You will probably find that it loses a lot of it's heat when it is cooked.

Tried some on some shrimp yesterday. I did not put them on the grill. Just put them in a pan with some oil. They were very good. Today I am going to do some filets on the grill.

I had never even thought to use it on seafood.

What type of filets are you making?

Torrential rains here today, good thing it was a work day and not a BBQ day for me here!

Ribs are thawed in the fridge, I'll have to judge the weather as to cooking Sat. or Sun., I think Sun. is more likely. I'll rub 3 racks and leave one rack au natural for a control specimen.

They were beef filets about 1 1/2". Cooked them to 160 on the webber. It was a little sweet on beef. Still enjoyed the flavor.

Well I bought two slabs of spares for Sunday. Forecast looks good other than maybe a little wind 10 - 15mph Shocked I plan on putting the rub I normally use on one and 'mds2 rub' on the other. I would love to put it on butts for pulled pork but I have been doing a lot of butts on my CG lately and 9-12hrs is a lot of babysitting. I am thinking of getting a WSM for my longer cooks Very Happy

I plan on inviting a couple friends over hoping to get a couple more opinions.

I will report back when the cook starts!

We're just under an hour from pulling my ribs off. I've been sending my thoughts to Mr. MDS in PMs most of today as I've been using the rub.

Ribs are done!

Remember that these are my thoughts and impressions. As we all know, everybody's palate is different. My techniques may vary from those of others.

I started with two racks of fresh pork spares, trimmed to St. Louis style. I used MDS2's rub on one rack and a rub that I would normally use on the other. Cooked on the top rack of the UDS at an average grate temp of 250. Used Rancher charcoal with pecan wood for smoke. No water pan or heat diffuser. I intentionally kept the smoke light to let the rub stand out as the principle flavor.

As requested, here is my honest, unbiased opinion of MDS2's rub sample that was sent to me.

Upon opening the vac packed sample, the rub had set up into a very solid cake. No problems there, just had to break it up. The rub itself was of a very fine grain. Almost powdery.

The first taste straight out of the bag resulted in a heavy impression of chili powder, cayenne and possibly paprika. Noticed only the slightest hint of salt or sweetness.

I applied a moderately heavy coating on the rack and rubbed it into the meat. No mustard etc. I applied a bit more and set in the fridge for about 30 minutes while I fired up the UDS. The ribs were on for just under 5 hours when they passed the bend test. No foil was used.







Final impressions? This rub was recommended as a rib/pork rub. Tasting the cooked product, I did note a bit of lingering spiciness, but little else flavor wise came jumping out at me. The chili powder that was a predominant pre-cook flavor had mellowed significantly.

For my personal tastes, I would add more sweetness to the rub if using for pork. I am curious as to how this rub would fare on something like a chuck roast or beef ribs. I do have enough rub left over and will test on beef as soon as possible.

Overall, this rub reminded me of a spicier variant of Wild Willy's Wonderful Rub out of Smoke and Spice. I do think this rub has merit, but I would tweak it a bit for my personal use. I'm sure that my cooking process had an effect on the overall outcome.

That is my $.02. Thank you for letting me be part of the tasting experience!
