I really like what I've tried of John Henry's, especially his brisket rub.. Others I've tried and enjoyed include Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust and Bad Byron's Butt Rub.. BBBB has a bit of kick to it, and I sometimes cut it with some additional brown sugar.
My egging space has been a long time coming.. Finally was able to get it done this year, although it wasn't without complications due to a contractor (and supposed friend) bailing on me halfway through it.
We bought the house 8 years ago. It had a small covered porch where I could operate in bad weather, but we immediately added a concrete patio to the back. However, the concrete was improperly sloped and rain would stand on it. We also didn't use the patio mostly due to little shade and, being in the south, that just means you're baking while your food is too.
So my solution this summer was to cover the patio by enlisting an acquaintance I've known for a long time. The final results are great IMO, but myself and other friends and family ended up doing a large majority of the trim work over the course of 4 weekends. Thankfully the framers had done a good enough job getting it to where I could finish it. I have to say it's nice sitting under it knowing I did A LOT of the work.
