Revs Modified Memphis Rub

I like Meatheads Memphis Dust recipe. I like it a lot. But it’s not quite what I want for my own tastes. 

He does a spectacular write up about the sciences of rubs, and has done a ton of his own research. I do regale Meathead very highly in the world of Barbecue, but without innovation, no one gets anywhere. This is my specific version of his rub, I think my adaptations really take it to the next level, and they have become very popular among my friends.
