    My favorite is Black Bart. It is a rub from Tasty Licks which is no longer open. If anyone would know the recipe of the rub I would love to get it. Thanks

    50/50 kosher salt and black pepper. For rubs I use Mortons, for general cooking I use Diamond Crystal. 

    I don't understand the fascination with commercial rubs.

    I'm currently in my lazy stage of rubs (aka commercial buy).  I am now with Hardcore Carnivore Black with extra pepper.  Create a great bark and flower profile.
    I find Black Ops too sweet.  
    Should I revert to my own, it's S&P with paprika and some garlic.  Lighter on the salt than the 50/50 above.  FWIW-

    I've been using the one the Chef-Steps guys developed, even though it is for an SV brisket.  The ingredients can be a bit of a pain to track down but the end result is incredible:

    S&P 50/50  -- see below at 6:29. 



    I *sometimes* add some meat church holy cow to my 50/50, but I don't think the end product is any better for doing it.

    Ever tried 55-45 or 45-55 ;)

    Sure it does.  Just think of it as a lot of extra rub!

    I’m going to give you some real good advice my friend. It’s up to you to heed it or not. 
    First and foremost, never trust a hippie. No matter what. 
    Second, never trust a liberal. I mean NEVER. It can only lead to disappointment and usually something extremely gay. It’s just their way sadly. 
    Third, invest in a little of this:

    Use it in large quantities. If in doubt, see rule 1 & 2 above again and the following pics of bark. 


    Only listen to clean cut, well shaven conservatives my friend. They will always lead you right and keep you on the straight and narrow.

    A guy complaining about liberals and then telling someone to buy spices from Monterrey Bay is pretty funny. Isn’t California the epicenter of liberalism?

    If I am making one myself its been 50-50 Salt and Pepper for as long as I can remember. If I am using a commercial one its usually Meat Church Holy Cow. I've noticed lately though that when I use just S&P the brisket can on occasion have a flavor profile similar to peppered beef jerky. Not texture wise, just taste wise. Does anyone else get that when using just S&P? I think its good but I am considering changing it up and adding a few others, maybe Garlic Powder or Paprika as some have said.

    Yep, too much pepper can do that. I don't like eating heavily peppered jerky for the same reason. I love pepper and don't want to get sick of that taste. 

    If you watch Aaron Franklin apply his rub he's using way less than you'd think. I like more salt, so I typically pre-salt heavily with kosher salt the day before, then add pepper right before it goes on - so it's probably more a 2:1 salt to pepper ratio.

    See that's funny, I asked Aaron what he uses and he told me equal parts coarse Pepper and Kosher Salt. I think I'm gonna try less pepper maybe next time 60-40 S to P or maybe even 70-30 S to P. =)

    Oh he does use 50:50, at least according to his videos... I just meant he didn't cake it on as thick or heavy as a lot of people tend to do.

    I dunno man, I get the feeling you're been "off the reservation" so-to-speak in your younger days. That would explain the visceral affinity for anus - which isn't a sex organ and has no gender, btw.

    Also, I don't get the appeal of big, thick, black, hard.....bark.  Cracks off in chunks when you cut into the meat. Tastes like burned sugar or burned something.  I like my bark chewy.  Sticks on the meat vs break your jaw when you try to chew it.

    I see jet-black, carbonous meteorites on display here and everyone oohing and ahhing over them.  I guess I'm just a weird, untrustworthy hippy.

    Had a coworker that was pretty vocal about what other people shouldn't be doing in the bedroom. We fired him recently for using his Verizon hotspot off-network to browse content that seemed to suggest he wasn't as honest about his sexuality as he'd led us to believe. Now I'm not saying @SGH likes a dong in the mouth, or takes one (2?) in the rear, but I'd wager he's thought about it more than once. It's always the ones most vocal that are hiding something...

    You can argue all day about what constitutes depravity and hypocrisy, but there's no denying Southern Baptists have some of the biggest and fullest closets in the country.

    I can't google it at work, but Pornhub's published stats are pretty telling. Guess which region of the country likes the butt sex more than the rest? It ain't the Yankees, mid-westerners or even them homos out in California...

    I’m just laughing at the notion that 69 is necessarily gay.  I’m starting to wonder about SGH’s sexual range, and it’s not even Friday.
