Hi everyone. I have not been on much lately, but have continued to cook on and love my BGE. We are having 8 people over for a "Round Robin" Dinner next Saturday and I am doing babyback ribs for everyone. I am getting a little tired of local rub's (Rudy's, Salt Lick etc.) and wondered if some of you might have a suggestion or two for a good rub. Most of these folks are use to hot Texas rubs and I am looking for a chaange or new ideas.
Thanks in advance.
Round Rock, TX

    My favorite is Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express. The hint of coffee really adds a delicious and unique flavor.

    I like Rudy's on my ribs too. Now, I'm not much of a sauce fan but if you like Rudy's back flavor, mabye try a couple of different sauces?
    Happy Trails

    Thirdeye: This is our main go-to rub. Trouble is this area has a really good Rudy's Store and everyone is use to it. I gurantee though that 70% ir more of my ribs are done with Rudy's Rub.

    How about making your own. Not very professional mesurments but 1/2 brown sugar, of the remaining half: 1/3 peprika, equal parts chillie powder and cracked pepper, powder ginger. Add powder ground red pepper for hotness to taste. The two ingredians I play with is the cracked pepper and ginger. Most of the time adding more. The cracked pepper and sugar really play nice with each other and the ginger gives it that "something differant" in a good way.IMO

    Thanks eveyyone for the ideas. After we cook something for awhile it gets a little harder to improve! As always a great group of people.
