Description

This barbecue rib rub will make your weekend better.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cups Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne

Preparation

Combine spices in a bowl and whisk together. Or put them in a bowl with a lid and shake.

To use, rub the spice mixture all over the ribs: front, back, sides, and again. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Then bake, covered in foil, at 225°F for 7–8 hours.

About 1 hour before you’re ready to serve them, take them out and slather them with your favorite barbecue sauce. Either place the ribs back in the oven (uncovered) for 30 minutes to 1 hour, or grill over medium heat, to caramelize the sauce and seal in the flavor. Serve immediately.

Note: This recipe yields approximately 1 cup of the rub, enough for 2 to 3 slabs of baby back ribs or 1 slab of spare ribs, which will feed approximately 4 to 6 people.

BTW: It’s always better to do a 2 to 1 ratio when it comes to salt and pepper. Try using twice as much fresh ground pepper to 1 part Kosher salt. Cayenne pepper ! Adjust to your heat tolerance.
I smear Olive Oil all over the ribs, then add the rub. Some people prefer a smear of Mustard. The dry rub will stick to the ribs and absorb into the meat overnight. I smoke my ribs in a homemade pellet smoker using Pit Boss’s Competition Blend Pellets. 225*F for about 2 hours, bone side down. About an hour into the cook, I take the ribs out, place on foil. The I sprinkle brown sugar on the foil, a liberal squirt of Honey, and a few tabs of butter….then wrap meat side down. You can add the BBQ sauce then as well or wait until the last 15/20 minutes and then apply the sauce. Remove from grill and let rest for a few minutes. Enjoy Semper Fi 1966-
