    Here's the rub I use on beef Prime rib, and beef ribs. It came from the executive chef @ McIlhenney Plantation which is home of the famous Tabasco hot sauce. The recipe was given to me by a friend that runs a Duck hunting lodge in Arkansas. He got it from the man himself.


    1 cup + 2 tbsp Salt

    1/4 cup + 3 1/2 tbsp black pepper

    3 tbsp paprika

    1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar

    1/4 cup + 2 tbsp garlic powder

    1/4 cup + 2 tbsp accent

    allow to sit for 24 hours

    Simple, but it is money on beef.....

    Man,that sounds like a lot of MSG!
    I am not averse to MSG,as it doesn't affect me like some people.

    Makes almost 4 cups of rub. It's not as much MSG as it looks...and you are only using about 1/2 TBSP. per pound of meat so.....

    Looks good. I was expecting some Heat in there. Years ago my wife found a bottle of Tabasco Powder coated Red Pepper Flakes. Man that stuff lit up a slice of Pizza! Had the Tabasco Heat, the Vinegar Tang and the back burner of the Red Pepper Flakes...JJ

    My understanding is that when they want to do a spicy one, they rub the prime rib down with Tabasco. BTW, they make a family reserve Tabasco, which is made from the peppers grown on site. It is aged 5 years and made with white wine vinegar. You can not buy it, you have to be given a bottle by one of the family. We put one in an auction for one of the cancer organizations....it brought in $20,000.

  10. Looks good and i like the idea of a hot sauce rub before the dry rub. Is the salt kosher or fine.
