When we used this recipe from The Cook’s Illustrated Guide To Grilling And Barbecue to season 5 pork shoulders, we doubled this recipe and ended up with just the right amoung. For 1 pork shoulder, this should do, and you’ll have leftovers.

2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablepoons salt
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablesoon sugar
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon ground white pepper
