where to start!!

I have been reading a lot of book on barbecue and some on rub and sauce now what I’m trying to get at is that none of these book talk about making you on rubs sauce yes but not rub so what I like to know is what is a good starting point. I know that most rubs start with salt and sugar and add from there. Let me know where I could find a book is and a good starting place.

Thanks,
Missing Link.

The basic proportions I go by for a base rub are something like this:

By Weight
1 Part black pepper
2 Parts Pure chili powder
3 Parts salt
1 Part sugar (optional if making a low heat rub)

Add flavor enhancing spices and herbs to taste
Some examples are:
White pepper
Coriander
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Oregano
Thyme

Now you have to put your hand to it and try a few and see how they taste. Also don't judge the rub by dipping your finger in it. You have to cook it and then see how it tastes. Keep good notes so you remember how you did it too.
Sage
Ground Rosemary

I had to reread youre post a couple times. I get this India vibe from it.
Anyways, I can tell you that Steven Raichlins books are good. BBQ USA has some good rub recipes but actually you can get good rub recipes here or just search the net, there are plenty to choose from. I dont hardly ever use sauce so I cant help you much with that.

If yo can pick up a copy of "Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue Sauces" 175 Make Your Own Sauces, Marinades and Dry Rubs.

He takes you step by step through each process, giving you lists of proper spices and their relationship to each other in rubs and sauces, and takes you through the construction of your own Dry Rub.

250 pages of great information and recipes. Very easy read and highly recommended.

I agree with the Cap'n. I started with Smoke and Spice. I use the "Southern Succor Rub" still on butts in my catering business. Very basic.

Bruce that is a real good place if you want to learn how to make rubs. Paul gives you a good technique to begin with. Read bottles of commerical spice blends, you will get a good idea of what spices go together and on what meats.

Rub

I start with Tones Cajun Seasoning and add the other ingredients I have in my kitchen. It is a good rub all by itself, but I add dry mustard, cayenne pepper, some sugar, etc.
Just experiment with what you already have and you'll come up with the right flavor for you and your family and friends.

I have The Doubleday Cookbook and The Joys of Cooking and they both have seperate chapters for different types of meat. These chapters have lists of spices that work well on pork, beef, chicken, etc. Once I made a rub for a pork roast using all of the spices I had at home that were on the list. Amazingly, it tasted great and has been requested many times by my family. Sadly, because I am a little of this and that kind of cook, I can never hit the same taste twice. Cooking for me is always an adventure and I guess for my family it's the same!

All the books mentioned are pretty good 'starts' for you, Link.
