LOOKING for: Dry Rub for Ribs

surferdudeJune 13, 2002

I just "invested" in a smoker and am wanting to cook out some ribs with-in the next few weekend. I was looking for some recipes for a dry rub that I can use. Anyone have a favorite recipe that I can use? Thanks for the help.

My favorite comes out of Smoke and Spice by Jamison. It is called Wild Willy's Number One-derful Rub.
3/4 Cup Paprika
1/4 cup ground black pepper
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoosn cayenne

Mix spices together in a bowl. Store in a cool dark pantry.

I have used this run many times. This book is a great reference and one of the most comprehensive on smoking you will find. A great addition to any library.

I have a slightly different style:

1/2 cup Paprika
1/3 cup Chili Powder
1/4 cup each Light and Dark Brown Suger (packed)
2 tbs. Onion Powder, Garlic Powder
1 tbs. Cumin Seed
1 tbs. Pepper (I use a 5 Pepper Blend)
1 tbs. Fennel Seed
1 tbs. Orange Zest
1 tsp. salt

Batch grind the ingredients in a blade coffee grinder (or use a blender or processor, once you run this in a blade grinder you won't be able to use it for coffee anymore)

I generally free pour and don't measure so these are close guesstamates.
