Thanks Bill, I have used a commercial brand of Kansas City rub and been a tad disappointed but I’ll try again with this recipe. It’s not easy to find bulk quantities of rub ingredients here in UK and, when you do find them, they are very expensive..but I’ll persevere! Can I ask another question please? When you smoke a pork shoulder do you remove the tough skin completely before seasoning/rubbing or merely cut through it? I remove all of it but it isn’t usually clear in book recipes. I think the authors assume you are reasonably experienced in the basics and know about such simple things! Cheers, Brian




Our New book – PaleoQue…


I have a new book out called PaleoQue.

But first, just exactly what is a Paleo Diet?…

It’s a very popular diet on which you basically eat like a caveman. You can eat fruits and vegetables, lean meats (preferably grass fed), seafood, nuts & seeds, and healthy fats.

You should avoid all processed foods and refined sugars, dairy, grains, legumes, starches, and alcohol.

BBQ fits nicely in a Paleo diet. That’s why I wrote PaleoQue. Those poor Paleo dieters were cooking their Boston butts in crockpots and boiling their ribs and doing other terrible, unmentionable things to their chicken and briskets! The horror! The horror!!

I had to rescue them!
