Dry rub seasoning for spare ribs.

Top Review by Tom E.

Sounds delicious but, obviously, this is not a dry rub since it calls for molasses. I'd suggest changing the recipe name. For a true dry rub, I substituted about a cup of brown sugar for the sugar and molasses and it was great!

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.
