ISO A Really Good Dry Rub for BBQ

I'm tired of my regular rub. It's OK but I'm looking for something better.

Please share your favorite rub recipe for BBQ meats.

I never really measure. My rubs tend to be a bit typical also. But, it works. I have been adding things like, ground dried pepper blends(ancho, chipotle, pasilla, etc). I also like hints of ground cardamom and/or allspice. Have you ever tried black cardaom pods? They are stronger and more pungent thatn their more common cousin. I have also been dry roasting things like mustard seeds, peppercorns, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, in a cast iron pan, then grinding them and adding them to the rubs.

So, sorry. No recipes, but hopefully a few ideas....

I am looking for an all-purpose rub for BBQ meats - ribs, shoulder, brisket, etc.

Thanks for the steak rub. I'll try it.

I don't use the same rub for pork, beef or chicken. For Texas style brisket it is just salt and black pepper. Type of BBQ (culture) also determines the rub ingredients.

For brisket I keep it simple, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Tried this one on a Pork Shoulder for pulled pork a couple of weeks ago.

6 Tbsp Ground Coffee
2 Tbsp Coarse Salt
2 Tbsp Paprika
2 tsp Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Coarse Pepper
2 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Garlic Powder

I haven't made a rub in so long I'd have to see if I wrote it down somewhere, but it's pretty basic. Going from memory; equal parts of garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder. then half that amount in turbinado sugar and half that amount in cayenne. I like turbinado over brown sugar because it doesn't clump and keeps well in my shaker.

So I see sugar mentioned in several of these rubs.

I've never put sugar in mine and am wondering about the reason behind sugars in a rub.

Wouldn't the sugars "burn" ?

I've never really given a whole lot of thought to a rub .. I usually just have a blend of onion powder, garlic powder and smoked paprika that I use.

I'm thinking I need to expand my horizons !
