I had some shredded beef at a friends house last week and it was awesome. I asked for the recipe for the dry rub that they used and this is the guts of the email that they sent me in regards to how they prepared the meat. The recipe makes a large quantity that may be just right for what it sounds like you are going to do. I don't think you would be disappointed. The following is their message to me...

This makes 6 cups. I used about 1 cup for about 8 pounds of meat. Just make sure you rub in good and thick. Then let sit overnight.

I marinated the meat in Italian Dressing 4 hours no longer or will break down meat. Then I took it out and wiped it dry and put brown sugar and onion flakes on it and let it sit for a couple hours. Then I wiped it again and then did the rub.

My parents make it at the restaurant with just doing the dry rub and everyone liked it.

2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup kosher salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup garlic seasoning
1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup lemon pepper
1/4 cup onion salt
1/4 cup celery salt
2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
2 tablespoons whole celery seeds
1 teaspoon crushed cloves
1 tablespoon cayenne
1/2 cup Mrs. Dash original blend
1/4 cup salt

You can use sea salt instead of kosher salt. It is really cheap and by the salt section.

Now let me get this straight, you want a 6 inch combover and 4 inchs of butt hair (complete with cling ons) waxed off while sipping on a peachy wine cooler?

No problem..... I'll start heating the wax up tommorow:Cop: :Cop: :CU:
