So my wife and I have this recipe for Sweet Meat Empanadas. The reason I like so much is the depth of flavor, its like a little party going on in your mouth. Anyways it uses cinimon and clove and I really like the combination.

As I've fallen for the BBQ thing on my WSM I've kinda wondered where those two spices belong in the BBQ world, or do they? I haven't seen very many rubs or sauces that include them, do they not hold up under the long cooks or is it something else. I would be greatfull for some info on the subject, thanks!

I use both often, sometimes one or the other, sometimes both, depending on what I am making, what I am making it for, and what the other ingredients are in the rub or sauce.

This post (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1980069052/m/4400070474?r=4400070474#4400070474) is a recipe for a paste rub and a dry rub to be applied over it--for brisket. This rub (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1780069052/m/4030052645?r=8870028645#8870028645) contains no heat, nor onion or garlic, as requested by Peter, for whom I created it. This sauce (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1980069052/m/2420098853?r=2420098853#2420098853) is for pulled beef or pork and this rub (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1980069052/m/1950017472?r=8680018813#8680018813) I devised for beef but it works on the darker pork cuts (like butt) as well.

And here (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1980069052/m/8730024584?r=8330094584#8330094584) is a re-working of a rub for someone who'd grown tired of his go-to. This (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1980069052/m/2740061323?r=2740061323#2740061323) (scroll down) is a recipe for a mole I like. And this (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/6680069052/m/1900079035?r=2080010135#2080010135) is for chili, as is this. (http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/6880069052/m/5270044445)

Hope this helps.
