A couple of weeks ago mix some up for a brisket and had some left over every since then I have used it on Ribs, Chicken and every else and love it. You actually taste the meat in stead of the seasonings. And you?

Lately I've become more and more of a fan of just using salt, pepper, and smoke. I had s recent trip to TX that really drove home how effective that can be. I've been doing an S&P layer over other rubs on some cooks and have been enjoying the results a lot. I've been using coarse for both and going 50/50 by weight.

Yep, Aaron Franklin's establishment in Austin is ranked as one of the best in the country and he's always been very open about his secret rub,... Kosher salt and coarse black pepper!

I'm not a fan of rubs or marinades and I don't sauce my meats (serve it on the side) but I do love salt and pepper and it is basically all I ever use. I guess it's just a personal thing.

Salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder is my go to home rub most of the time.
Other times I put nothing on the meat at all. When smoking or grilling.

It depends on how fancy I want to get on what I use. However Salt and Pepper is nice and simple and the basis of all good seasoning in all cooking. It doesn't add flavor but accentuates what the ingredients taste like.

I did the rub thing for a bit (still do sometimes) but S&P for me as well. You taste what you're supposed to taste.

Why use any seasoning or smoke at all then, if all you want to taste is meat?

I use only olive oil and salt...after applying I let meat come to room temperature...seems to produce a little bit better crust on the sear...

I agree 100%, I never understood people making this statement. I understand you don't want to overpower the meat, but we all run smokers because we obviously like the flavor profile it provides. There's nothing wrong with a rub that compliments the meat.
