This can be used on ribs (spare or baby back), pork, or chicken. My husband also likes it on popcorn. If you would like less heat, you can omit the cayenne pepper. If you would like no heat at all, also omit the ground chipotle pepper. If you choose to use regular salt instead of kosher salt, decrease the amount of salt to 1 1/2 tablespoons. The pepper does not have to be freshly ground, but the brain won't let me enter it in any other way. So just know that you can use store-bought coarse ground pepper - that's what I do.
