This rub was O.K. but it has a fundamental flaw. Never, EVER rub salt into the meat until just (10-20 mins.) before cooking time! This really dries out whatever meat you are using and adds to the overall saltiness of your dish. I grew up in the midwest and cooked at a rib joint for four years, making literally tons of ribs. Please do not make potentially great BBQ average by salting it too early!
Every year I make baby-back ribs for about 60 people for the 4th of July. This dry rub has perfected my recipe! (First, sprinkle ribs generously with liquid smoke, then add dry rub - wrap individually in foil and bake slowly in oven - add some BBQ sauce and throw on the grill for a few minutes!
I used it today for our pork steaks and OMG, it was SOOO yummy. It kept the steaks juicy and was perfect. I did like all the suggestions said and added dried onion and some red pepper. I let it sit in the fridge for 5.5 hours. My husband was raving about it and even my "no, I'll wait and eat pizza at the party" son ate some.
I'll be making this OFTEN.
I put it in the blender and mixed it all together so I could put it in a seasoning jar. Makes it easier to apply and store.
We really loved this rub. For years I had used one from Cuisine Magazine, but couldn't find the recipe anymore. I tried this one and my family raved that they were the best ribs yet. I made some alterations...
* Cut back to about 1 Tbsp kosher salt
* Used 1 teaspoon pepper
* Used 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder
* Added about 1 tsp of dry mustard powder
I cooked the ribs in a slow oven (about 250 degrees) for 3 1/2 hours. This was for 2 2 slabs. Then, grilled them and added some BBQ sauce while grilling
Overall, a very good rub. However I upped the brown sugar to 1/4 cup, cut back the salt to 2 tsp. and the black pepper down to 1/2 tsp. And, because I love to play with a recipe I added 1 tsp. of onion powder, 1 Tbsp. of cumin, and 1 Tbsp. of chili powder. I rubbed some baby back ribs with this and marinated for a few hours vs. overnight.
This a very nice dry rub. So easy and fast to prepare. A person is also very likely to have all the ingredients on hand. A real plus in my house! I used this dry rub as a base for BBQ country ribs. I tasted the ribs with only the dry rub and then after the BBQ was added. My family and I liked better with just this dry rub on it. Give this recipe a whirl, you'll be glad you did.
This is delicious! I've tried it on ribs that have marinated for 3 hours, and on ribs that I just rubbed down and threw in the oven. Tastes the same! It comes out a little spicy, so next time I might cut the black pepper in half. But still finger lickin' good!
