  • Re: First firing - need pork rub recipe

    Hey willrev

    Welcome to the forum.

    Here is my rub,

    1/2 C paprika
    1/4 C fine Sea salt
    2 C Drk. Brown Sugar
    2 T Dry Mustard
    1/4 C Chilli powder
    1/4 C Cumin
    2 T Blk. Pepper
    2 T Garlic powder
    1 T Onion powder
    1 t Cayenne pepper
    1 T Nutmeg
    1 T Cinnamon

    My friends, family and I like this on pork and chicken. We are not into a lot of heat and the next batch may have even less pepper. I find that leftovers the next day can be spicy, the heat seems to develop overnight. This rub is a work in progress, I have been playing with it for about a year now. I started by researching about 50 or more rub recipes on the web and picked what I thought sounded good. Developing a rub is slow work, it takes a large enough batch to test enough times to get a good impression of that recipe, then modifications have to be tested all over again.
