      this IS one of those rubs that gets the lid opened every time i see it. a couple sniffs and oh heaven! making some more beef ribs today :) used this rub on pork ribs and oh so yummy! it smells better than the other rubs ive tried that are somewhat similar. thanks for posting! i keep a huge bottle of it mixed up year round! :) i beleve i used The Rock and Roll BBQ Chef's Jalapeno Dust # 212062 mixed with a little more salt in place of the jalapeno salt called for here.

      Used this last weekend for a Family BBQ and everyone loved it. I skipped the Jalapeño Salt (didn't have any) and replaced it with a dash of crushed red pepper. I also substituted onion powered with onion salt (ran out). The overall flavor was good. I would recommend using the onion powder over the salt.

      You're correct - from Alton Brown's "Who Loves Ya Baby Back" episode
