I too am guilty of over-rubbing. I ruined a perfectly good rack of Berkshire spares :(

I have always marveled at the amount of rub I see used in some cooking shows. I tend to go on the light side. Sometimes I wonder if I need to use a little more. But, I like the smoke to do most of the work.

The first time i did ribs without a deflector in my uds, i rubbed them the night before, then rubbed them again before going out to light the drum.

When they were done they had a real hard bark on them and were barely edible and they did not get rave reviews

You should try boiling them in mustard and then applying the rub.
