I'm smoking two slabs of spareribs this afternoon and I'm going to try this rub recipe on one of them.

Great. Let us know how you like it. I like to rub my ribs ahead of time so they can sit with the rub for a day.

Anything I can do with that rub recipe if I don't like sweet with my pork? Would it work if I just left out the sugar?

It doesn't really taste sweet. You could leave out the sugar or reduce it.

Actually, you can do anything you want with a rub. It's one of those things that is wide open to personal preferences.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the brown sugar adds much sweetness to the finished product. I think it helps create a nice bark though.

Additionally, also paprika, I don't think it does much to the taste but it does add color to the meat.

That's why I was asking

Not much sweetness I really don't like sweet with my savoury (except unsweetened fruit). As a kid I wouldn't eat fried onions because they were too sweet. I'm not that picky any more.

Well, I don't even have anything I can smoke food with yet. I intend to get a Weber this summer. I'm planning ahead. I guess I could try cutting the sugar in half or something.

You'll only know by experimenting. If you're are totally against sugar, just try some of the commercial blends. Emeril's Essence would work just fine in this type of use and has no sugar.

If I was so against a particular taste, I'd leave it out altogether. There's no sense adding even a little, because you know you're going to be thinking about it every bite.
