    hi, yep i felt handcuffed by making rub w/ salt premixed in, so i stopped doing that a few yrs ago...

    as for the recipe i realy like the chili powders and ginger.

    is the call for muscovado or turbinado sugar as they dont burn? as easily as regular brown sugar?

    They'll burn. But sucrose doesn't burn at typical smoker temps (<350?). The flavor of the former is a little deeper, the texture of the latter is more dry and so it mixes with the other ingredients easily. Any sugar will work here though.

    Kevin - I made your rub recipe a few days ago & used it on two pork butts which came out very tasty. I like this rub which is quite different than the Magic Dust I had been using. This one now moves to the front of the shelf. Thanks!

    Update on Kevin's butt rub - I put some into a beef clod that I ground for hamburgers. Added a little olive oil and rosemary on top. Mmmmmm. Excellent. Way to go Kevin.

    Kevin;
    I will be attempting to prepare Pork butt for about 30 people. I figure I will need about 3-4 butts. Will this make enough rub or should I double / triple it?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    This makes quite a bit, but I would triple it for sure. Once you salt the meat and put your first application of rub, wait about five minutes and then apply a second sprinkling of rub.

    No, you don't have to make a road trip. All the rubs I've made involving chiles can use substitutions very easily. You'll just get a different flavor. Maybe Kevin can elaborate on what you will get with what, because I've never used Moritas. The Chipotle will make it really spicy.

    Thank you Jane. I did not mean to say that I could not make a road trip as more of what I have at hand.
