A rub for all meats, but we use mainly ribs in Tennessee. Brown sugar, ground peppers and spices are blended to bring out the full flavor of whatever you decide to toss on the grill!

I've used this rib rub many times while grilling or baking ribs and they always turn out great. I bought my first smoker this weekend and used this rub on a rack of spareribs the rub combined with the smoke flavor made some of the best ribs I've ever had! I highly recommend this rub! Read More

This was a great rub we used it on pork chops. I left out the white pepper and I'm glad I did otherwise it would have gotten too spicy. This rub will become a staple in our house. Read More

Really really good! Tried it on spareribs and they came out just like the best Tennessee BBQ! Needs no "tweaking" perfect as submitted. Thanks for this one it's a keeper! Read More

Really good. Kinda bitter and not sweet enough for me but still really good. It's spicy so keep that in mind if you're feeding children. Read More

I make this rub every time I smoke pork. Puts a great bark on the outside. Also excellent on steak if you like a Montreal flavor. Read More

I decided to make Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp at the last second for a party and I didn't have barbeque seasoning let alone knowing what went in it. This appetizer turned out to be the crowd favorite hugely due to this recipe! Read More
