    Memphis Dust -vs- Magic Dust

    Hello from Coon Rapids, Minnesota! We’ve got about 12 weeks of decent weather here (I really want to move South!). I make the best of it though. Today, I smoked up three racks of ribs with two of them covered in Memphis Dust and one with Magic Dust. Made scratch baked beans and skillet corn bread too!

    Sorry Meathead, but to my surprise, the Magic Dust won 7-1 with friends and family. Both were fantastic!

    For some reason...I can’t post my pics 😟


      Post your magic rub recipe instead?


        Welcome from Indiana.

        Are you referring to Mike Mills Magic Dust?

                      yes, it’s the Mike Mills recipe. And of course we know about the Memphis Dust.


                        leol2 did you weigh this or just use a straight conversion to Metric? I'm not certain that mustard powder and other dry spices convert that way.

                        Which recipe was the original? American or Metric?

                          I hear you so recipes ideally should be by weight

                          Actually, you should be fine converting from mL to tbsp/tsp, etc., since you're going from volume to volume. Where HouseHomey is right is when going from volume to weight, since the spices have different densities.

                          The United States is the only place that regularly does recipes by volume. The rest of the world does it by weight.

                          tdimond I don't see how that's the case when we don't know how the recipe was written or where the conversion came in. Good is good though no matter how you slice it.

                          As the twig us bent somgrows the tree.

                        I made two perfect pork butts 8lbs each on the BGE ala meathead. made and used Memphis dust and wow! came out perfect.
