We all enjoy our BBQ. We all enjoy our rubs. Hell, we all enjoy incessantly arguing about which is best. As of late, I have been wanting to create a rub recipe that I would be able to use as my own, whenever I wanted, but I have not been able to discern a viable starting point.
To that end, I figured, why not use the knowledge of the Commentariat to cobble together a possible winner? I haven't yet worked out all of the kinks as far as how this will work, but I figured that I would give it a go and wing the shit out of the rest of it, and hopefully by the end, a new rub will be born.
As far as starting it off, all of the recipes I am seeing are generally consisted of 12-15 ingredients, so that is the range I am looking for. I will open this up to ingredient suggestions from the time of this posting until 6:30 tonight. At that time, I will compile a list of the ingredients given, and then create another post that will serve to whittle the ingredients down, by suggestion and vote, to both number and what we all think will taste best.
This could either become a raging success, or dismal failure, but I am OK with both outcomes. As far as ingredients, only those posted in parent comments with the title INGREDIENT SUGGESTION will be counted as valid, feel free to argue among yourselves underneath each parent.
