I prefer "dry ribs" not dripping with any sauce. Just tried this today on 2 slabs of ribs - cooked them slow and low (3 hours at about 250 degrees) great flavor - sweet but sorta spicy. They don't NEED any sauce!
The rub had such a wonderful aroma after mixing. I used this on boneless chicken fingers. They were really good. This was my first time using a rub so I put it on sparingly. Next time I will use more before putting it on the grill.
BEST RIBS EVER. Only thing I do differently is that once I've got them good and rubbed, I drizzle honey on the ribs before closing up in foil. We serve a little more BBQ sauce at the table after brushing on the ribs while they are on the grill. These are my GO TO ribs for summer and everyone FREAKS OUT when I make them. Thanks so much for posting!
This is an incredible rub mixture and will be what I use going forward. Had all the ingredients on hand. I doubled the recipe and used it on 2 slabs of baby backs. Rubbed them the night before a party and let them "marinate" wrapped in the fridge overnight. Then cooked them for 5 hours at 200*. Kept them covered in foil for the first 4, then removed the foil for the last hour to get them crispy. Didn't bother broiling/applying BBQ since we prefer just a dry rub.
This is the best rub I've ever used. I was smoking some ribs and planned on using a dry rub that I had bought. I decided to make this due to the reviews. I did a taste comparison and threw the store bought rub away. Worked great for ribs.
My first time making ribs! I made as directed, but did use one tip from another recipe- removing the tough membrane on the bone side before rubbing with spices. This has great flavor that my husband said was better than the local restaurant! Next time I might decrease the sugar; I prefer for the other flavors not to be overpowered by sweetness. But I could be wrong...
EXCELLENT! I've been making ribs for years, but the family all said this was the best one I've ever made. I doubled the recipe and cooked it 'lower and slower'... at about 250 for 4hrs. Fell off the bone and SO tasty. Thanx!
i love this rub! its good on ribs but honestly its great on pretty much every thing you can think of so don't be afraid to try it on other things as well. great recipe!
Now there's no excuse to buy store bought rub when you have a great rub like this that's so simple to make. Rubbed this on my baby backs and the taste was tremendous. Cooked at 225 for 21/2 hours and snow did not permit outdoor grilling. Still perfect. The ribs were too fatty but that's not your fault! This one's a keeper for sure
The flavor was great. The ribs BURNED on the side that was on the bottom of the covered baking pan. Next time I will put a rack in the pan.
