Flava help

I'm doing 6 butts for a small catering jobbie...

any suggestions on a rub that is not too spicy or too sweet...but a nice balance? I got some older folks and don't wanna kill them off quite yet. Pretty much they requested the meat to make ghetto Po'boys. I don't want to over power the meat with smoke either.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know Wolfe Rub...but I think the cinnamon would throw them off, ya think???

30 Helens agree...to disagree.

For older folks, where you are, I'd just go with a mixture of salt and black pepper, some sugar of your choosing, and a little of whatever spice is liked in your area...cumin, chipotle powder, etc.

Simpler the better.

Mr. Brown works well. If you mix the bark in real well with the balance of the pulled pork, it's not real hot at all.
I hope this isn't negative!
