What kind of spice rubs are your favorites when grilling? Here is what I use. I am not too adventurous with this sort of thing but hope to branch out in the near future.

Cumin - for chicken breasts
Lemon pepper - for steak

I got a roast/brisket rub from Williams Sonoma that was great but I could probably have made it myself since it was pretty much just garlic, mustard, and salt and pepper.

BBQ Rub Seasoning for Ribs

2 Tbsp. salt
4 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. cumin ; ground
2 Tbsp. black pepper
2 -3 Tbsp. chili powder
3 Tbsp. paprika

Store in a tightly sealed container out of the heat and sunlight.

To Cook the Ribs
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and take your ribs out of the refrigerator and rinse them under cold running water for a minute and pat dry. Apply your BBQ Rub Seasoning liberally to the outside surface of the meat and rub it into the ribs on all sides over a sheet pan. Tap loose any seasoning that will fall off. Repeat with another rack of ribs.

Place the pan into the slow oven for three hours. Remove them from the oven and set aside until ready to grill them or refrigerate them for use the next day.
When you are ready to grill them, do it over a medium low heat until heated through. This is where you make the choice of whether or not you want them served wet or dry. If you want them served wet (with sauce on them), baste liberally with your favorite sauce during the grilling time. For dry, just reheat and serve the sauce on the side.
