I like the pig's flavor to shine through so usually it's just salt and pepper for me. I don't sauce them either. At our house the sauce is warmed up and on the table to apply as desired.

I make my own, but Jeff's rub is excellent & can be tweaked to your own taste.

I have my own recipe that I will use occasionally. Lately my folks are enjoying Jeff's rub. I tweaked it just a little to take out some heat and add a little sweet. Jeff's rub and sauce recipes are very user friendly. Also I use them as a base for a braise, glaze or anything that needs a little extra taste.

Give them a try, you can't go wrong. Good luck and keep on smokin', Joe grilling_smilie.gif

This is my fav. The kids put it on Fries and Popcorn as well...JJ


Cajun Rib Tickler


1C Tubinado or Dried Brown Sugar*

1/4C Paprika**

2T Kosher Salt

2T Garlic Powder

2T Onion Powder

2T Mustard Powder

2T Chili Powder

2tsp Black Pepper

1-2tsp Cayenne

2tsp Dry Oregano

2tsp Dry Thyme

2tsp Cry Celery Flakes

1tsp Celery Seed


Grind the Oregano, Thyme, Celery Flake and Seed. Mix all and store in air tight container, up to 3 months...


Notes...* Leave out the Sugar for a Cajun Blackening Spice. Spinkle a lot or a little, on whatever meat, dip in melted Butter or Olive oil and saute in a very hot pan until cooked to your desired IT.

             ** If you wish you can use Smoked Paprika in the recipe. This will give a seasoning that will add some "Smokey flavor" to Grilled, Sauteed, Fried or Roasted meat, not just stuff you smoke.


Mix and store in an air tight container...JJ

I like Jeffs rub. I bought the recipes years ago and somehow misplaced the hard copies last summer. They dropped off my email a long time ago. I sent Jeff a email asking if he would resend them and he did the next day without question. I tweak on Jeffs recipe just a bit with a single ingredient that I won't divulge here but sends it over the top. Nobody can put their finger on it but everyone knows it's there. We all have to have our secrets right? :439:

Thanks Jeff for the great recipes and excellent service :77:
