Hi Chef. Thanks so, so much for sharing your dad's BBQ rub. We have been enjoying this in my own home for awhile now. The only change I made was not to the recipe itself, but to the name. We call it "PAPA's BBQ Rub" I recently could not find the recipe that I printed, so I came back here to get it... only I noticed something. Are the measurements printed on here correct? When I watch the video, it appears your proportions of ingredients are very different in some cases... The brown sugar for one. So, I just wanted to check with you and see if it's all good on the recipe. And, I wanted to say thank you again for sharing this :)
