I too have been looking for a good rub recipe. I don't buy the small jars so buying rub in bulk is a tough task.
I buy 10 lb or 5 lb packages and put into 32 oz Shaker Top Containers, but you have to be carefull as some rubs are almost all salt.
It's hard to find someone who prepares a rub that cares about the end product as much as you do. Most retailers are looking for the money, but not all.
american spice has an acceptable rub, but they are overpriced.
I am open for any suggestions for bulk purchases or for a recipe to try if captndan wishes to share his.
