We just got a smoker for Father's day and we tried this recipe since it seemed simple for a newbie. It was outstanding! Easy to make once we understood how to work the smoker. It did have a little kick to it but I thought it was just right. No extra barbeque sauce was needed, even though it was on the table. Two half slab baby backs were done in about 3 hours. I think this is our new hobby!

Used this rub on pork back ribs and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Since I didn't have garlic powder, Season-all salt or kosher salt (used sea salt for the salt), I want to try this rub again, but still have to say it was quite tasty even without these ingredients. I put the ribs on racks in a baking pan, filled the bottom of the pan with apple juice, covered it all tightly with foil and cooked it in the oven at 250 for 3 hours. Then I removed the foil, brushed on store-bought bbq sauce and turned the oven up to 350. At this time, I put the rubbed chicken breasts in a baking dish without apple juice, brushed them with bbq sauce and put them in the oven, too. I cooked all for an hour, basting with bbq sauce every 15 minutes. The results were delicious! Thanks, baumer64.

I have been using this recipe for about a year with baby back ribs in my electric smoker and and give it top marks. It is really fall off the bone ribs. Outstanding.

Did this in the oven at 260. They were done in a little over 3 hours. We also omitted the sugar and the apple juice. Good rub flavor that didn't overwhelm the rib flavor. Will definitely make this again!
