Ever since we brought our awesome smoker/grill home, I've been on a search for a spicy flavored rub to use on ribs, pork roast or chicken. We have not tried this recipe yet, but it seems to be what I've been looking for thanks to The Food Network and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

5 cups kosher salt
2 1/4 cups paprika (for color)
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons celery powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoons garlic powder
1 cup black pepper
1 tablespoon powdered vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cayene pepper (optional)
Add all of the rub ingredients to a small bowl or container and mix well.
Pulled Pork with Some Serious Bite
3 to 5 pounds pork butt, rinsed with cold water
Heat a smoker to 225 degrees F.
Generously rub the entire butt with 1 1/2 cups Johnny's All-Purpose Rub. Put it in a pan, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove pork from the refrigerator, uncover and put it in the smoker for approximately 7 to 8 hours.
Cooks Note: This can also be cooked in a home oven at 425 degrees F for 2 hours.
Remove the pork from the smoker or oven to a cutting board and pull pork apart while still hot.
You are now ready to serve it your favorite way.
