If you had to hazzard a guess, would you say that the most popular base ingredient for a BBQ rub is salt, or sugar or something else even?

Paprica then salt, & sugar in small amounts as it will burn and taste like Shee-ite.

2tsp onion powder
2 tbl lemon pepper
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tbl sugar

My rubs have an equal amount of salt and sugar most of the time :)

First and foremost you must understand what each one does to your rub and or crust ( bark ) . Raw sugar will give you different results from regular sugar and or brown sugar .
