This is a basic dry rub I made with spices in my pantry and fridge. Everyone loved these ribs and ask for them time and time again.

I just loved this rub. I have to say that I did add salt. I think that it enhances the flavor of the other ingredients. My hubby loves sauce so I put BBQ sauce on his. I ate mine with just the rub. I gave mine a 5 star rating. He gave his a 4 said that the herbs interfered with the BBQ sauce. That bein said I think that this recipe is Da Bomb. Love it and will continue to use it. Thank you so much for posting. Read More

This came out really good. I used country ribs because that's what I had in the freezer and subbed oregano for thyme (never use thyme in my house). Probably due to the cut of ribs but cooking time was only about one hour. Came out very tender and extremely flavorful. This is certainly going into the rotation! Read More

I prefer dry rubs myself over wet rubs and the taste of these were Wonderful. I kept right with the recipe, except cut the seasoning measurements in half. I had 3.75lbs of ribs and this was plenty! Enjoy guys. Read More
