Ethan's Rib Rub recipe

I don't normally do commentary on this blog, I just post recipes for my family and friends to enjoy.  But I am making a exception this time.
I went Tuesday and bought myself and early Mother's Day present.  An Electric smoker.  Then I thought about all the meats I would smoke this weekend.  The first thing was a ham last night, so we woke up to a fresh smoked ham still hot out of the smoker, and had ham and biscuits this morning. All I can say is amazing that ham was WONDERFUL...  Then this morning I put some ribs and a brisket on to smoke, that was for dinner...  Again WONDERFUL...  I love this smoker.  Anyway back to the recipe, I ran out of my normal rib rub, so my husband and I tried and new one, and this is it...  I am calling it Ethan's rib rub (because he measured the spices and mixed it all together for me.) , and I made a few small changes to...  Now this rub has a little kick to it, but it's not to spicy...

4 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne

Mix ingredients together.  Store in an airtight container.

Now we used this on the brisket, and I will try it on the ribs next.  
I hope you enjoy!!!
