Default Rub Recipes Without Sugar

I need some ideas for rubs that do not use sugar. My wife can't have sugar because it makes her nauseous.

Start at the basics of pepper with a little salt and work from there. The rub that I use on all pork (and mix 50/50 with black pepper on beef) contains:

Black Pepper
White Pepper (very small amount)
Spanish Paprika
Hungarian Paprika
Ground Chipotle (small amount)
Chili Powder
Tony's Creole Seasoning (I use this rather than a season salt)

Some folks like to add ground celery, onion powder, and/or garlic powder. I dont.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
