    Well it works for me! Used it on a pork shoulder. I think it's great. Thanks Jackson! I think I'll modify from Jackson's Average Rub (JAR) from now on.

    I'll WILL ditch searching for true ancho chili powder, and use chipotle powder instead because it has become so easy to find. Reduce cayenne for more mild tastes and make fun additions whenever it tickles me or is suggested. So the JAR was my starting point and my average is now;

    Brown Sugar (raw cane with molasses)- 8 Tbsp, 1 tsp
    Paprika - 5 Tbsp, 1 tsp
    Raw Cane Sugar - 4 Tbsp
    Coarse Black or White Pepper - 3 Tbsp, 2 tsp
    Granulated Garlic (powder works) - 3 Tbsp
    Chipotle Chili Powder - 2 Tbsp, 2 tsp
    Onion Powder - 2 Tbsp
    Cayenne Powder - 1 Tbsp
    Ground Mustard - 2 tsp
    Ground Cumin - 1/2 Tbsp
    Celery Seed - 1 tsp
    Thyme - 1 tsp
    Ground Ginger - 1/2 tsp

    Now I gotta find a 2 cup shaker :-)

    And thanks Dennis for reassurance

    I've only been able to find both ancho chili and chipotle powders in tiny 2 oz or 4 oz containers, if I find them at all. When I can't, I just use regular chili powder. I'm not sure I have a refined enough palate to notice a difference.

    As for the shaker, I just use a washed-out grated Parmesan shaker. They're cheaper than an empty shaker off Amazon, the holes are wider, the labels aren't super-glued down, and they hold 2 to 2.25 cups of rub.

    Make your own chipotle powder. After all, it's only ground up/dried/smoked jalapeno peppers.
    Ancho powder is ground up/smoked/dried poblanos.

    Next time you do a smoke, put a bunch in there. A lot because when ground up, they don't make a lot of powder.

    Both are plentiful up here so you must have them too.

    Both are available at most SM or Mexi Marts.
    Put em in a FP or Spice grinder. Slightly toasting in a CI skillet before grinding adds a whole nother layer of flavor.
    And if you don't do too hot, remove the seeds and veins.

    Different smokes for different folks. Wish the Dollar Store sold gas!
