Beef Rubs

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I hate to ask this but in Jeff's Newsletter it states that if you have previously bought his rub/sauce recipe if will send you his new beef rub recipe if you ask.  I've asked 3 or 4 times and have received no response that I can find.  If he isn't giving out the recipe to previous customers - that's ok - just let me know.  Thanks,  Doug

I have had no responses to my request....none in my PM box, none to my email (spam or otherwise).  Can I take it that a no response is really my answer to the question?

Didn't know he had a new rub, but then I don't use his rub anymore. Have you tried PMing TulsaJeff?

Smoke it up

I've used the contact form 3 or 4 times with no response that I could find.  Maybe I'll try that.  update: just Pm'd him.

Yeah.... the Texas rub is part of the package when you purchase the basic rib rub and sauce. It may take a little while, but it will come. Jeff stays really busy.

I will see if I can help. I am confident Jeff will get back to you. He get's a lot of requests for his Recipes with the number of new folks joining each day.


While you are waiting, here are some of my favorite Beef Rubs and an Au Jus Recipe you might like...JJ



Run for the Border Rub


One for the Chili Heads!


2T Kosher Salt

2T Ancho Chile Powder

1T Chipotle Powder

1T Oregano, Mexican is preferred 

1T Gran Garlic

1T Gran Onion

1T Black Pepper

1T Cayenne

1-2tsp Gnd Cumin

1tsp Cocoa Powder

1/2tsp Cinnamon



2T Turbinado Sugar (Sugar in the Raw)


Makes 3/4 to 1Cup Rub.


This stuff is HOT and full flavored with touch of Smokiness. Feel free to adjust the heat to your taste by playing with the amount of Chipotle and Cayenne Powder. All the ingredients are available at the Grocery Store. This stuff will also Kick Butt as the seasoning in a batch of Chili, leave out the Sugar...JJ


This is a popular recipe I have done with Pork, Brisket or just Hamburger. Depending on what I have on hand I will mix the meats...



Coffee Q Rub


1/4C Sugar in the Raw (Turbinado)

2T Sweet Paprika (Hungarian)

2T Fine Ground Coffee

1T Kosher Salt

1T Chili Powder (contains some Cumin and Oregano) Ancho Chile is same without cumin, oregano etc.

1T Granulated Garlic

1T Granulated Onion

1T Black Pepper, more if you like

1tsp Ground Coriander

1tsp Ground Dill Seed

1/2tsp Grnd Allspice


Cayenne or Chipotle Pwd to taste, start with 1/2tsp and go from there.


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 (optional)

1tsp Allspice Berries

1tsp Dry Thyme Leaves

3 Bay Leaves, crumbled

1-2ea Dry 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, 1-2 minutes. The Garlic and Onion 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


Many folks enjoy dipping their Beef in Au Jus for flavor and moisture. This recipe is made in the Smoker while a Beef Roast or Brisket is being cooked.


Smokey Au Jus


1- Lg Onion,

4-5 Carrots,

3-4 Ribs Celery

3-4 Peeled Cloves of Garlic

Toss them in a pan under the Beef, and let the whole deal Smoke for one hour,

THEN add 4-6 Cups Beef Broth,

2 Tbs Tomato Paste,

1/2tsp Dry Thyme (4-5 sprigs Fresh)

1-2 ea Bayleaf

Finish the Smoking process to the IT you want. 

While the Roast is resting, dump the pan juices veggies and all into a 2-3Qt Sauce pot and add 1Cup Red Wine, something you like to drink, and bring the Jus to a boil, lower the heat and simmer 20-30 minutes. Strain out the veggies and let the Jus rest a minute or so for the Fat to rise. Skim off the bulk of the fat then using strips of paper towel laid on top of the Jus, drag quickly across to take off the last little bit of fat.

The purpose of Smoking the Vegetable for 1 hour before adding the Broth and Herbs is...The Smoked vegetables Roast in the Dry heat concentrating their Flavors and Sweetness giving the finished Jus a Richer, Deeper, Full Flavor.

Serve the sliced Beef Au Jus or thicken the Jus to make Gravy.


NOTE: If you are using this recipe with Brisket or a long smoke, additional Water will have to be added periodically to maintain the proper volume. Do not add more Broth as repeated addition and reduction will make the Au Jus too salty..

My favorite rub for beef is SPOG. Just something about keeping things simple and letting the meat shine!
