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)
sea salt
paprika
dehydrated onion (ground up in a mortar & pestle)
mustard powder
black pepper
cayenne

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.

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.

Here is a general rub I use on pork and brisket. It tends to give lot's of bark on PP if applied heavily:

3 tbsp Kosher Salt
2 tbsp Turbinado Sugar (can use white as a sub)
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Mild Chili Powder
2 tbsp Paprika
1 tbsp Ground Cumin
1 tbsp Granulated Garlic
1 tbsp Black Pepper
1 tsp White pepper
1/2 TSP Cayenne Pepper (use sparingly or not at all)

Sounds good.


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.
