    I need to try that sometime. See folks using that most basic of basic rubs on ribs too.
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600
    It had a wonderful flavor.Plus there was NO mess to clean up. ;)

    I've talked to a couple of guys in Q joints in NC. They said they don't put ANY rub on 'em. Not sure about s&p, but certainly no "secret recipe" stuff. Keep meaning to try it, but haven't. Yours sure looks good!

    Nothing wrong with using old school methods, especially on butts and brisket. Many barbecuists just call it Dalmatian Rub. I make mine with coarse pepper, and fine sea salt, (and I have another batch with cayenne added) it takes a little care when seasoning because it tends to settle out in the jar...But here is an interesting observation on flavor, it seems to get better after it sits a week or so than when it's sprinkled on separately.

    That is one good looking butt. How many freezers do you have cause you cook all the time. How long can you go without cooking? :ermm:
