Lots of good advice above...
Different paths...
Paul Kirks book is good. You can learn while building rubs.
First, salt and pepper.
Second, add garlic powder.
Third, add onion powder.
Etc.
There are a lot of recipes in it.

You can start with a balanced recipe and tweak.
The butt glitter recipe works well. You might like something a little hotter, you can tweak it. Or something sweeter...tweak it. Like oregano, add some.

Another way is find a rub that you like and try to make something similar.

I started making rubs first. In hindsight i wish that i started with a few commercial rubs first and then had a target in mind. It would have saved me some money. I am still experimenting. Enjoy the ride.
