This rub is great on Chicken, Butts, Ribs and even smoked Whole Rabbits.
It started out as the rub I was using on my Baby back Ribs. One day I was getting ready to smoke Butts and did not have any rub left. So I used this one, Then the next morning when I was about to take the Butts off and put the chicken on. I thought well lets try it on the chicken also.
That turned out to be a good move. As its great on those also.

Pete's Rub
1 cup canning salt Or if you have only the larger salt throw it in the blender
1/2 cup black pepper
2 tablespoons of Garlic powder
2 tablespoons of Oregano
2 table spoons of paprika
2 tablespoons of Chile powder.
Mix well

I mix up 4 of the above and store it. AS it gets better after sitting for a few days mixed together. I go through a 4 batch per month of this.
Enjoy and hope you enjoy .

Still use a sweet rub for pork but this rub is very neutral and I've started using it on just about everything else. Very easy to make and store.

Guy's your welcome and as for a neutral rub that's what I like about it as I have found out with a great smoker like the SmokinTex I would rather not cover up the taste of the meat and that smoked flavor with anything that may cover it up.

TNpete, tried this neutral rub on 3 lb butt this weekend. I took the liberty of adding 2 lb Beau Monde as well. Nice onion/celery flavor alone, but I thoughht a good add to this rub. To me, there's something about celery and pork together....

Turned out dynamite, and just wanted to post a "Thanks" to you for sharing!
