“This perfectly seasoned dry rub is perfect for smoking pork butts, ribs, and beef briskets. It gets a little kick from just the right amount of cayenne pepper, plus the unique flavor of sassafras. The brown sugar creates a nice crunchy 'bark' on the outside of the meat.”

I cut this back to TWELVE servings. I followed the recipe exact only I omitted the file powder only because I could not find it anywhere and I don't have money to order special ingredients for one recipe. Even so, we REALLY liked this rub. I mixed it with a half cup of flour and coated pork chops with it--absolutely delicious. NO leftovers. NOTE: When I cut this back to 12 servings, this coated 6 biggish pork chops (with the half cup of flour).

yes, this recipe makes alot of rub. i cut it down to a third to use on a pork butt and i had enough rub to season at least 2. this is by far the best rub i have ever used. i love the addition of file' in this recipe. this will now be my go to recipe for any meat calling for a spice rub.

This was a fantastic rub... tried it out on a nice pork butt on our grill. Only thing I didn't use was the file powder - couldn't find it. But I'm still looking, and want to try it again!
