Rub Confusion

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm trying to understand.  Memphis pork vs Texas beef. I always think of how Memphis as sweet and hot, but very confused on Texas taste.  Can beef ribs have a sweet taste with kick?

They can have what ever you like, but texas beef is usually salt and pepper, or if you want to get crazy, s&p, onion and garlic.

I use to use the same rub for brisket and pork, but a few years ago went with s&p on a brisket and haven't gone back. But cook whatever you like

I agree, anything you like is what is best on beef brisket. Most Texas recipes are simple, S & P or SPOG. I take Salt, Pepper, Onion and Garlic, a lot further and add a little bit of Sugar...JJ


Bubba Beef Rub


Good on anything Beef. Burgers and Steaks too!


2T Turbinado Sugar

2T Kosher Salt

2T Black Peppercorns

1T Coriander Seed

1T Dill Seed

1T Dry Minced Onion

1T Dry Minced Garlic

1T Dry Lemon Peel

1tsp Allspice Berries

1tsp Dry Thyme Leaves

3 Bay Leaves, crumbled

2ea Whole Chipotle Chiles, stems and seeds removed or 1tsp Chipotle Powder


Add Cayenne if more heat is desired.


All Spices are Whole and are toasted in a dry pan over Medium heat until fragrant. The Garlic, Onion and Lemon Peel do not need to be toasted.

Let the Spices cool then Grind in a cheapo Coffee Grinder until slightly less than Coarse. Mix with the Salt and Sugar. Store in an air tight container. Makes about a Half cup...JJ
