help with first smoke
hey fellas im doing a pork butt for my first smoke and i lost my rub recipe should i just go buy one or should i make one and if im making one i need a new recipe give me a good one fellas pron to come:doh:
I bought one the first time I did a pork butt. Tonight I'm doing a combination of brown sugar, salt, pepper, and chili powder on a couple butts. Kind of a personal preference. If you can make a good one, use it.
I usually make one...don't really measure, but here's generally what I put in:
brown sugar (or raw sugar if you have)
dehydrated onion (ground up in a mortar & pestle)
Flavor profiles are personal preference so it's hard to tell other people what to do. I like my pork rubs sweet but with some heat but not a lot of heat, but you have to do what is right for you. Personally I make my pork rub and take full advantage of the spice rack I have in the pantry. Regular sugar, chili powder, cumin, garlic and onion powders, paprika, maybe cayenne powder. Play with the amounts of each to your likening.
My vote: Make your own. Take notes on what you put in it. Add notes on what you liked about it and what you would do differently next time.
Repeat as necessary. :thumb:
I've done shoulders with rub and shoulders without rub. I don't see much of a difference and I've never had anybody notice a difference that has eaten my Q. Either way I cook them, the hungry folks that eat them sure like the results. I do too.
Salt & Pepper!
You can buy one if you wish, or you can make one..

2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Mild Chili Powder
2 tbsp Paprika
1 tbsp Ground Cumin

1 tsp White pepper
1/2 TSP Cayenne Pepper (use sparingly or not at all)
Kansas City Rub
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup paprika
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
heres what i went with made a lot i hope i like it had all of the ingredients in my kitchen
I dabbled with making my own rubs in the past.....now I just buy 'em ready made.
For butts I use Bad Byron's Butt Rub 95% of the time.
Puts a great bark on it that seals in moisture. Once I take it off the pit at 195 degrees, I wrap it in foil and let it rest. The Bad Byron's really tastes great as you break it up into the Q.
