I lot of discussion about Jeff Rubs.

    What rubs do you recomend for a beginner?

    Should I use different types for different foods?

    I want her to get me some for fathers day.......

    Holla Back Thanks

  5. I use a modified version of Jeff's rub. His rub is great, but I felt the need to tweek it just a bit to satisfy my families taste buds.[​IMG]

    i did a spreadsheet of all the rub recipes from this site on-time. along with a ratio of 8:3:3:1:1  i noticed some things.

    most all start with the basic few spices in differing proportions:  sugar,salt,pepper, onion and garlic.

    from there add heat to taste. ancho chilli,cayenne, chipotle etc etc

    the exotics for flavor: all spice, cooca, coffe , corriander,cumin, ginger etc etc.

    here is one of my favorite for ribs.

    8 tbs fine ground turbinado or brown sugar

    • 3 TBS sea salt -fine
    • 3 TBS Hungarian paprika
    • 1 TBS cocoa
    • 1 tsp Chiplotle
    • 1 tsp cayenne 60k
    • 1 tsp ancho chile
    • 1 tsp ground mustard
    • 2 tsp granulated garlic powder
    • 2 tsp granulated onion powder
    • 2 tsp ground black pepper
    • 1 tsp ground clove
    • 1 tsp ground white pepper

    it's basic and from time time i try new proportions of different spices.

    This is real close to what I have been making for a while now .....My wife puts it on everything..... She put it in some mac-n-cheese the other night....She said that it was the best thing since white bread.....[​IMG]....I haven't tried it with the chili powder or the allspice, but if JJ said it's good I will be giving it a try next time I make a batch.....
  11. I use what they call magic dust...easily found on google.   Love it.
  12. I use one very similar to Chef Jimmy's and Shoneyboy's

    I bought Jeff's recipes but they were not to my liking. A few tweaks here and there and I have something more to my liking. One thing we will probably agree on is that we have individual tastes. Unfortunately, my best rub was a giant pile of all the random sampling of store bought seasoning mixtures, rubs, and leftovers. I cant begin to wonder how many different spices were in there.

    I have officially been converted. Rather than screw up a good thing, I followed Jeff's recipe for a mustard/rub combo on my first Boston Butt in the new smoker. It was delicious. Not sure what changed excpet that I may have used too little mustard the first time. Whatever,.... it was good this time and I will continue to support his product.
