You should make your own. It's pretty easy and there's a lot of great recipes out there.

I use Dr BBQ's big time rub recipe, you can use it as a starting point and expand from there.
Big Time BBQ Rub
- 1/2 cup salt- 1/2 cup Turbinado sugar- 1/4 cup granulated brown sugar- 1 tablespoon granulated garlic- 1 tablespoon granulated onion- 2 tablespoons paprika- 2 tablespoon chili powder- 2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper- 2 teaspoons cayenne- 1 tablespoon thyme leaves- 1 tablespoon ground cumin- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 Tbs white sugar
2 Tbs brown sugar
2 Tbs Kosher salt
2 Tbs paprika (smoked or plain - both are good)
1 Tbs celery salt
1 Tbs cumin
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs ground pepper
1 Tbs onion powder
2 tsp chili powder (if extra hot, may want to cut the cayenne)
1 tsp cayenne pepper (if chili powder is mild, may want to increase cayenne)
1 tsp dried oregano
Mix everything in spice grinder, results in tan powder or leave it coarse if you want. Also good to flavor homemade BBQ sauces. Can be stored for up to 6 months. Good on chicken, pork or beef.
Almost every kitchen has these dry ingredients, easy to make.
After buying a couple, I make my own, too. I have a Penzy's near me where I get the spices, but you also could buy them in bulk at a discount club. On some meats, I don't like overwhelming rubs because I want the taste of the meat to come through and we also like a little sauce (a rip-off of Arthur Bryant's that I spent several weeks perfecting). I use a bit of chipolte and chili pepper along with the usual suspects, but i don't add cumin.
simply marvelous, the whole line up is fantastic. So is anything by obie-que. I actually disagree with making your own rubs. By the time you buy all the different spices you need, you're in for a fair amount of money, 6-8 bucks for a shaker is well worth it in my opinion.
A favorite of mine for chicken is Emerill's Chicken rub. Makes great smoked wings on the egg - I even used it on a fried turkey!

The next time I make chicken, I'm going to use Emiril's Essence as a rub. It tastes kind of strange, but it is strangely delicious.My son and I made up a rub for a pork shoulder the other day. It was very simple - 1/2 c Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning, 1/3 c brown sugar, and 1 1/2 tsp dry mustard. It was just about perfect.Tim
