Pork Rub

g8golferg8golfer Posts: 845
Trying to find a good rub for a pork shoulder or porl tenderloin. I'm new to the egg so I'm needing some help. I did a porl shoulder a week ago and it turned out awesome but the rub was terrible. I'm all ears. I'm willing to try store bought or even mixing some up using a recipe.

    My vote goes to DP rubs as well. Buy a sample pack and figure out which 2,3, or 12 you prefer. :)

    Check the Memphis Dust recipe at amazingribs.com.  I use it for most all my pork.

    Coffee Rub         (turkey, chicken, beef & pork)

    Equal part: Instant Expresso Ground coffee

    Equal part: Brown Sugar

    ½ part: Black Pepper

    ½ part: Kosher Salt

    ½ part: Garlic Powder

    ¾ part: Ancho Chili Powder


    Don't worry on exact, just close on measurement. I used to use turbinado sugar but we like with brown better. This is pulled from  MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In Fl then tweaked. I find the ancho chili powder is far less expensive in the bulk spice area than the bottled area ( have used both light or dark version). I make it starting with a half cup  Instant Expresso Ground coffee  and work from there as it seems to store well if sealed

    MCR is awesome. I tried it on turkey for Thanksgiving a couple of years ago and fell in love. I use it on steaks and lots of fowl. Always gets great reviews from guests and everyone loves the mocha flavor.

    Thanks Mickey for introducing me to MCR !!!!

    Shoulder and tenderloin are vastly different beasts IMO. I like an aggressive run with butts or shoulder such as Bad Byron's Butt Rub. The tenderloins get a variety of more subtle rubs in my house such as Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express and DP Raging River. Just have to find what favors you like. The shoulder has exponentially more fat content and can hold up to a more agressive rub than the very lean tenderloin cut.
