Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I need a pulled pork rub recipe that doesn't contain any peppers--no cayenne, no paprika...

I'm trying to cook pulled pork for someone with unusual food allergies. "Nightshade" spices are totally off the list. That's cayenne and paprika. It also eliminates tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant, and a few other things... but for purposes of rub engineering, cayenne and paprika hurt the most. 

The entire dish also needs to be grain and gluten free... no wheat, rice, corn, corn syrup, etc. If I can figure out a good rub that would go with Eastern NC style vinegar sauce, I should be good to go. 

Working without paprika and cayenne has me stumped. I guess I'd start with salt, pepper, granulated garlic... seems like there ought to be more to it, though. 

Then again, a brisket might be a better idea. 

Any ideas?
