Default What "secret" signature spice/flavor do you use in a rub?

You don't have to give away your whole recipe, but what "secret" signature spice or flavor do you use in your rubs that most people may not think to use?

For example, some people use coffee, some use chocolate, some use cinnamon. Just a unique flavor that sets your rub apart. Not paprika, sugar, salt, pepper, etc.

If you don't want to give yours away, no need to reply. Just trying to get the creative juices flowing.

Nutmeg, and coriander used in just barely able to taste amounts works well especially with pork and chicken but can give a nice flavor to brisket also.

Aleppo chile is one of my secret ingredients in my homemade rubs it has a raisin and cumin flavor with a moderate heat level.

i am fortunate to have a grocer who has numerous dried chili peppers that can not be found elsewhere. Each time I make a rub I use something different from the selections.

Salt, pepper, granulated garlic and sometimes I will go crazy and add some chili powder from pendery's. My pork rub is the same with a little turbinado sugar.

I like to experiment a bit, so I've used everything from lime juice powder to powdered beer. (Yes, there is such a thing)

Cumin is one of my faves for rubs and also when I make chilie but I'm getting a little spicy wanderlust and am looking to expand my horizons.

I use a dash of cinnamon in my rib rub and in my KC Red sauce.

I tried cherry cool-aid once. Couldn't even taste it. I used 5 packs mixed in with my basic pork rub for 2 butts.

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.
