Dry rub seasoning for spare ribs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix molasses and sugar together stir.
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix well.
  3. Use rub generously on spare ribs (I prefer cooking slowly at 200°F for about 4 to 5 hours, wrapped in heavy foil, finishing on outdoor grill with favorite barbecue sauce).
  4. Rub is sufficient for two to three full rack of ribs.
  5. I have retained juices from cooking as extra sauce when serving ribs.

I love this rub! It's always a hit. It works equally well on ribs and chicken, and I personally don't need to add any other sauce to the meat when I use this rub. I like this rub so much, I've even tried to make savory cookies with it... Ubfortunately, that did not work out as well ;)

Made for a memorial bbq it was an amazing hit. It says 4-6 servings but the rub covered 8 pounds of ribs.
