Smokey J's Rib Rub

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by BearsFanJeff

A great dry rub for ribs, pork, chicken, or anything else you like to toss on the grill. Rub this onto your meat, let it sit a bit, then let the smoke and heat work their magic. This recipe will make enough for 6-8 slabs of ribs, but if you're not making that much the rub will keep in a jar. You'll have some ready to go for your next BBQ!

Great combination of flavors. Made for PAC Fall 2012.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Rub well onto all sides of your ribs, pork, chicken or other meat.
  3. Grill or smoke your meat right away, or, for best results, cover and place in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
  4. This rub goes well with a little applesauce basted onto the meat during cooking. Use just enough for one light coating.
