Looks like some great recipes! I use the same spices, at a little bit of different ratios and depending on what I have around. A trick I learned, sounds crazy but it is good, for smoked meats rub the meat with yellow mustard before applying the rub. Helps keep the meat moist and holds on the seasoning.
