    Besides DP rubs, I like a few blends from Penzy's. Ozark blend is really good on chicken, and eggs too.

    For salmon I've found NOTHING better than Dizzy Pig Raging River rub, put on over a thin coating of honey.

    For ribs, "Bone Suckin Sauce" rub is awesome, the regular, haven't tried the spicy.  

    Steaks, just plain salt and pepper and nothing more.  

    Chicken- BGE brand Sweet Maple, BGE Green Pecan, or Dizzy Pig Tsunami spin

    that's a tough one.

    Simply Marvelous (Sweet Seduction, Apple, Cherry) are all good on chicken

    DP Raging River is great on Salmon

    Oakridge Santa Maria is nice on Steak.

    I also like DP Red-Eye Express or Cowlick on Steak

    context is important :)

    Dizzy Pig is always good. 

    Another brand we've really grown to like is Tom Douglass' Rub with Love.  His African Peri-Peri has become our "go to" rub for chicken!!!

    Also, did my best pulled pork yet by using John Henry's Raspberry Chipotle Rub.  I know, sounds weird, but it's a sweet vs spicy thing that adds another layer of flavor!! 
    Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee
