I tried this recipe on some pork ribs on memorial day. They turned out wonderful. I made 2 small changes. I was out of kosher salt and used sea salt instead. I also substituted garlic powder for garlic salt as I felt there was enough salt already in the recipe. It turned out so well I made a quart of it to keep on hand for the summer.

One word.....Amazing! My family and I loved this recipe!!! I did not have any Emerils Essence nor did I have any all spice and it still came out fabulous. I create this rub and keep it in a bottle so i have it on hand. Thanks for sharing. I will recommend it to all my friends and family!

Great rub! I used this on London Broil with worcestershire sauce and broiled it...yummy! My DH liked it alot, my little girl didn't (she's really not into spicy foods). It's a little too spicy for little ones but the adults will love this. It has a nice Southwest kind of flavor. This mix makes alot, too!
