Would that be the same as this one? You will have to mix up a batch and compare them for us.  ;D ;D

Magic Dust

To make it a little more hot and spicy, increase the mustard powder and black pepper to 1/4 cup each.
•   1/2 cup paprika
•   1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
•   1/4 cup sugar
•   2 tablespoons mustard powder
•   1/4 cup chili powder
•   1/4 cup ground cumin
•   2 tablespoons ground black pepper
•   1/4 cup granulated garlic
•   2 tablespoons cayenne
Mix all ingredients and store in a tightly covered container. You'll want to keep some in a shaker next to the grill or stove. Keeps indefinitely but won't last long.

Be careful about calling yourself and EXPERT! An ex is a has-been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure!


Yep, that looks like the same recipe from his book (Peace, Love, & Barbecue).   Will see how the packaged stuff compares! (and if they 'tweaked' it any)


The Magic Dust recipe sounds pretty good 10.5.  It has all of my favorite ingredients.  I'll give it a try.

Where there's smoke, there's food.


I'd have to check my notes at home but that sounds pretty close to the rub I make.



I use some thing real close to this to rub on pork butt.


My office neighbor uses it on everything.  Even his scrambled eggs..   I've got 2 pounds of it waiting in my mailbox at home.

I have heard about that rub numerous times on this forum.

Thanks 10.5 for posting it

I am not as "think" as you "drunk" I am.


Yeah, thanks Chris.

I hope that is the same as what came in the bag, as it was GOOOOOOOODD...


I think I know why they call it "Magic Dust".

I just made a batch of this and I sneazed 22 times.

I subbed hawaiian raw sugar for reg sugar and blended it fine.

It taste great! Thanks squirt and 10.5

I might snatch off a small bottle of it and add some Cardamon.

Thanks 10 point for recipe.  Had a package but lost somewhere.  Made a batch last night ans it taste like i remember.  Finely ground cane sugar might be a trip.  Might have to try it.  Thanks again.



I use Tubinado Sugar in my rubs, less likely to burn and processed allot less than table sugar.


I was kinda wondering about the difference in the coarseness in the sugar as far as measurment ingredient. Should I add alittle more to take up for the bulk?
