    What's your go to recipe? I tend to throw something together that included brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder and probably something I am forgetting about.

    I don't use brown sugar on ribs .... tends to burn .... turbinado works well

    pretty much this. i tend to change it up a little every time, but this is the basic idea.

    That is a legit link. I added a tiny bit of brown sugar and rubbed generously for the loins today. But that was after 24 ish hours in a salt/brown sugar brine. I hope I didn't overdo the brown sugar...

    I'm going to have to post my dry rub recipe, pretty basic, but I like the flavor a lot, its similar to jlw's list from my recollection. I just have to pull it from the recipe/cookbook box

    Party done. The pork was a huge hit. I might try something different next time but this is a safe go to for sure.

    paprika, black pepper, brown sugar

    baste with butter, white vinegar, and rub mix- helps keep moist and marinading time down in my experience - no expert here just like it :)

    The dry rub really locks in moisture. Its phenominal.

    Yes, this.

    I've really been nailing this recently. Perfect smokey, spicey bark. Deep smokey ring penetration into the meat.

    I need to smoke something Saturday. And maybe Sunday too. I need some smokey meat.

    when you're not in front of the smoker, grill, pit, hearth, whatever your mood, I can say I've used my dehydrator for great jerkey pairings with beer

    Made a Hickory Brown Sugar Beef jerkey that had a nice sweet glaze that you crunch through to get to the hickoryish beef - goes really well with any summer session
