An easy one to put together is the Alton Brown 8-3-1-1-1 formula/ratio.

8 parts brown sugar
3 parts salt
1 part chili powder
1 part paprika
1 part mix herbs and seaonings

I made a batch a couple of weekends ago and use "pounds" as my measure:
8 pounds brown sugar
3 pounds kosher salt
1 pound chili powder
1 pound paprika
1 pound mixture of cayenne, black pepper, granulated garlic, onion powder, basil

I didn't figure the price but bought everything at Sam's. Made 14# of rub so maybe $4.25 per pound. I sometimes buy Jack's Old South rub for $11 per pound - love it, but it's too expensive for vending/catering. The first time I bought Myron's rub was back in 2006 or so and got 25# for $75.00 delivered at the next cook off!!

What about Head Country Champioship Seasioning 50# for $162.50 that makes it $3.25 a # I don't know what shipping cost but its a good rub that goes a long way I would use it for vendding, and have heard of folks doing so for the price. Even if shipping is 50 bucks its still $4.25 a lb.

I do use it for beef when vending - but had been buying the 7lb container...had NO idea they offered a non-MSG version - apparently MSG is expensive...cause the non-MSG versions are much cheaper...interesting. I do like their rub though - good call!

Trying to copy another's recipe is not my thing. They worked hard for their recipe and had many trial and errors, give them a break and make your own or buy theirs.
