An easy one to put together is the Alton Brown 8-3-1-1-1 formula/ratio.

8 parts brown sugar
3 parts salt
1 part chili powder
1 part paprika
1 part mix herbs and seaonings

I made a batch a couple of weekends ago and use "pounds" as my measure:
8 pounds brown sugar
3 pounds kosher salt
1 pound chili powder
1 pound paprika
1 pound mixture of cayenne, black pepper, granulated garlic, onion powder, basil

I didn't figure the price but bought everything at Sam's. Made 14# of rub so maybe $4.25 per pound. I sometimes buy Jack's Old South rub for $11 per pound - love it, but it's too expensive for vending/catering. The first time I bought Myron's rub was back in 2006 or so and got 25# for $75.00 delivered at the next cook off!!
