Here's one that I found and use:  This BBQ spice rub helped win the coveted "Best Ribs In The Universe" for Mike Scrutchfield at the 1996 American Royal Invitational

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup non-iodized table salt
1/8 cup brown sugar, dried
4 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder

too much sugar

and it's pork shoulder, what do you need a thermometer for?

as to a rub for pork shoulder, i lightly coat in oil (not so dry rub ) then goya sazon and adobe, fresh garlic, cilantro, some onion. i like to load mine up with sodium, pork butt/shoulders just taste so good swimming in it

now i feel that i have to cook one,,,heading to the market anyways, hopefully there will be one in the expired section
