I'm going to smoke some ribs this week (hopefully) and would like a GOOD dry rub. We usually make 'wet' BBQ, but I'd like to try out the dry stuff.

Got any kickass dry rubs to mail order, or any great recipes? The local stores here don't really cater to dry rub BBQ.... I might find some 'Emeril' crap or something on the shelf, but other than that there's not much to choose from unless I make my own.

I use the rubs in the BBQ kits they gave out for Christmas. They're OK, but it was a great gift idea. Better than candy and cookies.

You may be VERY surprised how good equal parts salt/pepper/brown sugar is. I have used this as a rub for years.

I think we're trying this one first, since the hubster prefers his meat without sugar/molasses/honey/etc.....

I'll try some of the others later, and I think I'll order some of the Texas Rub too!


Thanks guys!

This is very similar to what I typically use
Link Posted: 5/1/2008 7:28:16 PM EDT
I always make my own. It's nothing special, I just eyeball some salt, pepper, brown sugar, and paprika. I always end up using a lot of brown sugar.

I've tried many, but I keep coming back to this one:

Spice Rub for Pork or Beef
For the best results, let the meat marinate in the rub for two hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.

2 Tbsp paprika, preferably Hungarian
2 Tbsp chile powder
1 to 2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
2 Tbsp light or dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp dry mustard
1 tsp ground sage
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup salt
1 Tbsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions: Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl or jar. Make a double or triple recipe if you like, and store it for up to a couple of months in a tightly sealed jar.

Briskets always get the mustard treatment here before the dry rub, not sure about ribs.

I read somewhere coffee grounds is great in a dry rub, have to think about that one.

For a dry BBQ & Grilling Rub, I use A.C. Legg #107 A.C. Legg Seasonings It's sold locally here and you can buy it on Ebay and other places if you Google it.



Also when I want something a little hotter:

Emeril's Essence
Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse

2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder

Episode: What's the Rub?

1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon granulated onion
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon white pepper

I eyeball my own mix:

about 2 or 3 parts Brown Sugar to 1 part Kosher Salt.
Black Pepper
Dried Mustard
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Paprika

I'll experiment occasionally:
Add Cayenne Pepper, Powdered Citrus peel, etc.

The basic rub is pretty good when they are slow smoked (light smoke).

Didn't have the Dried Mustard once, so I smeared them will yellow mustard and put the rub on after that....tasted pretty good that way.

I use one similar to that, most dry rubs have those ingredients in them, in various proportions.

When I'm lazy I just go and buy "KC Rib Doctor" dry rub from the local market. It's pretty good too.

A dry rub that I have found works really well on brisket and ribs is a combination of canadian steak seasoning, brown sugar and chili powder. Comes out great every time.

I got this off the food network show with Dave Lieberman. We were watching it and it looked so good we made it that day. I was never a fan on dry rub ribs until I made this. They are excellent everytime we make them. I add a little bit of red pepper flakes to spice it up some more.

2 pounds baby back ribs
For the Rub:
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
25 grinds fresh black pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil



Preheat over to 300 degrees F.
Mix the rub ingredients together well in a small bowl.

Remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs, then rub the vegetable oil onto the ribs. Pour the rub over the ribs and work the rub fully and evenly into the ribs. Spread the ribs out evenly on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Bake until tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside, about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

I've used that one also, and it's very tasty. I use homemade chili powder as well.

And that's for kosher salt. If you substitute table salt, back it down to 2 parts.

1/2 cup cano;a oil

The Gospel according to Saint Alton:

Dry Rub:
8 tablespoons light brown sugar, tightly packed
3 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon jalapeno seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon rubbed thyme
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

However, I use equal parts salt, pepper, sugar, paprika. I keep a shaker full of that on hand for ribs and chicken.

I did some baby back ribs Friday night and used this.

It's from the cookbook 'Simply Ming' by Ming Tsai and Arthur Boehm.

It was awesome. A bit of a change from the ordinary.

Five Spice Chile Tea Rub

3 cups lapsang souchong tea leaves
1/2 cup sea salt or kosher salt
1/2 cup red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chipotle chile powder
1/2 cup dehydrated garlic or garlic powder
1/4 cup cayenne pepper
1/4 cup dried chives or onions
1/4 cup five-spice powder

edit - This recipe make a huge batch. I cut it down and still only used part of it so I'll do some more for a dinner pic. It says that the mix keeps for 3 weeks in the fridge.

You can also vary it up by adding some onion flakes, cayenne, fennel, etc, etc...........
