    Memphis Dust Goof--Need advice.

    I just made another batch of Memphis Dust and realized that I put 1/4 cup of onion powder instead of 2 TB. Will I have an onion forward rub? Is it a potential happy accident? All the rest of the ingredients went in right. I have made this several times with great success and hope this wasn't a huge slip. Comments?

    Scale up the rest of the ingredients and have a year's supply!

      This is what I'd do. If that's way too much and you're worried about it going stale... do you have a vac sealer? If so, put some in a ziploc, seal that, then vacseal the ziploc (if you try to vacseal the powder directly I think it would get... messy)

    Only one way to find out mate, remember necessity is the mother of invention.
    It might not taste like Memphis dust, but it might take on a whole lot of tastiness of it's own.

      That’s only double the amount...double the rest of the ingredients and you’re good to go!

      This why I am a member. Help is just around the corner. I had to look at a table to confirm what you were saying and now I think, what the hell, let's try it with 2 more TB onion powder. Along with time in smoke and this might be something. Can't thank you guys enough. I promise I will tell you the results.

      If ya wind up scaling all the ingredients to match the OP, you can freeze part to keep it fresh.

        I accidently did the same thing a while back and just doubled it like everyone has said. I ended up giving half to my bro-in-law and still had some leftover for next butt or rack so worked out just fine. I've also gone heavy handed with the onion powder in the past and havn't been disappointed so you're likely good with that route, too. cheers!

          Some very good advice, up in here...

          My take is: if anybody tryin to make anybody believe, fer even a brief, an fleetin moment, they've never goofed up, cookin , then, imce, one would haveta be a dang danged prevaricator, or ain't never tried cookin nuthin much, at all...

          Smoke On!!!

              Taste a pinch and see how you like it with the extra onion. It might be fine.

                No reason to always stay between the lines . . . . . give it a whirl and let us know what you think.
