Default Need to make a butt rub

Hello everyone. Got my Boston Butt out and ready to rub up and realized I was out of rub! Does anyone have a good butt rub I can make up?

5-6 pound Boston Butt pork roast 1 cup Big Daddy's Song of the South dry rub Pig Pickin’ Sauce (receipe in text below) Here is my own dry rub. Not too spicy and without the clove or allspice. It really is a wonderful compromise between the pepper based, highly spiced rubs and the very sweet ones. Mix thoroughly. Keep stored in cool, dark place until ready to use. Rub the mixture into pork or chicken and place in refrigerator overnight. Grill, bake or smoke the meat as you ordinarily would.

Here is my basic butt rub:

1 Tbls paprika
2 tsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder

This is my adaptation of EK's NC pullled pork rub from SR's book: The Barbecue Bible on page 155.

I've used this one and it's good.

Southern Succor Rub
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup turbinado sugar
2 tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne
Makes enough rub for a 6 to 8 pound Boston butt.
