"Also goes very good on some chicken, tri-tip steaks, or pretty much anything BBQ. I do a lot of smoked foods, and it's perfect."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix brown sugar, white sugar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt together in a bowl. Store in a sealable container in a cool, dry place.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Rub ribs with olive oil or mustard so rub sticks on meat. Do a good coat of rub over both sides and then wrap ribs with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight. I smoke them for 3 hours, wrap in foil with butter and honey, and then smoke wrapped for another hour. You want to keep temp at about 260 degrees F (125 degrees C). Enjoy straight off BBQ pit.



We loved this rub! Followed the recipe precisely and then the recipe notes in regard to wrapping and refrigerating overnight. We slow smoked the ribs and then applied some homemade Bourbon BBQ...

Outstanding rub! BBQ sauce is Literally running through my veins! Rubs go hand and hand with pork ribs and this delivers the good stuff. Thank You Smokinmeats:0 Love it!
