I prefer commercial rubs myself. The last batch I ordered was from Zach's Spice Company and they were all fantastic. I just found them through a yahoo search and they had the best prices so that's why I went with them. I make homemade rubs and sauces from time to time but they always end up tasting the same.

I took some of the rub recipes here and doctored one up of my own that I have been using for about 6 years. Haven't ever found a commercial rub I like.

Pre-made rubs can run $1.00++ per lb.

'Nuff said.
If those figures are what you meant to type, please explain it for me coz that lost me.
Pre Made Rubs are waaay cheaper?
