I have a smoker, but it is a pain to use frequently...I think this rub gives a pleasantly smokey flavor to your meat...without the smoke....add more cayenne if you need more heat..


  1. Mix dry ingredients together.
  2. Add enough liquid smoke to make a paste.
  3. Rub into meat and allow to marinate at least overnight.
  4. Follow your favorite method for cooking pork!

I mixed this up exactly as written, and had it on a pork tenderloin. While it was a bit spicy for my taste, I found myself becoming strangely addicted to the flavor and couldn't resist a quick bite of pork each time I passed the fridge. Will make this again, but I'll probably cut back on the cayenne pepper, and possible a bit on the black pepper as well.

I wish I could give this 10 Stars. I used only 1 tbsp of coriander and it was awesome. The flavor was incredible, like it had sat in the smoker all day smoking. I paired it with KC Masterpiece original bbq sauce and what a combination...the flavor of the pork alone would have been enough. This is the best recipe for pulled pork and my mom is taking the recipe home to MA with her.
