    this is what i have been using and i like it.
    Meathead's Memphis Dust

    Memphis Dust Recipe

    Yield. Makes about 3 cups. I typically use about 1 tablespoon per side of a slab of St. Louis cut ribs, and a bit less for baby backs. Store the extra in a zipper bag or a glass jar with a tight lid.
    Preparation time. 10 minutes to find everything and 5 minutes to dump them together.
    3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup paprika
    1/4 cup kosher salt
    4 tablespoons garlic powder
    2 tablespoons ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    2 tablespoons dried rosemary, ground to a powder
    Optional. Add up to 2 tablespoons crushed dried chipotle, cayenne, chili powder, or other hot pepper. Be careful with this ingredient. Not everybody likes it as hot as you do! You can leave it out if you are serving to a large crowd that is bound to contain a few wimps, and serve pepper flakes on the side.

    I like the one that pande said to use. Maybe you should try Jeff's the guy thats runs this place and his rub is really good too. I use butt rub sometimes and then you have a new rub put out by Old Bay and it's really good too. Thats my penny's

    You can buy on this site. It's worth it...really good. I have also used butt rub but it's pretty spicy.
