There’s lots of nice, fancy rub recipes out there with all sorts of exotic spices. Don’t get me wrong, these have their place for certain. Sometimes however, like when cooking for 100 people, you’ll want to opt for something cheaper and more convenient to make in big batches.
One good general purpose rub recipe I can recommend calls for equal parts of salt, ground black pepper, paprika and brown sugar. Follow this recipe you can easily create a giant tub of rub, for a crowd or for long term usage. Two cups of each, two quarts of each, doesn’t matter. It won’t last forever, but it should be fine for six to eight months if kept in an airtight container. The ingredients here are cheap, and not too volatile.
