I ask my wife what's for dinner and food appears.
I decided i needed to be able to cook two things, signature dishes if you will. I chose pulled pork and meatballs.
My meatballs are as big as a childs fist and they rock the fucking house down. The pulled pork is really good but im still adjusting the recipe to take into account the fact that I rarely have any of the fancy shit in, so you cant just cook it when you fancy.

My shepherd's pie slays all
Chicken parm., sausage and pepp. and ribs are my specialties, thank you very much.

Jebus you can just buy a packet of jerk spices from the market.
I'm pretty comprehensive when it comes to spices because of the amount of curries and pickles I make. To be fair there's nothing there that's particularly unusual. Celery salt maybe, but it's used a lot in American BBQ recipes.
Besides, the taste it gives to meat is stunning. Especially if you use it as a rub on meat before smoking it.
Stop being hyperbolic. It's hardly uncommon for rubs to have more than 30 ingredients, so 15 isn't excessive by any means, and there's not exactly any grafting that goes into tipping tablespoon measurements into a tub.

I'm surprised you can taste the celery salt through the ten kinds of pepper and chili you've got going on there.
It's not excessive heat or pepper given the quantity of finished mix. You can taste every ingredient (except perhaps turmeric, which is mainly there for balance of colour) and it's balanced well. You end up with a sweet, smokey flavour that gradually builds in layers with a medium level of heat and really gets into the flavour of the meat without overpowering it.
Especially if, as I said, you smoke the meat in a smoker (I tend to use applewood and a whole chicken for this mix because it works so well and doesn't dry out the meat) - it really does bring it to life.
A good cut of meat needs little more than salt and pepper, imo.

I eat a lot of pulled pork and thought i'd post my most basic recipe in case anyone wanted to try it. I make this in my slow cooker. Super easy and really really good.
Cut an onion into guarters and cover the bottom of the slow cooker.
Put the Pork shoulder in.
Cover it in a bbq rub if you wish. (can buy some good ones in most supermarkets).
Pour over a can of Coke or Dr. Pepper. (I prefer Dr Pepper)
cook on High for 5 hours or 7 on Low.
Take out the meat and pull apart.
Put back in for an hour or two but this time add half a bottle of a BBQ sauce. I tend to get the smokey bbq ones. (you can add more if you wanna go crazy)
Then serve in a bap or baguette. My favourite is the bake at home baguettes you can buy.
You can throw in extras if you like. I've thrown in garlic and chilli before. All down to what you fancy.
I tend to use cider vinegar as well for a bit of bite in pulled pork.
I've used coke before (there's a Nigella recipe for ham that uses it) and it does, surprisingly, work incredibly well with ham and pork.
I'd advise against using cured meat with it though. Too much salt is drawn out into the liquid and tends to seriously overpower the flavour.
Nope, I'm serious.
Get a fucking job
This is poor man's food, there's no room for fancy Dan turmeric or alfalfa sprouts. You want a cheap, fatty cut of neck or shoulder that needs a long slow cook to make it edible, render all the flavour from the fat and bone, and use whatever spices you find growing in a hedgerow.
The approach sounds nice, but it's very often "poor man's food" that is tinkered and altered more than anything else in cooking.
Altered by availability of ingredients rather than design.
