I made the rub as directed. I used it on chicken and pork before barbequeing. The first impression is of sweetness, then spicyness. It was delicious on both meats, and obviously doesn't add any fat.

Great Rub!!! Only problem is it's about as addictive as it gets!!! Now I'm rubbing EVERYTHING, chicken, pork, beef, ribs, my ex-wife, no wait, that's rubbing out not in (just kidding). Seriously though This is a wonderful recipe and really enhances the taste of meat and poultry. Try it! You'll LIKE it!!!

Fantastic dry rub. Used this on "beer can chicken" (chicken cooked on grill plopped onto a beer can). GREAT DRY RUB!!!

This rub is gloriously delicious!! OMG!! I used it with the recipe for Smokemasters Smoked Chicken (#100742 - Try it!! Sooo yummy!) It was so good, that as soon as I type this review, I'm going to run over to the store and pick up a couple of beef briskets and try it on that.

Awesome, outstanding, dy-no-mite ... not enough adjectives for this rub. I bought some beef ribs to go with our 'meat fest' BBQ today (Father's Day). I wanted to try different rubs and different meats. The beef ribs with this rub were without a doubt my favorite. I applied the rub approximately 18 to 20 hours before cooking then I cooked them in the oven 'slow and low' for about 5 hours ... which was probably a bit too long .. they were literally falling off the bone. Then they went on the grill for a few minutes to crisp them up a little and applied some barbeque sauce. Totally awesome! Can't wait to try the rub on pork and chicken. Thanks for a great recipe.

This rub is simply awesome!! When I was deployed to Iraq I would have my wife make it and mail it to me over there. This was a huge hit with my unit when we cooked out. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

I'm vegetarian, so I used it on tofu. Dipped a thin block of tofu in melted butter, rolled it in the rub, and then pan grilled it. Really formed a nice crispy crust on it. Tasted sweet at first, and then delivered a nice pop of spiciness at the end. Really nice! I am going to try it on paneer, tempe, and seitan next...

This was a huge hit and I am so happy that I chose this particular rub recipe! I love to grill and it feels terrific when the recipe is a really good one! I used it on pork spare ribs the rack kind not country style. I love to make everyone comfy and satisfied when they visit and this week has been a blur and Zaar recipes have made a big hit! Thank you so very much! Hugs, Jelly

I have had this recipe copied for many moons, and have just recently gotten around to using it. It made delicious BBQ ribs, and I will certainly not wait long before I use it again. What a taste!
