Finger Licking BBQ Rib Rub Recipe

Best BBQ Rib Rub

Happy Sunday everyone!!  Can you smell it??  Ohhh, yeah!! That’s summer right around the corner!!!  I love Memorial day weekend!  Beers, BBQ and Beaches are whats on the agenda, but before all the fun starts I wanted to share this delicious BBQ rib rub recipe.  This is a super easy recipe and I typically make a huge batch then save it to use throughout the summer.  You can use this on chicken or pork.  Typically I cover my meats the day before to help let all the flavors infuse; however if you are in a rush you can do it an hour before.  This BBQ rib rub will make you look like the BBQ God or Goddess at your next cook out, you don’t have tell anyone it only took you a second to make 😉

So what are you up to this holiday weekend?  Whatever it is I hope you have a fun and safe holiday and don’t forget to take a moment to honor those who’s lives were lost for our freedom.  Thank you to all those who have served and still do!  Have a happy and safe memorial day Ya’ll!

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

2 Tablespoons Chili Powder

1 Tablespoon Smoked Paprika

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Black Pepper

2 teaspoons Cumin

* Ribs or Poultry of your choice

In a small bowl combine all of the spices and stir or mix with your hands until evenly distributed.

On a large serving platter evenly coat the ribs with the rib rub mixture and cover with plastic wrap.  Allow the ribs to sit in the fridge covered for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours to allow the flavors to infuse into the meat.

When you are ready prepare your smoker with the charcoal, and whatever flavor chips you want to have for the smoking.  I soak my chips for at least 1 hour or longer.

I always place a few slices of smoked bacon on top of the ribs to give them extra flavor and it allows the bacon drippings to base the ribs as they cook allowing for a much more moist and juicy rib.

Place the ribs in the smoker and allow to cook until they are fork tender or for about 3-4 hours (depending on the weight).  Once cooked you can then coat them with your favorite BBQ sauce or eat them as is.
