The two combinations had a sweet flavor. The gospel seemed okay for all purpose rub. I still like the sweet and smokey rub that grill mates has. I need to try those rubs on some ribs. I got them off the meat church site 4 rubs for like $40 something. I need to use them more to see if I really like them. I like that the black pepper was ground coarser and I did like that color it put out also.That looks absolutely amazing, what were your thoughts on the rubs?
