Sharing my rub recipe(s)
« on: November 11, 2012, 08:42:30 AM »
Hey all. New to the forums but just wanted to share my homemade rub recipe. This isn't any mysterious recipe handed down through my family or anything. I've only been smoking for about two or three months since U stumbled across a BOS on sales at my local Menards. I found a recipe for a Kansas City style rub and then just started experimenting.

The below recipe us what I make for rib rub. I like a sweeter rub for ribs than for chicken pork or beef. For butt rub, simply reduce brown sugar to 1/4 cup.

1/2 cup brown or turbinado
1/4 cup paprika (Hungarian or traditional)
1 Tbs black pepper, freshly ground
1 Tbs kosher salt
1 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs cajun seasoning (Tony Chachere's)
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
1 Tbs Mayacama's Savory Salt or Spike Seasoning
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp cayenne

Do not skip the Mayacama's/Spike. If you aren't familiar, they are both one of those "catch all" seasonings akin to Mrs Dash (but superior in terms of taste). I was turned on to Mayacama's first by a buddy of mine, but it is incredibly difficult to find. Spike has a very similar taste and once I discovered it I use them interchangeably. Both products contain hydrolyzed vegetable protein, which is a natural source of MSG, so avoid if you have an intolerance.

Happy smoking.

Looks easy enough :). Never seen or heard of the Mayacama Seasoning. Thanks for sharing.

My buddy gets it from a friend on the west coast. I've seen it in a couple of random gourmet food stores, but Spike is a passable impostor at a much lower price point.
