Planning in trying some pork ribs for the first time this coming weekend for the NFL playoffs and was looking some suggestions on a great rub

    If you want to make one from scratch, APL's is pretty good.  I use a small variation of it:

    6 Tablespoons mild chile powder
    3 Tablespoons sweet paprika
    3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
    1.5 teaspoons dry mustard
    2 teaspoons garlic salt
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    2 teaspoons black pepper
    1 teaspoon Old Bay
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    Just watch out for the brown sugar as it can burn if you end up running too hot.

    Go with whatever you used before and then you can get a taste/cook comparison.

    I'm back on a Bad Byron's Butt Rub kick lately. I've used dozens over the years. If you are going to sauce them, it's not quite as important imo, but I like to use a spicier rub if using a sweeter sauce.

    Order up some Grand Champion from Texas bbq rubs. Great on pork. The brisket rub is awesome also. Great price for two pound bags.
