Formaggio BBQ rub

bearzie | Feb 4, 201003:53 PM     4

I got all excited when I saw a recipe in the Boston Herald on 2/3/2010 for Formaggio's BBQ rub. Last summer, I did a test comparing different BBQ rubs and the pre-made rub from Formaggio won.

But comparing what I bought and this recipe, they are completely different. The store bought has chili, cayenne, paprika, sugar, s/p, mustard and garlic.

The recipe given to the Herald has brown sugar, Hungarian paprika, salt, chili powder, pepper, celery seed, yellow mustard seed, cumin and cayenne.

I would think the list of ingredients in the purchased package would have the list in order of the greatest amount first and going down to the least used ingredient. The recipe uses 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of Hungarian paprika into the 32 ounce rub. The pre-made rub has chili and cayenne as the first ingredients.

What gives? I would really like to make my own rather than spend $3.95 for a small package.
