    Not too spicy for me JJ, I Love It!!!!
    I leave out the sugar and kick up the cayenne just a tad!
     
  7. The mild is very good. I just used Carolina Style Rub Some Butt on my last pork butt and really enjoyed it. Not too sweet.

    Come on guys your slacking!
     
  11. I've been using a rub recipe I found online by chef Robert Irvine but I added some stuff and changed some proportions to better fit my taste. This goes well on Pork and Chicken. My friends have been raving about it since my memorial day picnic roast, so I'll share it with you guys here.

    Just did this and combined with the original bubbq...added turbinado sugar.     Hope it works out well, seems like a very good blend of sweet and spice.  I just rubbed my butt and will let it marinate overnight.
