    Henrik's pork rub recipe

    This is my own rub for pork, like boston butt or ribs. It is not hot, but has a ’twang’ from the ginger which goes really well with pork. Compared to Memphis dust it contains less sugar and less herbs, but is far from flat. I have made the batch size small on purpose, as I usually whisk this together the day before or so, and use it all at once.

    1 batch (for 1 large slab of ribs)
    0.5 tbsp salt
    2 tsp paprika powder
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tsp ground cumin

    Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and apply on one slab of ribs. I sometimes also apply some extra brown sugar right before placing the ribs on the grill, but not always. If you do try it, let me know what you think.

    It's kind of a mix of the Memphis dust and HRR, sans the Rosemary and chile powder. Looks good!


      So, did this ultimately evolve into KC Royale?

        Keyword here is ‘evolve’ 😄 The KC Royale is pretty far from this one, but yes.

        Oh, for sure it's not the same. I was just curious if you evolved this or started from scratch

        That's a really good question. I started from scratch is the answer, I wanted a 'clean slate'. It took a while, but it was a lot of fun trying out different combos.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
