Franklin claims to use 1:1 salt to pepper ratio, and Mueller claims 1:9. Both by volume not weight.

1. Both stretching the truth?
2. Possible that both are being accurate?

I have tried 1:1 and found it waaaay to salty when applied in enough quantity to taste the pepper. havent gone quite as high as 1:9 but sounds like it would taste more like munching on a mouthful of pepper than a mouthful of beef.

Thoughts? Personal experiences?

franklin uses kosher salt which is a larger grain also he lets his pepper age.
there has been a statement from an ex employee that franklin does not just use salt/pepper but this is not confirmed.

as for the saltiness of the franklin, remember he spritzes the bbq through out the cook and also the rub is quite light.
i believe that the salt/pepper ratio is 1:1 and it works with his method and as for mueller yes its very peppery but also i think its not a fresh pepper and as such not as peppery

Yep the difference in quantities of rub used by them in the respective videos is amazing. Franklin looks like more or less 'standard' quantity and Muellers looks black before it even hits the smoker. Gotta try me a 1:9 just to see.....

The thing to note is that they deliberately use old pepper. It takes away the intensity of the pepper.
Aaron franklin has noted this on many an occasion.

I tried to go.. Bastards are not opened Sunday's! Closest I've done is his granddaughters joint LA barbecue.

Have had franklin too... Not much in it.

All comments about the pepper not being intense are true

Franklin uses a "16 mesh black pepper" pre ground.
