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?
