Pork Stank

When it comes to using Pork Stank as a pork rub you can apply the rub in advance with some people liking to apply it 8-24 hours before smoking. The truth is that the majority of the rub's molecules are too large and will penetrate less than a 1/2" into the meat during this time. A good pork rub is meant more as a surface treeatment for flavor and to create the bark. I like to apply the rub just before cooking in combination with a thin layer of oil (olive, canola or vegetable oil all work well) as most of the flavors in the rub are oil soluble (dissolves easily). Spread the rub generously on the thicker portions of the shoulder.

Hand blended from brown sugar, sea salt, California paprika, demerara sugar, grains of paradise, onion, garlic, yellow mustard, chili powder, brown mustard, black pepper, rosemary, marjoram, clove and allspice.
