Never thought of reverse engineering a commercial rub as there is so little time and so many choices. DP has some great rubs and well worth the cost, IMO. There are hundreds of others out there. @caliking suggested John Henry's Mojave Garlic Pepper rub, his go to on beef. JH not available in any store near me so I ordered six different JH rubs and have tried 4 so far, all are very good. Other than the basic garlic salt, Kosher salt, black pepper, cayenne used by APL, I now buy all my rubs. The results are consistent and it is fun to try different offerings.
Peugeot is the BGE of the pepper mill crowd, IMO. Great product with lots of options. Many retaurant supply stores seem to stock them, they are virtually bullet proof. Mine will undoubtedly end up like @RRP, in my estate sale. Amazing how they make such a great mill, but man do the cars with the same name ever suck.
Single probe (food only) Maverick, 710 I think. Probes are same as 732/33 etc... from what I've heard. Both of mine (732/733) work great. Even though it is a food probe, @slovelad what were you cooking? Not steak or anything cooked (grilled) direct I hope. These things do not like direct cooks as the IR from the lump exceeds the operating temp and fries the probes. Used for indirect cooks where the cable is shadowed by a setter leg, works good lasts long time.
Wrap in foil and like both politicians and diapers, change the foil often. Don't wash or submerge the probes, suggest you wipe with a scrunge or other rag that will take the big chunks off the probe - if you need to soak do it in a glass or cup so the probe cable junction stays dry. I wipe the probes and Thermapen with alcohol swaps.
