all my rubs in one post..enjoy

There are as many ways of doing barbecue as there are people--there are no two going to do it just alike. I use both salt and brown sugar in my rubs and sauces and anything else I can find. I don't think I ever make a rub or BBQ sauce the same two times in a row. I may try but there is always something that is a little different. So just play with your sauces and rubs and get them to where you like them. With the exception of when i am catering or in a Q contest, my rubs and sauces are always different

Bam's Spicy Chili Rub
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground oregano
4 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon white pepper
Mix all ingredients in small bowl.

all-purpose rub for chicken, fish, pork, beef, or lamb
1/2 cup dark or light brown sugar
3 tablespoons salt
3 tablespoons black pepper
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin powder
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder -- optional
2 teaspoons lemon pepper -- optional

For a basting sauce or marinade, I add soy sauce, vinegar, and water.
In the top half of a double boiler set over simmering water, combine all the ingredients. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so, until the sugar begins to melt and the mixture thickens.
Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool to 100F. Pass the mixture through a sifter. Use immediately or store in a cool, dark place for several months.

Brisket Rub
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons pepper
1 tablespoon thyme
1 cup dark brown sugar
Mix ingredients well and rub on.

1/2 cup Chili powder
1/4 cup Hickory flavored salt
3 tablespoons Onion powder
2 tablespoons Cumin
1 tablespoon Paprika
1 tablespoon Garlic
1 tablespoon Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon Dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon Lemon zest
Mix ingredients thoroughly.

Poultry Rub
3/4 cup Hungarian paprika
1/4 cup black pepper -- freshly ground
1/4 cup celery salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons cayenne
2 tablespoons zest from 3 to 4 lemons, dried and minced
Mix ingredients in a bowl. Store in a tightly sealed jar in a cool dark place.

Beef Rib Rub
2 parts salt
2 parts dark brown sugar
2 parts sugar
2 parts cumin
2 parts black pepper
2 parts chile pepper
4 parts paprika c
cayenne pepper to taste
Mix well and rub on ribs.

Bam's All Purpose BBQ Rub
1/4 cup coarse salt (I recommend Kosher salt or sea salt)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried rosemary (crushed a bit)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp dry mustard powder
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp hot smoked paprika (not sweet paprika)
2 Tbsp fresh coarsely grated black pepper

Brisket Rub And Sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons dried sweet basil
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon ground savory
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder salt to taste
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 cups water
1 cup ketchup
1 onion; minced
1 teaspoon celery seed
salt to taste

Prepare the rub:
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Store the mixture in an airtight container for up to four months. There's no need to refrigerate it.

To use the rub:
Massage it into the meat thoroughly the night before you plan to grill or bake. Wrap the meat well in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until cooking time, so the flavors will be absorbed into the meat.

Mix all ingredients for sauce and boil 15 minutes. Pour sauce over finished meat.
