this IS one of those rubs that gets the lid opened every time i see it. a couple sniffs and oh heaven! making some more beef ribs today :) used this rub on pork ribs and oh so yummy! it smells better than the other rubs ive tried that are somewhat similar. thanks for posting! i keep a huge bottle of it mixed up year round! :) i beleve i used The Rock and Roll BBQ Chef's Jalapeno Dust # 212062 mixed with a little more salt in place of the jalapeno salt called for here.
Used this last weekend for a Family BBQ and everyone loved it. I skipped the JalapeÃ±o Salt (didn't have any) and replaced it with a dash of crushed red pepper. I also substituted onion powered with onion salt (ran out). The overall flavor was good. I would recommend using the onion powder over the salt.
You're correct - from Alton Brown's "Who Loves Ya Baby Back" episode
Thank you SO MUCH for posting this recipe! It is fabulous! We used it on country style ribs. I rubbed the mixture on the ribs and let them sit for one hour. We grilled them over low heat and let them cook slowly over the coals. Perfect and tender, and what flavor! No sauce needed to go along with the ribs. I will be using this all summer long, and trying it on different cuts of meat. Thanks again--this is one to make again and again!
