Great rub for smoking or roasting pork, or for use in a slow cooker on a Boston butt. Great for ribs, too.

I love this rub as it made the pork loin very juicy and tender. I am going to triple this and save it for future uses. The loin sliced so nicely and each fairly crunchy and flavorful slice had the rub taste. Def. not spicy just right. Read More

I make this up and keep it in a mason jar. I use it on so many things! It's very flavorful, but not too spicy. I can always add spices if I need to for a particular dish. As written, it works for us. We love it! Thanks for posting it! Read More

This rub is terrific! Only 4 stars simple b/c I added leftover morning coffee to the rub. After I marinaded it a few hours, I reduced it and made a glaze to go over the Tri Tip roast I had grilled.Very nice! Thank You Jamie:) Keeper! Read More

Made this and it WAS GREAT!!! Thanks for the Recipe! Loved the Cayenne Kick!! I'm just one guy live by myself and never married so I didn't take and spoon out all kinds of seasonings Tsp this Tbl sp of that. And I just sprinkled on all of the seasonings after I smeared on a coating of Olive Oil so the seasonings will stick to the chops. They were very dry. I had almost 4 lbs of center cut chops called Iowa Chops. A HUGE pack of it with 3 center cuts in it and real thick. I sprinkled all the seasonings on both sides of 2 of them and rubbed it in. I should have only cooked one couldn't eat the other. Steve Read More

Excellent! Used this on a small pork roast that I cooked in the slow cooker for to make pulled pork. I pretty much reduce everything by half since I didn't need a whole lot and I used some smoked sea salt as I had that on hand. Smelled so good and tasted even better! Seriously I didn't even need to add anything else. Can't wait to use this on ribs Read More

I have used this on a pork shoulder as well as ribs. It makes great bark. I added a touch more brown sugar for the ribs. It is now my favorite. Read More

This is very good. I think I am realizing that chili powder in a dry rub is not my favorite. So I will reduce or eliminate it next time. I also only used about 1/2 tsp. cayenne. Read More
