Default whatcha think of this rub?

I am smoking 2 pork butts and decided to try cumin on one but not on the other. here are the recipes I used.

1/3 cup salt
1/6 cup turbinado sugar
1/6 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Black Pepper
1 tablespoon Paprika
1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Red pepper
1 Teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chili powder

The second butt got the same stuff but with 2 teaspoons of cumin as well.
There will be pictures when I put the butts on.

Looks similay to my rub but I don't use anythere near that much salt.
Of course, the only true way to test those rubs is to taste them so let me PM you my address....
Will be interested in hearing how you liked them - that's the important part.
