For a real eye opener try a few bones without any seasoning. I did some testing one time and my control was peanut oil (which I mix with my rub) and nothing else. I was surprised how good these plain ribs tasted.

As for the rub I put on butts, last time was:
  • 1 Tbsp black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Rosemary
  • 1/2 Tbsp Coriander
  • 1 Tbsp Hungarian Paprika.
  • 1 Tbsp Ancho powder
  • 1 Tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cumin
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard powder

I mix this with enough peanut oil to make a slurry and smear that on the butt so it is not a dry rub I guess. As others have mentioned, due to the thickness of the meat, the flavor from the rub has little impact on the results.

Pork butt is just such a big, thick chunk of meat. I focus on getting it cooked just right, and then serve it with lots of flavors, whether it is a PP sammich, or some carnitas style tacos, or Cuban style roast with beans and plantains.

Am I alone on this?

3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon hickory smoked salt or 2 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper

Howdy, partner !

I have a can of that Plowboy's coming way any day. Looking forward to it.

Did some STL ribs for the inlaws last weekend. Three slabs with the usual sweet stuff and one with just butt glitter. They thought I messed them up because they were dry rubbed and they passed over them. Lucky me because they were pretty darn good.

Penzey's BBQ of the Americas rub has been great to me so far. (It helps that the Penzey's factory store is right up the street from the in-laws' place, too.)

Simply Marvelous for me, but don't ask me which is my favorite amongst 'em, because they all work really well on pork.

As far as the simplistic route goes I think everyone should be able to make great pork with just S&P, but we like the zing a good piece of bark brings to the table.

Well well, fancy meeting you here. Lots to learn here so plan on staying a spell.

I'm not the only one from "that other forum" here. Ole NCH hangs out here some also. (he's incognito though)
