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!

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.

I made this rub for the son's ribs and they were just delicious! He let them marinate in the fridge overnight and cooked them on the grill low and slow for two hours. They were so good that they didn't need sauce. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

Delicious rub! I rubbed onto ribs, and let them sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. They turned out to be delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
