This rub is quick to throw together and tastes great. I used it on baby back ribs and it really gave the meat a wonderful flavor. Ignore the calories and servings on this recipe. I had a lot left over after coating a full slab of ribs on both sides.
This rub is great. The pork ribs had a tasty crust outside and so moist, tender and juicy inside. I get frequent requests for these. My daughter has to have these for her birthday dinner. Thank you for this wonderful spice rub. It was exactly what I was looking for !!!
Excellent! Loved this rub. I used on pork that I marinated in this rub and put in the crock pot. After 8-10 hours, shredded the meat and added our fave BBQ sauce. Excellent BBQ pork! Family loved...thanks!
I made a few changes like adding 3 Tsp cinnamon used cerry powder in stead of cumman and added 2Tsp ground thyme also
