Beef Rib Rub

Are you making Brisket?? I have used Cookshack beef rub and I really like that. But a lot of people like to keep it simple with beef. Usually just a bit of garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper will make a great rub. Sorry I don't have a specific rub I use because keeping it simple turns out great for me.

Thats the way I like it.  Salt and Pepper.  Let that pricey beef come out.

Try this.  it works great with beef ribs.  I always use a good sweet and spicy sauce to finish in the last hour of cooking. 

½ cup Turbinado (raw) sugar

3 TBsp Kosher salt

2 TBsp Onion powder

2 TBsp Garlic powder

1 ½ TBsp black pepper

1 Tsp  ground Thyme

1 Tsp Red pepper flakes ( double or triple this if you like things spicy)
