Instructions to make:

Sledge's Sweet and Spicy Rib Rub

This dry rub can be used on pork or beef ribs, chicken, chicken wings, beef, pork, steaks, etc!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (firmly packed in measuring cup)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup + a little over.. half seasoned salt, half bucks seasoning
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions:

1) Mix all the ingredients together. If you don't have a food processor to mix it with, then use your hands and really work the mix in a larger bowl to break apart the brown sugar so everything is equally mixed in.

2) This recipe will yield a good sized batch of rub that should last you all summer! Just remember to separate the amount of rub you plan on using ahead of working with raw meats or other foods so you don't cross-contaminate your main batch! So when you are ready to start cooking, set a small bowl of your rub aside and store the rest of your rub in an airtight container. Or do what I do and put your rub mix in a freezer bag and store it out of the way on a refrigerator door shelf. It does not need to be refrigerated, but it will stay fresh longer in the fridge! But keep in mind, regardless of how you store the rub mix, the brown sugar in this rub will cause the rub mix to re-clump after it has sat for a few days/weeks. This is normal, just simply break the clumps apart and its ready to be used again!

If you want more spice, add more cayenne pepper! If this is too sweet for you, drop a 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Play with the proportions a bit and you could find your own personal rub!

The only ingredient you may or may not find is that Buck's Seasoning.. if you can't find it you can substitute it with more seasoned salt. And don't worry about the brands. The ones I generally buy are the cheapest dollar a bottle ones. Any brand will really do as I've never seen any major quality difference in a single spice.. I'm sure if my taste buds were better I could probably tell, but I'm pretty low brow. :P

btw, if you want to kick up this rub a bit more, substitute "smoked paprika" for regular paprika. Its supposed to give you a more grilled flavor.. I've never tried smoked paprika though, because its about 8x more expensive compared to regular paprika.. about $6 for a small bottle compared to the $1 large bottle in the pic above. I'll try it the next time I make a batch of rub though.

Also, I've made another rub recipe before.. as posted in this blog entry:

I've used it a couple times, but every time I've always changed or added something because it never fully worked for me.. my sweet and spicy rub is the best rub I've made so far. Its a definite keeper and I've now made 3 batches of the exact same rub with no changes.

      Tuesday my favorite festival of all time for GW2 comes back. I'm more hyped to play than I have been in a very long time. I was a n00b when this festival first debuted, and I'm sure a lot of nostalgia boosts it's memory for me, but even then, I remember feeling that Halloween and Wintersday paled in comparison. When the year spun back around and it didn't come back I was disappointed. Labyrinthine Cliffs is going to be much easier to traverse without the need of the aspect crystals, but the Dolyak Race should still be funny. I'm looking forward to the additions they've made, and I'm ready to grind out Boss Blitz. I hope they've scaled up the bosses properly and made the rewards worth grinding so it doesn't become a ghost town if people go back to Istan.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.
