If you could add a couple ingredients to a rub....

lets take a very basic rub of salt, sugar, garlic powder, red pepper, & paprika. Keeping it simple, what one or two spices would you add for pork, chicken, and beef. I'm trying to help out some first timers with some ideas of simple but good rubs for each meat, Thanks for any help y'all give me, Tim

To build a base I would switch up a little, salt, sugar, chili pepper (choose the pepper you like gives lots of choices) black pepper, onion and garlic. From here you can change up based on meat.
Pork and poultry I like cumin.
Beef celery.
From there I would add red pepper ( not much flavor but adjusts heat well).
Paprika again not much flavor but will allow you to adjust color as you like.

CAYENNE!!!!

My favorite simple rub would be salt, chili, and lemon/lime.

You're the one that said and I quote "Can you please send some Wolfe Rub Original and I'll promote your products, cause that is what Bruce used in previous competitions that we did well in ribs". That's why I sent you 4lbs of Wolfe Rub and a banner for the Jack and the Royal, rememberr?? Not my fault you think it's too coarse and don't have the patience to use it correctly. There are a handful of other teams out there that use WRO on ribs and butts and consistently finish in the top 5 and one team in particular that was at the Jack and Royal as well as you and finished above you. So...........to make a long story short, they used what got them there and did well there too.........what's your excuse tubby? Next time you want free rub at least make it worth my while.
