    And I wanted to know who here makes their own sauce/rubs? I usually mix up some Kansas City style rub like this:

    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup paprika
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    3/4 tablespoon garlic powder
    3/4 tablespoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon cayenne

    I've never made my own sauce, though. I usually use Stubb's Spicy sauce that I pick up at the store. I like it a lot. I figured today I would try to make my own sauce (from somebody's recipe of course), so I made some like this:

    3 cups ketchup
    1 cup karo dark syrup
    1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
    1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    1 tablespoon garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon onion, minced
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 teaspoon liquid smoke
    1 teaspoon black pepper

    It's not bad, but I haven't taken off my ribs yet to try it on them. I found a recipe for what's called "Magic Dust" today, and mixed some up to use for a rub next time I smoke. It's supposed to be pretty good, here's the recipe:

    1/2 cup paprika
    1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons mustard powder
    1/4 cup chili powder
    1/4 cup ground cumin
    2 tablespoons ground black pepper
    1/4 cup granulated garlic
    2 tablespoons cayenne

    Anybody have any good secret recipes for sauces and rubs?

    Aren't they kind of hard to light?

    I slow grill ribs at about 220*. Toss a few pieces of smoked bacon across 'em. Gives it a great flavor. You can eat the bacon after you're done too :D
