2Dog- the best rub for anything is one you've made yourself... that said...
I know my husband uses a mix of things that always includes paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper, along with various whatever he's got laying around.
If you want to know what's probably in Emeril's "Essence":
8 tablespoons paprika
3 tablespoons cayenne
5 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
6 tablespoons salt
2 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 1/2 tablespoons dried thyme
Or some variation thereof. Looking over those ingredients, it's probably a good rub. I think Dr Dan uses Brown Sugar and Paprika mostly in the stuff he's smoking rather than grilling because of the whole burning thing. I know he rubs under chicken skin as a rule.
And NC BBQ sauce ROOLZ. Save the ketchup for yer french fries.
1. Do NOT put Swiss Cheese on teriyaki.
2. Do NOT combine Swiss Cheese (or any cheese other than Provolone, for that matter) with Genoa Salami.
That is all. Maybe. More rules may be added as the need arises.

Do NOT try to fuck the little holes in Swiss Cheese under any circumstances.
I'm really hoping that warning doesn't come as a consequence of personal experience.
Invokes Rule #1
1.) What is the best *rub* for cuts of beef? (This is not limited to brisket but for any cuts
of beef such as steaks or London broil) And where can I obtain them? If you are willing to
share your private mix/recipe then PM it to me and I promise not to share it with anybody.
Go to www.penzeys.com. See if there is a Penzey's Spices in your area, or else thank your lucky stars that you can order from their website.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE their Northwoods Fire blend. I joke it's great on everything but ice cream. I love me a good steak liberally rubbed with the stuff.
My brother likes the Bicentennial rub though.
Yea, you know it's funny I was saying the same thing.
I've had wasabi ice cream. It was GOOOOOOD!!! so is Ginger Ice Cream! YUM. Heat and cream go good together!

<laughs> You've definitely made some incredible ice creams. Though....the white pepper was definitely not for me.
And Girty - the wasabi and ginger ice creams are *awesome*. Have you tried the green tea?
