    To redeem my stick in the mud status & give it a fair go, I'll use weight next time I mix it up!

      When Meathead started publicizing the reverse sear method... not everyone thought he was correct. It took people a while to accept that the thermapen was easier and more accurate than pressing on their steaks with their finger tips. Humans don't accept change easily.

      Ah well, all a matter of balance. We got the ones who run ahead, and the ones who make sure stuff is anchored. We need all of 'em to keep the ship on course!

    As I mentioned in Post #11 in this thread, I've been developing a new Excel spreadsheet to convert recipes (like MMD) from old "cups and spoons" style to Ingredients by Weight and as Baker's %. The first version (even though I'm still calling it a Beta release) seems ready to go.

    In it you'll find several types of worksheets:



    The first is an Intro sheet with what I hope is sufficient explanation of what the spreadsheet is for and how it is intended to be used:

    The second is a blank recipe worksheet that you can copy as you start to develop weight-based recipes of your own:

    The third is Meathead's Memphis Dust (MMD) converted to Ingredients by Weight and as Baker's % (basically what Breadhead did his initial post in this thread):

    The fourth is MMD and it shows how to scale a recipe down to a smaller version:

    The fifth is MMD and it shows how to scale a recipe up to a larger amount and how to change the unit of measure when scaling ... in this case from grams to pounds.

    The sixth is MMD and it shows how you might encounter a very large commercial recipe that needs to be scaled way down and converted to grams for home use:

    I invite anyone here to download the spreadsheet using the link below and to use it however it suites you best. I am always open to feedback, questions, suggestions for improvement, etc., and I'll do everything I can to provide help.

    DropBox can be a little fussy at times, so please let me know if the link gives you problems.

    Enjoy!

      Late to the party, but the answer to a maiden's prayer! I want to try MMD and now I can scale it to a a trial size and scale other rubs as well. Many thanks for your great work!

      Wow, I just tried this and it was so much quicker! The only snafu was I didn't have a sense for how much it would make, so I had to switch to a bigger jar halfway through, but it is definitely how I'll be making it in the future. Thanks Breadhead!

        I mix everything up in a Mason jar and cap and shake it instead of stirring with a whisk. No cleanup at all.

        • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
          1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
          2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
          3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
          4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
          5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
          6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
          7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
          8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
          9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
          10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
          11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
          12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
          12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

          Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

          I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
          I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

        #21
        Love it!

        However, I've converted all the rub recipes into larger portions, converting to the larger size thing (cups and tablespoons), and my kids can make a batch of rub on command!

        We do a 4x batch of MD makes Three 32 oz bottles, and a 16x batch of BBBR makes just under Two 32 oz bottles. We are doing a little tweeks on each recipe lately. Those are the largest amounts that easily fits into the Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. With my retail spices from the ole' High Price Penzeys.com, MD costs $4.25 per 32 oz bottle, and BBBR costs $19!

        I need to get some wholesale quality spices!!

          This is ABSOLUTELY brilliant - thank you so much! Over here in Blighty we tend to use weight rather than volume.

              FWIW, the Ingredients by Weight (and Baker's %) method works equally well for non-dry ingredient recipes, too ... in this case Meathead 's Hamburger Secret Sauce: Meathead's Glop! (cleanup is sure a lot easier if all you need to worry about is a bowl, a whisk, and a couple of spoons):

              I'm thinking that I'll start a new thread where we can collect all sorts of recipes by weight and Baker's %. I'll incorporate them into a master copy of the Excel spreadsheet and maintain a link to the most current version.

              I always prefer to measure by weight. I simply wasn't that smart with to think of this. Face palm! Nice work guys!

              are the spread sheets somewhere available or print of a screen shot on the thread only? Tech challenged is I.

              MbmorganBreadhead Thank you for your time and work.

                How is the weight/volume affected when you have a spouse that doesnt close the lid on spice shakers? Does moisture content change the weight much?

                  I wouldn't worry about weight/volume changes with the lid off. I I would, however, expect clumping issues as the rub absorbs moisture.

                  I tend to think that freshness would be more effected, rather than weight/moisture content...

                Speaking as a Brit who is used to only using volume measurements for liquids, I find it very hard to measure say a cup of brown sugar. I can stuff loads of it into a cup or sprinkle it in and put in only two-thirds of the amount. We buy our butter by weight not by sticks (I have no idea how much a stick of butter is!), I could go on but for those of us on this side of the pond, exact weights make it completely unambiguous! Also, we have bigger pints here .... Good news when it is beer that you're measuring!

                Mind you, my best friend in North Carolina told me that the USA is going metric ... Inch-by-inch!

                  I can't wait for the day the US goes metric. It makes sooooo much more sense on every level. Especially, like you mentioned above, measuring a "cup" of brown sugar. I agree with Breadhead all recipes will eventually change to metric weights.

                  The US's top export industries are already metric. The weapons industry and the film industry.

                Why is this a sticky? I mean is MMD all that complicated that we need this? I'm I over looking something? I mean MMD is why I'm here for sure and I'm going to say that I've made 15-20 lbs of the stuff in that time. Have I done it wrong?

                oh btw. You want metric? Move. It's that easy. Not being political here but.... you want it. Pack up and get out. You all are making rub like it's bread! It's just rub. Don't get sucked in.

                I'm going one step further. If you need a scale to make your rub you need to rethink your rub. Just sayin. While you need to be consistent you also need some leeway. Your not making meth for heck sake. M


                Again why is this as stickey?

                  You are being exclusionary and political, if we're being honest. And as Captain America said, stand up for truth and say, "No. You move."

                  I for one, am glad it was stickied. I came here today specifically looking for a Memphis style dry rub recipe. Instead of having to scroll through pages and pages, I found it right away.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
