does anyone konw of a good rib rub?
i am looking for something sweet, maybe with brown sugar???
Sorry dude, I can't use the search function for some reason. I don't use brown sugar in the rub because it tends to burn easily. It's better to slather a little BBQ sauce on them at the end. Other than that, just use a little of each of your favorite seasonings.
Heres a personal favorite:
3/8 cup Paprika
3 TBSP Brown Sugar
3/8 Cup Dry Mustard Powder
1 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
1 1/2 TSP Celery Seed
1 1/2 TSP Sea Salt or Non-Iodized Salt
1 1/2 TSP Ground Thyme
1 1/2 TSP Ground Marjoram
1 1/2 TSP Coriander
3/4 TSP Cayenne
2 Cups Cane Sugar, or Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Seasoned Salt
1 TSP Ground Allspice
1/2 TSP Ground Ginger
1/4 TSP Ground Cloves
It makes about 3.5 cups. If you want a spicy variation (which I highly recommend) you can add:
2 TBSP Black Pepper
1 TBSP Cayenne
1 TBSP Dried Jalapeno Powder
******* Its not good on the grill though, only in the smoker or else the sugars are going to burn.
Jeff's rub is a highly recommended rub. You can't go wrong with it, and it helps support the site. I don't like using sauce on my ribs much at all. Rather a good rub "makes its own sauce".
For a stock out of the box sweet rub, you might want to give Adkins Western Style Barbecue Seasoning a try. It's pretty sweet tasting. It was given to me to try from a friend in Dallas, Tx. www.adkinsbbq.com My personal favorites are Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning or Zatarain's Creole Seasoning. As a side note, you can sweeten up the Creole Seasoning with a spritz of apple juice before foiling.
Here's mine! Hope you try and like it!
Take care, have fun, and do good!
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
¼ cup paprika
Try using turbinado sugar instead of brown sugar. It doesnt burn as easily.
Which (in case anyone doesn't know) is "Sugar in the Raw" or any other type of Hawaiian, unbleached sugar.
We like Curious Aardvark's rub with cherry smoke.
Thanks Justin, was actually looking at rub recipes and wondered what turbinado was.
>>>a good rub "makes its own sauce".<<<
amen to that!
Meowy's got the rub, too.
