The Ultimate Magic Dust Rub

This is one of my favorite seasoning rubs for ribs and pork roasts. It has so many earthy flavors but is tempered by a little sweet from the sugar. This is enough rub for a large cookout. So if you have several racks of ribs or a couple pork butts to throw on the smoker, then try this one out.
